in Uncategorized by

As the Fourth of July quickly approaches, many are turning their thoughts to a favorite staple of Independence Day celebrations nationwide — beer.

For beer lovers – often referred to as “hop heads”— who also like to travel, there is good news: they can find amazingly cheap beer in some parts of the world.

New infographics from and Ruby Media Corporation will help travelers choose the country where you can find the most inexpensive brews.

It does not matter if you go to Eastern Europe or Southeast Asia, both Vietnam and Ukraine have the best values in beer, as cheap as fifty-nine cents per bottle. Other places for a cheap beer buzz include Cambodia, Czech Republic, China, Serbia, and Panama.

The worst places for cheap beer are in the Middle East. Not only is alcohol banned in many countries — while drinking is permitted in a few designated spots — but the prices on average are the highest on the planet. For example, a single bottle beer in Iran can cost the same as 13 bottles in Ukraine!

The infographics compare countries with the highest and lowest prices for beer, based on yearly consumption and beer price:
