The Polish and Ukrainian cities topped the list for the cheapest beer in the world, sprinting ahead of Dublin - which placed 54th with an average bottle (33cl) costing €5.73.

Bratislava in Slovakia was the third cheapest country in which to order a bottle of beer, while Malaga, Delhi and Ho Chi Minh City completed the top six.

Asian cities including Bangkok, Bali and Manila were also found to be cost efficient when it came to a few scoops, with the average bottle in Thailand’s capital costing €2.84.
