It's Your Round
And talking of cheap beer; if a pint of industrial fizz is your thing, then you should book a holiday to Tajikstan. Sure it’s got a poor human rights record and is some 3300 miles away, but the lager is cheap. 29p a pint cheap, in fact. Which is ten times cheaper than the average pint in the UK.
If a trip to central Asia doesn’t float your boat-and the buses from Manchester are pretty infrequent-then try Panama. There you’ll only pay 2p more at 31p a pint. Then there’s Bhutan (south Asia) at 36p and Burundi (Africa) at 37p.
However, the research by pintprice.com also reveals the places to avoid. Top of the list is Greenland where you can expect to pay £7.35 for your favourite tipple. And Norway and Qatar will both fleece you to the tune of £6.

Keen beer traveller Stewart Hoehnkem from Edinburgh summed it up: “Every time I return to the UK I end up crying into my beer as the price has rocketed again. Usually, I never pay more than £1 a pint when I’m abroad. I’ve never been to Tajikistan but now I’ve found out lager is just 29p a pint it is definitely next on my list.”
