The cheapest (and most expensive) cities to buy beer revealed

If you’re wondering where the cheapest city in the UK for beer is – and why wouldn’t you? – look no further than Liverpool, where it’s now been revealed the price of the average brewski is under half the cost of what Londoners pay.

The findings come with the release of the 2015 GoEuro Beer Price Index: factoring in a number of issues - average price for beer in a supermarket, average price in a bar (based on three different hotel chains), overall average price – the annual survey calculates the cheapest (and most expensive) cities for 33cl of beer worldwide, with Liverpool officially the best value major city in the whole of the UK.

Finishing 25th, just below Berlin and Dubrovnik, but slightly above Prague and Madrid, Liverpool was found to offer an average price of £1.70, with Leeds (£1.96) not too far behind in 32nd place, followed by Edinburgh (£2.04), the Scottish city finishing on 35th, just three places above Los Angeles if you were unsure just how jet-set this list is.

In the “No shit, Sherlock” stakes, London (£2.92) is positioned much further down the table in 63rd, sandwiched between other major continental metropolises Sydney and Rome – which as it happens aren’t too far off Abu Dhabi (£3.00), a nation which you’ll find ale a more valued commodity than oil.

Potential holidaymakers take note: finishing first and second for the cheapest beer were Krakow and Kiev (on £1.07 for a 33cl beer each), with Bratislava, Malaga and Delhi not too far behind. While Geneva (£4.08) is now the most expensive for beer, surpassing last year’s most pricey place for a drink, Oslo.

Pore (or indeed pour) over the findings in the graphic below. Go on, drink it in.
