If beer drinking is a priority for you on your travels (and really, who could blame you if it is?), there are certain countries in the world that offer better value than others. Long gone are your college days when you traveled to the nearest fraternity house for a cheap drink. How about traveling to, say, Vietnam instead?

While war-torn Ukraine may not be your first choice of destination at the moment, a typical beer at a restaurant costs about 98 cents, making it the cheapest in the world, according to some sources. Yet its neighboring Eastern and Central European countries also offer plenty of cheap-beer competition.

Ultimately, both Eastern European and Southeast Asian countries rank well on our list of cheapest countries for beer, which is fortunate for you, traveler, given they're also mostly full of up-and-coming travel hotspots.

There are places beer lovers should avoid, though. In Norway, the average beer at a restaurant costs the equivalent of $11.33 (ouch). And in many traditionally Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa, when alcohol isn't outright banned, beer prices creep toward $10.

Want to know where you should go to maximize your beer-for-money ratio? We've got you covered.
