Stop charging $27 for a beer at airports, the Port Authority tells concessionaires | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors

Could a beer bought at one of the New York City region's three major airports finally cost less than purchasing a brew at Yankee Stadium? Last summer, an investigation found customers were charged an "indefensible" $23 to $27 for a "seasonal beer" purchased from a LaGuardia airport eatery. "Nobody should have to fork over such an exorbitant amount for a beer," said Kevin O'Toole, Port Authority board chairman. The Aviation Department has announced that all prices at concessions will be routinely monitored to ensure they are aligned with the regional marketplace.
