This is a Lord of the Rings geocache puzzle described at: http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC4BDYD_lotr-026

I had to make a few assumptions about the range and the increment for the A category just like Passel. I used a $40 minimum and a $5 increment. I assumed that the increments were constant across the range.

I got the following solution:

$40 - Bilbo - pint - porter
$45 - Frodo - pitcher - lager
$50 - Merry - tankard - Pilsner
$55 - Pippin - mug - stout
$60 - Rosie - bottle - hefeweizen
$65 - Sam - humpen - dark ale

This leads to these coordinates if I have interpreted the geocache instructions right: N 34 48.518 W 92 24.946. According to Certitude, these are not the correct coordinates. So at least you know one combination that doesn't work .
