I have a beer question. How are Bud and Miller packed in your area, 24 or 30 pack cases?

I now live in central Arkansas and virtually all domestic beers are packed in cases of 30. I recently visited northern Arkansas and all the same beers were packed in 24 packs. I visit family north of Boston, and the beers are in 24 packs. When I make it up to Sebago Lake Region of Maine, the beers are in 30 packs.

Does anyone know why there is a difference from region to region? What do you have in your region?

Btw, a 30 pack here is usually about $23 after tax.

I have not seen Bud in 30 packs but have Miller.

The students at Miami University always buy there Natty in cases of 30. Ohio State students buy either 18 or 24 cans at a time (can't remember which one)...

If I recall correctly, Strohs used to have a 15 pack, back in the late 80's

I work in packaging and have seen polyethelene overwrap like on bottled water. on beers. The print said it was 24 11 ounce cans. I think it was test marketed in Puerto Rico, maybe. I can live in a world of 11 ounce beers.

No 30 packs in Dayton that I can find but 18 and 24 packs are everywhere.

Is this an oxymoron?

We don't have 24 packs here in central Arkansas. We do have 18 packs and recently Miller Lite has introduces 15 packs. It might be an introductory price, but the 15 packs are cheaper per can than the 18 and even the 30 packs.

Does anyone know why there is a difference? Is it marketing?
