The GoEuro Price Index series focus primarily on common expenditures for travellers, aiming to help people better gauge the difference in prices between places around the world. Research for the 2015 Beer Price Index combines data from 75 cities around the world, including the 5 most commonly imported beers as well as the main local beer. The results show a large difference in the price across continents and between countries.
Note: - The price of a beer bottle in a supermarket was calculated as the average cost of a 33cl bottle of several worldwide brands and a major local brand in a regular discount store. All prices were converted to USD using the Bloomberg exchange on June 12th 2015. - The price of a beer in a bar was calculated using the average price of local and imported 33cl draught beer in several major hotel chains worldwide. - Data for the average annual consumption per capita is from the World Health Organization. - Average annual spend per capita is calculated based on the World Health Organization and GoEuro Beer Price Index. - Where beers are sold in 12oz (35.5cl) varieties vs the European standard of 33cl prices were normalised to be equivalent to a 33cl bottle. Formula is: Normalised beer price = Average beer price in store * (33/35.5). - For Abu Dhabi non-alcoholic beers were included.
