Whether you’re sipping a kölsch in Germany or a Heineken in Hong Kong, there are a number of factors that can influence how much your beverage will cost.

Cost of living is certainly a primary factor, but taxes, type of establishment, type of beer (craft beer vs macro brew), and local tastes will also affect the price.
Analysts at Deutsche Bank recently gathered critical data on how much a pint of beer costs in various major cities around the world.
Many of the cities that topped the price list have a higher cost of living, and it’s no surprise to see Singapore and Oslo rank near the top. Dubai is a unique case.
