Having recently travelled to Spain and visiting Barcelona, here are my remarks on local beer prices.
In the tapas and restaurants of the main tourist attention street, La Rambla (Barcelona) the beer prices are high – 0,5 l cost almost 5 euros and 1 liter is a little below 10 euros.
Smaller beers cost 2,5 – 4 euros.
Btw. large 1 liter beers should be considered an exception in Spanish pubs (they call their pubs tapas). Very tiny beer bottles (0,25 l) are much more common. So, better order two at once!
Popular beer brands are San Miguel, Estrella and Amstel.
This is another post regarding the cost of life in European Union. At the bottom of the page is a table of price levels of food and non-alcoholic beverages in EU. Value of 100 means the average of 27 EU member states. Table is based on Eurostat data (year 2008).
As we know, the prices are the best, if you buy in bulk. That applies to car horsepowers as well, especially in USA.
Let’s settle this and find out how much more costs BMW-s in Europe, their origin. Taken the BMW 3-series saloon, below is a calculation of the cost of 1 horsepower. Cost per horsepower is a suitable metric, because US and EU models have different engines.
Which countries are cheap to party while travelling in Europe? And which burn the hole in your pocket?
