I came across a joke You know you are a New Yorker when "You pay $5 without blinking for a beer that cost the bar 28 cents. "

As someone who doesn't drink beer, I've never paid attention to how much beer costs elsewhere. At a bar, not a supermarket. Anyone want to share?

Blueberry Hill is one of the most famous bars in St. Louis. Their menu lists beers ranging from $3.25 (although I wouldn't call any of those three 'beer', but flavored water) to $6.75 for some import bottles.

In a bar, a normal beer usually costs between € 2 and € 3 here (about US$ 2.80 to US$ 4.20) in the Netherlands. In the supermarket it probably costs about half or a little less than that.

well you asked the right guy. it depends on where you buy it. here at a restaurant/bar $2 is a cheap price. myself i buy high gravity beer for $2 at the convenience store. these can range from 8% alcohol to 12%. the one i usually buy is 10%. so for 2$ i get 24oz of 10% = a six pack of 12oz regular beers.

Germany: it's usually the cheapest drink in pubs at ca. 2.20€ ($3.00) for a 0.3 liter (10oz) glass and costs ~0,70€ ($0.90) per liter (1 quart) in the supermarket if you buy a box.

$.90/liter? i could go for a deal like that.
heck, the 1 liter bottles of iced tea, cheapest brand, on sale, are $.99 and they contain 0% alcohol.

I hardly ever drink, so I have no idea what a beer costs in a bar. In a restaurant, it can wildly range from about $3.50 for national dreck to much more expensive for local micro-brews. There's a heavy German influence in Central Texas so there are a lot of good micro-breweries.

jeanne, almost any convenience store in texas, or the entire us for that matter. supermarkets don't generally sell them though(single 24oz high alcohol %). the last time i went to a tavern here in Austin they had 16oz regular beer for $2, but that was a few years ago, also it was on 6th street which is nothing but beer joints so there was plenty of competition.

In Newcastle town centre its somewhere between £2.50 ($4) and £5 ($12) a pint / bottle (mostly larger) - but depends on where abouts you go.. There's a lot of pub's in the area it being a party town
In local bars around £1.50 to £2.50.

At SAM's Club nearby you can buy a pack of twenty-four 12 ounce bottles (I guess that's 3/4th of a pint each) of Budweiser for $20. (SAM's Club is not a place of entertainment; it's a place to buy large quantities of consumables at discount prices.)

On the Space Shuttle I would estimate a single beer to cost anywhere from ten thousand to a million dollars.

On vacation, I tend to always try out the local beer. And if possible, try a dark beer (as light ones tastes like water ... ). On Easter Island, I ordered a negra chilean beer that was really really good. Well, except for the 4,500 peso (around $9) price tag.


And of course, people go to Easter Island for the Moai -- and not for beer...

You've probably meant "on the orbit". (Or the prices in the L. A. Museum are out of whack...)

A Heineken in Orlando usually runs me $5 to $6 at bars and restaurants. At nightclubs, it's about $7 - $8.

Hope that helps.

Which Newcastle? Northumberland or Staffordshire? (Or even Pembrokeshire)
In local bars around £1.50 to £2.50.

I suppose the £1.50 is in a Sam Smith’s house; you can usually barely get a half for that price.

Huh, I didn't know there was more than one. I've been to the Staffordshire one (i.e., under-Lyme), and now I'm sort of distressed to learn that the Newcastle of Sting and Newcastle Brown Ale (i.e., upon-Tyne) is a totally different place. Such is life. Each day a bit wiser and a bit sadder. Fortunately cheap beer cures both those afflictions.

Hawey mun, do we think it is safe to introduce somebody who has only been to the Potteries to Geordies?
