This project is an attempt to track the price of NC craft beer in Asheville. The AVL Beer Price Index (ABPI) will not compare costs from store to store. Instead, it will be an average of prices from various retail and pub locations around the area.
The stores and bars chosen are based on my preference and are not by any means comprehensive. Similarly, the beers represented in the ABPI are the most consistently available NC craft beers and the list is not comprehensive. The ABPI will track the cost of six-packs and bombers from retailers and the cost of draft pints from bars.
This project was inspired by the Portland Beer Price Index.
Stay tuned for updates.
