How much a pint of beer costs in Latvia and Riga?
In bars and restaurants pint of beer costs about 2 Lats. That is about 2 British pounds or 3 Euros, or 4 US dollars. Note, that drinks in cities/villages outside Riga cost less! If going to rural areas, where there’s only two shops and one pub in town, cheap drinks paradise guaranteed. Don’t say I didn’t warn you..
If you buy beer in 0.5L bottles in shop planning to get monkey-face-drunk at home party, this will cost you cheaper. Price for bottle of beer (light or dark) is around 0.50 Lats, that is 0.50 GBP, or almost 1 Euro, or a bit more than one dollar.

I’m about to correct and add more prices, as they change with time. Latvia has some issues with inflation, prices on goods and services are constantly climbing.
