Depending on where you live, The Economist outlines how long you have to work to pay for One Beer! In the U.S. it’s about 5-mins on average, but be sure to check out the rest on the Economist:

At the bottom of the pint glass, low wages and high taxes mean that boozers in India must toil for nearly an hour before they have earned enough to quench their thirst.
