Is This the Cheapest Airport Beer in the United States?

There's a secret waiting across from gate A20 at Phoenix Sky Harbor, and it might just be the cheapest airport beer in the entire United States. Opened just two months ago, Four Peaks Brewery will pour you a pint of any of its craft-brew drafts for $4.50!

This is not a mistake, a two-for-one special promotion or a discount because we smile pretty -- the receipt above reflects the every day price of two beers at Four Peaks Brewery in Sky Harbor. Seeing as we've paid not much less than that for a Coors Light at airports in the past (cough, JFK, cough), we were quite pleased as you can imagine (in all honesty, we were so pumped when we saw the tab for the first beer that we did the respectable thing and ordered another).

The reason for the airport bargain is thanks to Sky Harbor's commitment to what it calls "street side pricing." There are almost 40 local restaurants/vendors located in the airport, and all offer their food and drinks at the same price you would get them at their city location.

We think Sky Harbor deserves a standing applause for this initiative. From sports stadiums to movie theaters, we live in a world where businesses do their best to take advantage of "trapped" customers. To see an operation as large as an airport cut its customers a break (when it really doesn't have to) is an unbelievable ray of hope for the future.

Know of other airports who are taking a similar approach, or simply have a tip for a bargain in a specific terminal somewhere? Let us know in the comments below.
