Every beer drinker knows it: The only thing better than drinking beer is drinking it at a low price. While we Americans are blessed with delicious beers across our 50 states, there's a whole constellation of countries out there that peddle their brews for cheaper than we do. Every year, the site GoEuro compiles a "beer price index" that looks at data from 70 cities around the world and compiles it into a ranked list of the cheapest places, on average, where you can buy a sudsy adult beverage.
Bratislava, Slovakia, and Kiev, Ukraine, top the list for the cheapest beer-drinking cities based on data from 2016, with average combined prices of $1.65 and $1.66 USD per beer, respectively. Otherwise-cool destinations like Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo bring up the tail-end of the list with average prices of $6.22, $5.75, and $5.48. The most expensive city on the list is Lausanne, Switzerland, where an average single beer -- based on totals at both supermarkets and in bars -- costs $9.51. The prices were calculated based on average prices for a 33cl (about 11oz) can of beer of several global and major local brands in each location, as well as adjustments for inflation, according to GoEuro.
