American Cities with the Cheapest Beer

Embarking on a summer getaway and not enjoying a drink is like hitting a burger joint without ordering the fries. It might not be the primary reason you went, but it sure adds something to the experience.

Though we can’t deny that knocking back a cold beer or two on a hot day is about as relaxing as it gets, doing so can be hard on your wallet and waistline if you’re not armed with the right information. But fear not beer lovers, we’ve got your back! If you’re an avid Eat This, Not That! reader, you already know which beers are the best and worst picks for weight loss and you also know which light beers fared best in our taste test. But what you probably don’t know is which American cities are serving up the cheapest brews. Lucky for you, we do.

GoEuro, a travel price comparison website, recently released their 2015 Beer Price Index, based on the average price of brews from grocery stores and bars in 75 cities around the world. They standardized the serving size and converted the results into a single currency so they could fairly compare the results. Krakow, Poland, where the average brew costs a mere $1.66, turned out to be the best city in the world for beer lovers on a budget, while Geneva was found to be the most costly. A single beer in the Swiss city costs a whopping $6.32! Here’s how the U.S. cities in the study ranked:

38. Los Angeles

Average cost per beer: $3.24

46. Chicago

Average cost per beer: $3.56

49. Boston

Average cost per beer: $3.72

55. San Francisco

Average cost per beer: $3.97

69. Miami

Average cost per beer: $5.13

71. New York

Average cost per beer: $5.20
