For beer lovers on a budget, SaveOnBrew.com is a website worth a look.
Updated daily, the site lists sale prices on beer at more than 50,000 retail locations across the country, eliminating the need to thumb through all those sales circulars hunting for the best price on your favorite brand.
From Blue Moon and Bud to Yuengling, SaveOnBrew.com has got you covered on advertised sale prices.
But you're out of luck if you're looking for the best beer prices at retailers such as Target, Walmart and the warehouse clubs, which typically don't include that information in their ads.
In the Triangle, you can find advertised beer prices for Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Food Lion, Piggly Wiggly and Walgreens on SaveOnBrew.com, though because of a glitch in data entry the beer prices for Lowes Foods aren't included this week.
The site is simple to use.
Just plug in your ZIP code and how far you're willing to drive, and SaveOnBrew.com generates a list of beer deals. The site even does the math for you, giving you the price per bottle or can. The list also lets you know how many days are left until the sale is over.
You can choose to view all beer sales in your area or you can narrow the list to certain brands or stores.
While you're on SaveOnBrew.com, be sure to check out this blog post on the Beer Blog.
