Beer Paradise: Vietnamese Beer Ranked Cheapest in the World

Thrillist, using crowd-sourced data from cost of living site, Numbeo, just published a list of the countries with the world’s cheapest beer. Somewhat surprisingly, our fair Vietnam took the crown with the average beer priced at $0.76. But things make a bit more sense when you realize that notoriously cheap bia hoi is included in the math.

Here’s what they said about Vietnam’s beer scene:

“[You’ll] Almost assuredly [drink] bia hoi, on ice. While $0.76 a pint is the overall average price for beer in Vietnam, it's pretty common to find a 12oz glass of this 3% ABV pale lager for as little as $0.20 cents. For the bottled alternative, go with the Bia Hà Nôi.”

Or Saigon Red or 333…

Head over to Thrillist to see the other countries on the list and methodology used for the rankings.
