Firstly, we chose to use the dollar as this is the most common currency used internationally, and we chose to base the calculations on a $1 benchmark to offer a fair comparison. We decided to display our findings on a 568ml pint pot, instead of the obvious map choice, so you could visualise exactly how much beer you would get for your money.

If you’re looking for the cheapest pints in the world, based on our research Paraguay and Vietnam are the best countries to visit. At just one dollar for a beer, and that’s in a bar not the supermarket, you won’t need much to spend much to get a little merry.

The most expensive bar prices for a pint around the globe are in Iceland. $12.75 is the price you’d need to pay in a Reykjavik bar for a beer. Second on the list is Oslo in Norway where it would cost you $11.30 for a beer, followed by Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates where it would set you back $10.83.
