Miami Is the 13th Most Expensive City in the World to Buy Beer

Miami is a damn expensive place to live, but you can always take comfort in the abundance of craft beer in the city to help drown some of your money sorrows. As you'd expect — averaging $5 per pint in this town —even beer is considered pricey in the Magic City, ranked the 13th most expensive cityin the world for buying a cold brew.

This is according to GoEuro, a travel booking website for European trips, which compiled beer data from 75 cities around the globe. The site calculated prices of the five most commonly imported beers in the world as well as local brews. The rankings cover the first half of 2016 and are based on the 33-centiliter, or 11-ounce, bottle, which is the standard European size, andconsider factors such as supermarket and bar prices, annual consumption, and how much each person spends on average. GoEuro even included nonalcoholic beers for research in Abu Dhabi. 

Miami is a relatively inexpensive place to grab a brew compared to the number one city, Lausanne, Switzerland, at $9.51, followed by Hong Kong at $6.22 and Singapore at $5.75. Zurich comes in fourth at $5.69. Still, at 5 bucks, Miami is still above the average price of $3.50 for a pint.

Why is beer expensive in the 305? For one, our city has skyrocketing property values. Businesses in Wynwood pay up to tens of thousands of dollars in rent each month, which might partially explain the need for prices to reach the double digits for a pint of beer.
