World's Cheapest Beer

Food and beverage websites argue about the best beers in the world, and we sometimes see a brew hailed as the most expensive in the world. Have you ever wondered which is the cheapest beer in the world?
Bia Hoi, most commonly found in Hanoi, is the most budget-friendly brew on the planet. Commonly described as having the appearance and flavor of Bud Light (go figure), Bia Hoi can be found for 3,000 VND per 12 oz. glass, which is the equivalent of about 16 US cents.

Gullible tourists and Vietnamese hobos seeking the beverage, need look no further than the ‘Bai Hoi’ or ‘Fresh Beer’ signs scattered throughout the city. Fresh beer is actually Bai Hoi’s English translation, and it is indeed brewed fresh daily — presumably in someone’s bathtub.

There's no definitive word yet on whether it is worth the price. Link -via the Presurfer

Update 12/18/10 by Alex: Roger Wade wrote the original blog post on Bia Hanoi being the world's cheapest beer. Thanks Roger!

as Americans seem to be constantly looking for ways to do things cheaper and cheaper you think 16 cent beer would be a wonderful thing.
