Certain countries drink more beer than others -- and are willing to pay up to enjoy it. According to findings from FinancesOnline.com, the U.S. ranks among the top ten countries that spend the most on beer with each person spending about $356 to imbibe each year. But the countries that spend even more include Finland, Ireland and Australia, where the average person spends nearly $748 on beer every year. Perhaps that's because Australia ranks among the ten countries with the priciest beers, at $4.45 for a half-liter of domestic. Beer fanatics may want to consider a trip to Asia or Central and Eastern Europe, where you can find some of the cheapest domestic beers around the globe. TheStreet's Brittany Umar reports.
