The cheapest beer you can find at an NFL stadium is $5.00. Seven teams sell $5 beer, the Bengals, Browns, Giants, Jets, Panthers, Seahawks and Texans
Six of those teams give you 12 ounces in exchange for your green portrait of Abraham Lincoln – but the Bengals give you 14 ounces. Those two extra ounces help the Bengals claim the title as the team with the best value for cheap beer at their stadium.
Not only are the Bengals going that extra mile on the field to stay undefeated, but they are going that "extra ounce" at the Paul Brown Stadium concessions to make sure their fans are the most economically quenched in the league. And for that, we can only say "Who Dey!"
