Quaffing All Over The World

I'm posting this information as a service for beer drinkers planning to go abroad. Deutsche Bank has compiled a chart showing how much it costs in 2017 to buy either a pint or a half litre of beer in a local pub in an expat area of the city concerned.

The dearest is Oslo at $9.90 (£7.59), London is $6.40 (£4.90) and the cheapest listed is Prague at $1.30 (£1.00). I find it interesting that in Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta, both capital cities of countries with large Muslim populations (indeed, Indonesia has more Muslims than any other country), the prices in sterling work out at £3.15 and £3.22 respectively - considerably less than London.

  1. This is in terms of currency transfer. In those Muslim countries you will find tourists can afford £3.21 but that is out of the reach of the average local worker who would also not be admitted to the 4 star hotel bar that sells it even if they had saved up.

  2. Perhaps, but there is no shortage of ordinary working people in the UK who cannot afford to go out for a drink very often.
