So before we get to the events I was directed to an article regarding the affordability of beer. The folks over at Nerdwallet Finance did some analysis of how affordable beer is in many major cities and ranked them. Number one went to Washington D.C. The sixth most affordable place is Virginia Beach. Check out their findings here. http://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/2014/least-expensive-cities-beer-drinkers/
