Infographic: The Price of Beer Around the World & Best Beers of Latin America
The beers of Latin America have been satisfying locals for years, and they’re increasingly becoming favorites outside of their home countries, thanks to the increased number of exports abroad, and the public’s greater appreciation for brews from around the world.
For travelers looking to get the most beer for their buck during that next Latin America vacation or business trip, a recent infographic (below) from FinancesOnline.com showcases the price of beer around the world. Interestingly, Panama is the only Latin America nation to rank in the list of the 10 countries with the cheapest beer. Both Panama and Mexico ranked in the top 10 list for nations where people spend the least money on beer per person annually.

The good news for penny-pinching brew aficionados is that no Latin American nation appears on the list of priciest beers. And if you’re looking for quantity, Venezuela ranked as the Latin American nation with the highest beer consumption per person; it’s no surprise that Venezuelans also spend the most on beer.
When it comes to the most popular Latin American beers on an international scale, the survey shows that the top seller globally is Corona Extra, from Mexico, with Brazil‘s Brahma not far behind.
