    ....where you are?

    Just thought it would interesting and kinda fun. How much is a 330ml or 12oz bottle of local brew at the bar nearest your home?

    In order to get some perspective, let's convert to a common currency. I suggest Indian Rupees.


    Brighton, UK - 4.65 GB Pounds / 400 Rupees

    In Kalgoorlie, a pint of Little Creatures IPA in a pub is 14 bucks, or 680 rupees. Its pretty much the dearest pub tap beer I have found in Australia. Prices vary a lot from regional areas to cities and state by state. NSW has many clubs with favourable treatment under the liquor laws where a schooner is much cheaper than that, and a little cheaper than the same schooner in a pub. Take aways and happy hours different again.

    I can get it cheaper in the Conservative club, but I don't hate myself that much.

    That's like 9 quid a pint! No wonder there's so many diggers in London!

    Including the tip, a 12 oz. bottle of quality suds is $5, Less if you buy a 6 pack. Craft beers will be higher, obviously. College student swill is cheaper.

    Here in North Georgia, it depends on the beer and where you go.

    A Budweiser at the American Legion will set you back all of $2.75/189 Rupees

    A Terrapin Hopsecutioner will set you back $7+/531R at a local fake Irish pub.

    A bottle of local beer in Wisconsin, something like a New Glarus Spotted Cow, usually runs about $3 or so.

    Closest big brewery to me Anhieser Busch, Budweiser= bout 4bux apiece in a bar. Tons of great microbrews in California though, prices are a bit higher. Beer is relatively cheap here.

    In Brighton I drink Pravha lager. In the Welly it's 4.70 GBP BUT in the Eddy just up the road they have Happy Hour all weekdays up till 7 PM where it's 3.85 GBP or 332 Rupees.

    At home here just outside Brighton I drink Kronenburg lager in the British Legion and it's 3.70 GBP a pint or 320 Rupees. A shot of the house Scotch in the Legion is 3.40 GBP (293 Rupees).

    I'm an old guy. When I first moved to London, a half pint in the Muswell Hill pub was 17 1/2p or 15 Rupees. Working man's prices.

    I went out and had a a craft beer with a friend. Not pints, maybe a half litre? Cost me $22 Canadian with the tip, 1 161 Rupees.

    A officially licensed Heineken is exactly one buck. The real thing is 2 bucks I think... Unfortunately, I stopped drinking 8 years ago.

    Here in Seattle, a "micro"-brew draught will run you about $8+. For one beer.
    Washington State, King County, Seattle have intensely regressive tax policies. Seattle used to be a working class city, now it's playground for the rich. Everybody is getting priced out in a multitude of ways, especially rent (which also drives up beer prices).
    Just one more reason I drink at home. For 2 beers at a bar, I can have 12 at home and those will last me all week.
    With more time for guitar as a bonus.

    I'd say beer starts around $4 for the cheapest.
