Here's where to find the best beer deals at Wisconsin State Fair

Much like Summerfest, the Wisconsin State Fair got off to a rainy start. However, if there is one thing that was proved between the two unfortunate festival beginnings, it's that nothing stops Wisconsinites from enjoying the summer festivities – and, of course, it would not be a true Wisconsin festival without beer.

The choices at the fair are plentiful in terms of where to buy beer, and the prices vary too. So to make the choosing a little easier, here is where to find the cheapest beer prices at the fair.

Rule of thumb: A good rule of thumb is to expect to pay at least $5 for a cup of beer and at least $6 for a can. Regardless of where you purchase your beverage, domestics will always be cheaper than imports.

Least expensive

Double K Ranch, Steak Stop, Cancun Cantina and Rupena's Foods

There is a four-way tie for the cheapest beer at the fair. At all four locations, a cup of domestic beer – such as Miller Lite, Coors Light, Miller High Life, Miller 64 or Pabst Blue Ribbon – is $5, while a can of the same brands are $6.50.

Meanwhile, a can of all other domestics and imports is $7, which includes Redd's, Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy, Corona, Mike's and more.

Both the Double K Ranch and Steak Stop are directly across from the newly located giant Ferris wheel by the WE Energies building. Rupena's Foods is near the Champion Hall, and the Cancun Cantina is located at ramp seven of the Main Stage.

Moderately expensive

Mille's Italian Sausage, Saz's, Tavern At The Park and Charcoal Grill Roadhouse

At Mille's, you can get a cup of Miller Lite or Blue Moon for $5.50. Mille's is near the Mile Marketplace.

At Tavern At The Park, Saz's and Charcoal Grill Roadhouse, a cup of traditional domestic beer is $6, while a can is $6.50 at Tavern At The Park. A can is $7 at both Saz's and Charcoal Grill.

Tavern At The Park is directly across from ramp five of the Main Stage. Saz's is located on Country Central Avenue near the bathrooms and Charcoal Grill is around the corner.

Most expensive

At every other location at the fair, including the Miller Lite Sports Bar & Grill, expect to pay at least $6.50. For those that enjoy Budweiser products, there are Budweiser stands located around the fair with prices starting at $6.50.
