I drink beer to supplement my bones with vitamin D and prevent bone degeneration. Saying that makes me feel I’m making a healthy lifestyle choice every time I pop a bottle. I could be, at least according to the International Journal of Endocrinology that had published a study on the health promise of beer (you can also check our previous infographic that matched beer against wine for health benefits).
But here’s the better news—beer can be dirt cheap in some corners of the planet. Best software comparisons show that if you’re traveling and you enjoy a couple bottles of beer (and some more) after a day’s tour, the infographic will help you find the country where you can get really cheap “vitamin D shots”.
After carefully mining data for sales figures it turned out it doesn’t matter if you’re going to Central/Eastern Europe or Southeast Asia; both regions can get you drunk really cheap. Vietnam and Ukraine are the hands-down winners with beer at fifty nine cents per bottle. Other countries that address their clients’ needs with cheap and popular beer brands include: Cambodia, Czech Republic, China, Serbia, and Panama.
On the other hand, if you’re a heavy drinker, better avoid the Middle East. Not because alcohol is officially banned in many countries there (you can drink in designated places), but they have the most expensive beers in the world. In Iran one beer is equivalent to 13 bottles in Ukraine!
The infographic also calculated which customers pay most and least for beer every year based on consumption and beer price. If you drink much you pay much, right? Germans are the third heaviest beer drinkers in the world. As expected they’re one of the biggest spenders, too, shelling out $235 per year on the alcohol. Incidentally, if you find yourself in this country and thirsting for original brew, go check the Weltenburg Abbey in Bavaria, the oldest operating brewery today. In our recent article, we listed some more of these interesting facts about beer (and wine).
But just southeast of Germany, things are different in Romania. Talk about enjoying both worlds–Romanians are one of the heaviest beer drinkers; they’re also one of the least spenders on the alcohol. But we encourage you to drink moderately… and pay moderately, too.
