According to Finder, the average price for a glass of about 570 ml of beer has increased over the years. This is not surprising when the Covid-19 pandemic has forced many restaurants and bars around the world to close. Consumers have gradually changed their habits by buying a variety of drinks in supermarkets or convenience stores.

Finder's report shows that cities in Africa have a wide range of drinks at the most affordable prices because consumption costs in the region are not too expensive.

Meanwhile, in big cities like Doha (Qatar), Oslo (Norway) or Dubai (United Arab Emirates), the price for a glass of beer is very high.

Here is the list of cities in the world with the cheapest price for a glass of beer:

1. Freetown, Sierra Leone
2. Antananarivo, Madagascar
3. Lagos, Nigeria
4. Yangon, Myanmar
5. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
6. Tashkent, Uzbekistan
7. Lome, Togo
8. Maseru, Lesotho
9. Lilongwe, Malawi
10. Dushanbe, Tajikistan

The 10 cities with the highest price for a glass of beer:
