WHY DO SOME BEERS COST MORE THAN OTHERS? Return to top of page
Beers at PIB cost 1-7 tickets. 1 tix = $1. We have lot's of 1 & 2 tix beers so don't worry. PIB's pricing is directly related to what beers normally cost in stores & bars. Some are more expensive and might cost $30-$50 on the shelf. We afford you the opportunity to SAMPLE the fancy stuff without springing for a bottle. This system makes our event unique, enabling people to try $40 bottle beers for $5 or so.
