The three stages of how we drink
Beer bar drinkers typically spend $30 per visit.
In our sample of beer bars, more than 75 percent of checks — or three in four — are less than $50. The median spending at beer bars during 2010 and 2011 was $30, which means there's a 50 percent chance that a beer imbiber will spend less than $30 at a beer bar during his or her visit. For example, at Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn, New York, drinkers typically spend around $26 during their visit.
