yes, oslo is one of the most expensive cities in the world, and people often
complain about measure it using the price of beer. the alternative newspaper natt&dag has a weekly “beer barometer” (ølbarometer) which lists oslo’s cheapest beer places, but unfortunately not online. fear not, I can share with you oslopuls’ recent survey of 55 bars around the city, with prices ranging from 29 kroner (if you buy before 1 PM) up to 92.5 kroner (at the touristy place by the sea)–all for a half-litre of beer.
(1 USD = 5.5 kroner)
