Enjoying a beer in a foreign land is one of the primary pathways to exploring a new culture, meeting locals and soaking up the scenery (and the suds).
But the price of that beer varies wildly around the world, and a new study by a Berlin-based startup company called GoEuro helps gauge how cheap, or expensive a city can be by monitoring average beer prices around the world.
For example, the study shows that you’ll find your cheapest beer buzz in Poland, Berlin or Prague where a bottle bought at a local store will set you back a little over $1.00 (79-93 euros).
On the other hand, a moment of beerjoyment will set you back significantly more in Tokyo, Zurich or Oslo, where you’ll pay nearly $5.00 (3.03-3.55 euros) per bottle.

The Beer Price Index, which calculated the average cost of buying some of the world’s most well-known beers in 40 major cities across the globe, was carried out by GoEuro, the online travel search engine.
This study was made based on the cost of a 33cl bottle in a regular discount store, with several worldwide brands and a major local brand. Keep in mind that buying a beer at a store is significantly less then buying one at a bar or restaurant!
