This is very important information to all of us that like and drink beer.
How much does a beer cost is one of the most common questions we get asked.
It costs about US 1.67 for a cold small Presidente (33cl or 12oz) in August 2017.
Presidente is the major beer brand here and market leader. Make sure to try Bohemia Especial that is an excellent beer and the favorite of the Dominicantravel team. Hence the photo...
Beer Pricing Table:
The prices presented below are for cold beer bought in a Colmado or Colmadón (Dominican for Bodega) which is the local corner store (prices may vary slightly depending on the area and place).

You know that beeronomics or beeronomix is a very interesting phenomena, if you know the cost of a beer you can pretty much relate that to the general cost of other things in a country. You can use this method to understand the prices and rates when you travel, here is an example:
If a beer cost fifty pesos or one dollar (unit or euro) in a working man's colmado, bar or bodega, and if a breakfast costs 150 pesos or 3 dollars or 3 units, a newspaper should be around 25 pesos. You can apply that and understand how things are priced in that country. You can actually use beer as a comparative tool as if it was hard currency.
The most popular beer in the Dominican Republic is Presidente. Bohemia beer, from the same brewery, is gaining a lot of popularity.
