Inversely proportional to the square root of the diameter of the distance a fully laoded 18 wheeler can travel on a full tank of gas. Divided by zero.

You forgot to factor in wind resistance.

Craft beer made in Maryland seems too expensive for me to buy when I visit Maryland. If it costs more elsewhere, I shuddered to think at how much they are charging. ;)

Dogfishhead, which comes from nearby Delaware, is also a bit pricey. I only get their cheapest IPA, and only when itís on sale. Their regular prices have priced me out.

I find that distance from brewery has little relation to beer prices and the market you live in has a much bigger effect.

BTW, Sam Adams is not brewed in boston for the mass market - they only have a pilot brewery here - the great majority of their beer is either made in OH or PA.

But SA six packs range from $9 - $10.50 in the Boston area - more than the avg price for the rest of the country I would think. Sierra Nevada is in the same range. But we get raped in the boston area for craft beer sub $9 six packs are extremely rare these days - maybe a couple locals and redhook/widmer depending on the store are just barely under $9.

If Jimmy leaves brewery A heading west on a train travelling 55 mph and Betty leaves brewery B on a train heading east at 53 mph, how drunk will fly be before the sun rises?
