While everyone is wringing their hands over inflation, worrying about the cost of groceries, rental cars and lumber, what about the important stuff: the price of beer?
Back in 1952, a pint of beer cost 65 cents. If that sounds cheap, consider that equaled about $5.93 in today’s dollars.
Personal finance site Finder, which has a crew of about 175 in 10 countries and claims to drink 800 beers a week (averaging out to about 4.6 pints each) compared the cost of a pint of beer in the most populated cities in 177 countries, using data from cost-of-living sites Expatistan and Numbeo for Nov. 29, 2017. Prices are based on a half-liter of domestic beer in a restaurant, and averaged between the two cost-of-living sites. We checked it against current prices and exchange rates, which account for some variation.
