Would you pay $28 for a beer at the airport?

Even if you've been travelling for days, and it's all you've been looking forward to?

Travelling can be a very tedious and stressful task, especially in this day and age with all the added planning and tests needed. Therefore, the only thing you want when you're waiting for your flight is a nice cold beer – but would you buy it, if it cost $28?

Cooper Lund posted a photo of an airport menu on Twitter and it has deeply disturbed the internet.

The tweet shows a Sam Adams beer priced at $28 in a Biergarten outlet at LaGuardia airport. This seems like an outrageously expensive pint of beer, but the company in charge has addressed it.

OTG Management, the company in charge of these three New York airport drinking establishments, saw the tweet and responded, saying the price was incorrect.

They replied to the tweet saying: “Yikes. GOOD CATCH! That Sam Summer **price is incorrect** and has been updated. + note all other listed prices are for 23oz pours.

“We very much appreciate you spotting. DM us next time you’re passing through – on us.”

Would you have paid the price?

  • I once spent 5 hours in a transfer at the Ezeiza airport in Buenos Aires. I would have given my left nut for a cheeseburger and a coke, so you get the idea...

  • You would have. You bought a £300 Coke in Turkey. I think it was upper case Coke, wasn't it?

  • No. When it comes to drinking 1 isn’t possible and you are not allowed drunk or tipsy on a plane
