9:30 Club ups price of suds, more venues to follow?

Beer Taps Going The Way of the Gas Pump

That post on the DCist was brought to my attention today.

The markup on booze is the heroin of night club owners. I know that’s where their major operating capital comes from, but $6 for a domestic is just plain out of touch, considering I bought a case of 12 Blue Moon bottles for $28 in Virginia just last week, and Yuengling can be found in stores for about $1.00 – $1.50 a bottle.

If anyone’s really going to suffer from this, it’s going to be the tips bartenders get… though the price increase is no fault of their own.
