I recommend Red Horse to any of you that make it to the Philippines. That stuff is amazingly smooth and strong.

Beer Lao Dam - Black beer from Vientien, Laos is the best in SE Asia.  About $1 per bottle.  Load up at the duty free by the Mehkong bridges.

Plus, they have these great stickers with their symbol, a black panther with LBC Laos Beer Company, underneath it, so you can bring them back to Long Beach City and say things like 'dedicated to the LBC'.

To my eye, and taste buds, if I can see through a glass of beer, I ain't drinkin it. 

Opaque, so dark I cannot see out the other side. Guinness Extra Stout. ;-)

Most all Amerikan beer looks like someone whizzed in a glass. Spud's Suds.

Well VB is better than that Fosters shit that all foreigners think Aussies love, yet is considered so bad here the liquor stores stopped stocking it 20 years ago. Red Horse, lovely drop at 7% but reports of liver/kidney damage from those drinking too much because of the polluted waters they use to produce it.  My bro-in-law was in charge of the San Miguel afternoon shift and walked me through the plant one evening. In my opinion he had the best job in the world... testing the product off the line. He quit and was paid out 5 years before retirement age. Crazy!!

It is just cheap dishwater labeled beer as most so called German beers are today unless they are directly imported from Germany. I stick with Warsteiner for now. Germany has not yet gone to GMO syrup in brewing.

They Heinekein sold in the US now days is just cheap sugar water with hops, nothing like what is sold in Europe.

It is all pretty sketchy these days, mostly I drink champagne and once in awhile Italian wine but be aware the mafia dumped a lot of nuclear waster in certain areas of Italy.

I found that last sentence puzzling. But You do Need Another Beer.

I'm a wine-drinker myself. Beer = liquid 'bread' (you might even call it 'wonder bread').

Unfortunately, drinking it packs on the lbs., just like any bread.

How can Australians afford to spend the most money on beer in the world? 

Because we are an extremely wealthy country. I live in an oasis surrounded by public housing. There's a guy here who has appropriated a disability scooter (paid for by the taxpayer) but he doesn't have any problems walking. He's in his 20s and is just too lazy to walk. It's not even his scooter. 

But he uses the scooter to do beer runs every day or two. His entire existence is funded by the taxpayer and he can still afford to spend copious amounts of money on beer. Granted, he doesn't eat much, but that's what the local soup kitchen is for. Luckily for him, the soup kitchen and the bottleshop are within the range of the disability scooter.

Sometimes he does a ride share on the disability scooter. One sits with his legs on either side of the steering column, while the other is on the seat driving the thing. Often, the guy sitting down the bottom is drinking beer as they cruise down to the soup kitchen.

@mrpxsytin. It's bizarre, you could be writing about the UK. What is it about these Anglo countries that they seem to want to destroy themselves? I live in the boondocks in Spain and have never seen a mobility scooter or a fat person. And after a year, even the genuinely-trying to find work get their dole chopped off. They can starve on the streets for all the state cares.

 

This article doesn't make it clear whether they are talking about a beer from a supermarket or bar. In my part of Spain a litre bottle of Cruz Campo is about €1 in a store, and a 330 ml bottle in a bar is €1.50. In the bar you always get a free tapas thrown in - a couple of slices of ham or something.

A friend of a friend was recently bragging about how him and his housemate (both alcoholics) now survive on Social Security payments. One is supposedy so drunk he cannot look after himself so he gets the Disability Pension. The other is a little better in that he is capable of going down the road to get the daily casks of wine to keep themselves topped up, so he is now on a Carer's Pension looking after his mate.

Beer.

Don't get me going...

Made my first batch back in 1972, when it was still illegal to brew your own.

Ugly, but drinkable (and cheap!).

Best I ever made was a Pilsner from raw Maple Sap, dry, but oh so fruity.

Lost the time to make it.

Now I stick with Lasgunitas (Maximus), Arrogant Bastard, and McNeils Special Bitter.

So much beer, so little time.

I quit drinking a few years ago.  Every now and then I miss it -- like right now.

Speaking as a Canadian, I'm surprised as hell that we're not on the list for most expensive countries to have a beer.

Go to any bar in Downtown Toronto and a pint of Bud Light will set you back $6.  Go to a peeler-bar and it's $9.50 for a Budwieser.

24-case of beer is ridiculous here.  Average cost of a 2-4 is something like $42.  It's the big reason why I'll cross over to Lewiston, NY and pick up a 2-4 at Topps or Wegmans for $19 when it's on sale.  Sickening really when you think about how much tax we pay up here.  Fuck I hate socialism.  Fucking sucks!!!!!!!!!!

Personally, I like drinking Czech beer (on account of my Czech heritage).  Favorite is "Czechvar" which is actually the true Budwieser (look it up).

Yes it is expensive in those bars but just think of the rocket scientists you are able to mix with:)

The true Budweiser is actually German not Czech. That´s why it´s called Budweiser.

As an australian, those prices look about right - downtown that is. Go to a decades forgotten bowls club and you might get a pint of your fave for 5. Still cheaper to pay $35-50 for 24 of whatever. My favorite is Cooper's Pale Ale, about 42 a case.

 

You know what the unfortunate difference is? Wages. Our minimum wage makes that (the cheaper version) a viable expense, including savings. Most people that drink in the city, work in the city and get paid enough to drink in the city. The rest of us have watering holes that cater to our budget. I probably spend more than the average in a year, certainly on better beer than you'd find in the rest of the 'Priciest Beers' list.

 

Also, we're #2 for bottles/pp. Wages dude. That and mining is why Australia is where it is economically.

The graphics made me smile. Showing the Coliseum in Rome and linking it to Romanians. 

Here is a hint Rome is a city in Italy, Romania is a country in Eastern Europe.  

In Rome you get an execellent Expresso In Romania you get so-so beer

Another record for Australia, most spent on beer worldwide..were number one! I'd cheer but I'm a bit pissed at the moment.

Switzerland is never included on these things as they would always win?!

I paid $6 for a 2.5dl beer (plus an extra $2 deposit on the plastic glass) a coupla nights ago at a town festival. Usually in a bar it is $5 a beer, $10 a pint. Bottles, about $7 or $8 (which is why I brew my own Burton style IPA)

Cheers!
