Good news for us Americans! While the cost of half a liter of beer (about a pint) may not be the lowest, people in the USA only have to work about 5-6 minutes to afford said beer. This is the lowest amount of work for any country according to a study by UBS. The average? 20 minutes. So don't feel too bad wasting that paycheck on a night out at the bar! As long as you're not in India. See the full chart below, via Magic Hat.
