Croatia, despite its very low average wage rate, does not fare too badly, with locals on  minimum wage able to buy 212 beers a month according to the map.  Croatia was well ahead of its neighbours Bosnia and Herzegovina (167) and Serbia (186). Belgium, thanks to a healthy minimum wage and affordable beer prices tops the list, with locals affording 1,028 beers.  The UK, Ireland and Germany, big beer drinking nations, were all above Croatia with 374, 333 and 521 respectively. Georgia bought up the rear, with the minimum wage affording them 36 beers a month. (adilu)
