Top 10 most expensive beer countries

8. United Arab Emirates – £4.86

The populous, oil-drenched conglomerate of feudal kingdoms that is the UAE is unsurprisingly featured in our top 10 due the country’s strict islamic tradition, which forbids the drinking alcohol.

Thankfully, in efforts to bolster the global business approach of the country, alcohol still is permitted to be sold, albeit at a bit of a premium – and only in hotels or licensed nightclubs.

The law states that it’s illegal to be intoxicated in public, so it’s probably a good thing that the beer is so expensive!
