The 10 cheapest cities in the world for a pint of beer in 2019

Not only does Vietnam have a fast-growing brewing industry, it is also one of the cheapest places to buy a pint, according to new research.

Vietnam, Uganda, Tanzania and Ghana are home to the cheapest cities in the world for a pint at the bar, according to a city living index published by international shipping company Pack & Send.

The company gathered data from consumer comparison site Expatisan, which collates costs of everyday amenities such as rent and drinks for cities around the world using user entries, before calculating an average.

The results showed that, perhaps unsurprisingly, the cheapest cities for beer can be found in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.

In fact, two cities in Vietnam made it into the top spots.

The market for beer in Vietnam is one of the largest in Asia and craft brewing in the region is growing exponentially.

Vietnam produced 3.78 billion litres of beer in 2016, up from 9.3% in 2015 and from 40.7% in 2010. Its per capita beer consumption is about 42 litres, behind South Korea and Japan, based on a 2014 report by Japanese drinks giant Kirin.

In addition to domestic production, imports of non-alcoholic and low alcohol beer are also increasing, mainly from Germany and Japan. In fact last year, Saigon binh Tay Beer (Sabibeco), an affiliate of the country’s biggest brewery Sabeco, announced plans to to quintuple the production of its ‘Sagota’ low-alcohol beer by 2025.

Meanwhile, European destinations Prague and Budapest also make the top 10, proving their enduring popularity for British stag weekends remains well-founded.
