Next to Wisconsin, Michigan has outstanding beer. But does it have cheap beer? Yes. The cheapest case of beer in the country, according to one study. The team at Simple Thrifty Living put together a study that measured out the average cost of a 24-pack of beer in each of the 50 states. Michigan’s average cost is $14.62, beating out California ($14.87), Illinois ($15.00) and North Carolina ($15.23). Pennsylvania has the most expensive beer ($21.98 per 24-pack) – which shouldn’t be surprising, given the state’s strict laws on alcohol – followed by Tennessee ($21.97) and Texas ($21.66).
As for Wisconsin, we ranked about in the middle of the study, coming in at $18.11 for a 24-pack.
