I usually only drink Apfelkorn and beer Apfelkorn is €8,99 in Holland (0,75 liter bottle), but I usually get it in Germany for €6,49 Beer is about €12,50 for a crate of 24 x 0,33 litre bottles. In the pub beer is about €2,- for a glass of 0,2(5) litres...

And yeah, I usually drink at home, or at least mostly =p

I pretty much stick with rum. Cheap rum, like a proper pirate.

Bacardi is ~$14 for 750ml. 6 pack of whatever beer sounds good is about $12. Whiskey (spacing the name) is about $30. I don't get it nearly as often because of the price.

I have yet to drink out.

I'm cheap, so I'll generally get a 8-15 dollar case of beer, preferably from a smaller brewery or a local one that I like supporting (like Westbrook here in SC). On the rare occasion I buy a wine, I probably spend $25 at most. Not a big fan, and even then go for white sweet wines (the wimpiest of wines), unless I need red for cooking.

Don't buy anything stronger much often, aside from some sake now and then when I'm feeling exotic. I like tarusake, which is brewed in wood and has spicy flavor. I don't think a medium-ish sized bottle of that would go for much more than wine.

Rikupsoni;5632536 Wow, that's really cheap. But probably has got to do more with the drinking culture, when beer and wine are used more as lunch drinks. Here, in some other countries, we're only supposed to use beer for getting drunk instead of a food drink.

Seen some graphs for Oktoberfest beer prices though, where the prices seems to go up a lot every year.

Well, those are supermarket prices. A 0,5l beer in a restaurant will cost you more like 3,5€. Which is still relatively cheap for European standards. A lack of a government monopoly like in Scandinavia helps with that I guess, the beer-drinking culture probably does as well. Most of the beer I drink is from ordering them while eating out.

Oktoberfest beer prices are through the roof - that event is very popular, there is a limited quantity of sellers and the beer they sell is of high quality.

The Czech Republic is a good place for beer fans. You can get great beer for 1/3 of what you have to pay in Germany. Plus, the ambience (thinking of Prague) is very nice - those cellar-pubs are great.

I'm not very picky when it comes to liquor my favorites being kettle one vodka and sazarac cinnamon whiskey both about 35 us dollars. But as I mentioned in the other thread I am much more passionate about beer I could really talk about it for hours ha.

I've been relatively low on cash lately so while I drink less often these days, I tend to spend a little more on quality to make up for the absence of punishment for my liver. I've got weaknesses for Irish whiskey, bourbon and beer and for the first two I stick to the brands I know and have grown accustomed to, Jameson Irish whiskey and Knob Creek bourbon. 750ml bottles of Jameson go for about $29 CDN and the Knob Creek for roughly $45 CDN.

As for beer, when I have the money I like to pick up a 24-pack of Mill Street Stock Ale which runs for $44. Mill Street also makes a nice Organic beer that is more of a light beer (4.2% abv) that runs for maybe a dollar more for the 24-pack. When less set on cash I just pick up tallboy cans of Lowenbrau or Carlsberg which as singles go for $2.25 and $2.35 CDN each. If I'm out at the bars/pubs I stick to either pints of Guinness, or doubles or triples of Jameson on the rocks (which I'll nurse for a longer period because they're overpriced like crazy at bars).

so many people will like to go towards the costlier brands.
