People hoping to have a beer at the PGA Championship better be ready to take out a second mortgage.
Beers at the event being played at Southern Hills in Oklahoma are outrageously expensive to the point it’s hard to believe it’s even real. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
How expensive are we talking? A Michelob Ultra will cost you $18, according to Golf.com. Yes, for the price of a case of Busch Light, you can have a single Michelob Ultra at the PGA Championship.
You can see a viral tweet listing the prices for all the drink options below.

Imagine paying $6 for water! You can get a whole meet at a fast food place for $6 or you can get a bottle of water at the PGA Championship!
Who the hell is paying these prices?
UPDATE: The liquor store owner had 10 cases of Busch Light delivered first thing this morning.
This is why it’s always a good idea to make friends with bartenders, bar owners and liquor store owners.

If someone tried to charge me $18 for a mediocre at best beer, I would laugh in their face. I would legit laugh in their face at this price point.
I feel bad enough spending $12 on a beer at an NHL game. I’m damn sure not going to do it at a golf event and chip in more money. That’s simply not going to happen!
It’s Friday night in America. We have @BuschBeer chilling on ice in my @OrcaCoolers, college football is going to happen, I have my @Yellowstone hat on, sitting in my @BadgerFootball chairs and we’re going to win the war against coronavirus.
