I think this is a good name for a bluegrass tune. Just saying.

For it to be a country song the numbers would need to be reversed and a dog would have to have died.   :D

In the Dead song Cumberland Blues, there is the line "make good Money , $5 a day". Nothing is said about beer though.

Funny, I was listening to a Jerry Garcia/dead Pandora station, drinking a couple DIPAs while cleaning up the kitchen when the expression occurred to me, I wonder if they played that and I subconsciously took it in. Somehow I had been thinking about what it was like when people made $5/day then thought "well, beer probably cost a nickel" then thought "sounds like a song".
The country version: I only make a nickel and I killed my dog for drinking my $5 beer.

Might be, it happens. Regardless, as a huge Dead fan, good reference.

If you bump up the cost of beer to a dime, there would be many more lyrical rhyming options:
I make five dollars a day and a beer costs a dime,
I'd drink all day but I don't have the time...

Spent a few hours on the road this weekend and heard VH's Beautiful Girls a few times and my wife and I kept doing the beer ad. 

I make five dollars a day and a beer costs a nickel,
so I ask the bartender how much for a pickle?
And as he gives his mustache a tickle,
says “a pickle’s a nickle, Mr. Van Syckle”

If that's the chorus, my vote is you call it Brewery Owner's Blues. ::)
