erm,... Chang Beer i bought only for 40 Baht and Singha for only 55 - 60 Baht in Thailand......
For Singapore, it is between S$6-S$9 for Carlsberg,Guiness & Chang Beer....if not mistaken....
Err....in Japan, Chang Beer & Singha which can be found in most Thai Restaurants costs about 200Baht...about 800++Yen.......
So Tuna, i dont think these countries can beat Malaysia too

Here in greater Monteral, the prices at the local Irish pub are about:

  • $4 to $5 CDN for a bottle of Canadian/American beer (2 for 1 during Happy Hour)
  • About $7 to $8 CDN for a pint Guiness or other imports (less if it's draft)
  • And about $8 to $10 CDN for a glass of whisky (don't know about the bottle)

I've noticed that the price of mixed drinks has been going up lately, plus posh clubs are charging rediculous amounts. My sis and I were invited to a terrace party at a schmoozy hotel in Old Montreal, and they charged us $11 for a glass of sangria (and the girl wanted to take the change from $20 for her tip!!!).

Hi,

In India, local beers come for around USD 0.50 for a pint at stores. At pubs/bars, it can be around USD 1-2. The imported beers (Bud/heineken/etc) can be had for around USD 3 to USD 4 for a pint in bars/pubs.

So I guess even India's not getting to the 2nd spot any time soon.

Rumours says Malaysia rank the second most expensive priced alco after Norway..Is this true???
If it is , i am very dissapointed
I need to know...How you did paid for your drink?
Average price in Kuala Lumpur would be :-

In a pub ( non happy hour )

Pint of lager ( Carslberg )- USD 7
Pint of Stout (Guinness) - USD 8.5
Bottle of Whiskey ( black label) - USD 90

Clubs would be more expensive of course.....

I was at a pub near Jalan Alor (near the backpackers place at Bukit Bintang) earlier this year with another TP member (Steff). The price for a pint of lager was about MYR14 (USD4).

  • As low as MYR 3.50 (USD 1) per 325ml can in supermarket during sale period.
  • MYR 6 - 9 (USD 1.75 - 2.60) per 325ml can in a 24-hour convenience store.

If you have to pay for it, it's too expensive.

James must be talking about that great Australian tradition I fell in love with down under: "toss the boss" Ah, wednesdays at the Palace in Coogee and betting heads or tails on a couple of pitchers of beer. If you won the toss, beer was free. If you 'lost', you pay the regular price. Either way, you can't really lose
