Beer being served up at a concession stand. / Robert Hanashiro, USA TODAY

Business Insider recently published a chart of the prices of a small draft beer at all 30 NBA arenas. The results were ... intoxicating.

Most expensive

(Tie) $9, New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns

That stuff is expensive in New York is no surprise. Phoenix raised some eyebrows, however. Initially, I had a grand theory that because Phoenix is landlocked, it's harder to get beer there. And other landlocked cities, like Denver, have breweries nearby, so I was pretty proud of myself, like when I destroy the categories on Teen Jeopardy! But a Google search for "why is stuff expensive in Phoenix" turned up nothing, so those mysterious $9 beers at Suns games will have to stay that way.

Least expensive

(Tie) $5, Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs

Do they even need to sell beer at Thunder games? Watching Kevin Durant should provide enough of a buzz.

Worst correlation between beer price and beer necessity

Washington Wizards, $8

It's one thing to pay $8 to drink some suds while watching LeBron and Dwyane Wade. It's another to do so while watching Nene and Jan Vesely.

Mean

$7.08

Business Insider reports that the average price is up 1.7% from last year's mean of $6.96

Median

$7.27

Why is it a weird number like that? Blame it on those wacky Canadians and their $7.29 beers at the Toronto Raptors game. (Every other price is in increments of 25 cents.)

Mode

$7

The Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Hornets, Portland Trailblazers and Sacramento Kings all sell their beers for $7. Those must be some mediocre brews.
