Like if I were to get a 6pack of Sam Adams lager from a retailer in Boston, is there much of a difference in price on average than if I were to get it at a store in say Arizona? Or a 6pack of Anchor Steam from a retailer in San Francisco vs buying that same beer at a store in New York. Or is a case of Budweiser any cheaper at a supermarket in St Louis vs getting that same case in Montana. Or any other brand of beer. Regardless of any taxes, does the distance and shipping costs affect the retail price of beer that much?

Do you see any noticeable difference in the stores beer prices as you go closer or farther from where that beer is made? Or are the retail beer prices uniform across the country? Why and why not?

Yep, thereís a Sam Adams factory right outside of downtown in OTR. I think itís where they make Cherry Wheat (and whatever else), as they use MI cherries in it.
