No-one likes shelling out £8 on a pint, which is why the prospect of a cheap beer is so delightfully enticing.
It's the icing on the cake, so to speak - or the froth on a golden-hued goblet.
Just in time for our summer adventures, the experts over at Skyscanner have drawn together a hit list of the cities with the most bargainous beer prices in Europe.
Top of the list is one of our favourite boltholes, Budapest. In this home place of glorious architecture and thermal springs, a refreshing swig or two of the good stuff will set you back just £1.08.
Rather surprisingly, London also makes the edit. Although the average price of a pint here - £4 - is nearly four times what you'd shell out in Hungary, it's still cheap relative to other costs in the city (for example, meals out and hotels).
Anyone for an ice-cold beer in the sunshine?
Feast your eyes on the full list, below, along with bars that Skyscanner rates in each city. Hear that? It's the sweet sound of a weekend break calling...
