The photo of a six pack of “Imperial” talls in the United States for US$3.99 has gone viral on the social media.

Ironically, the same can of beer is almost ¢1.000 colones, that is ¢6.000 colones for a six pack in Costa Rica for a beer produced in Costa Rica.

To be fair, the beer sold in Costa Rica includes the tax, in the U.S. it does not.

One commentator on the social media suggested the high prices in Costa Rica is to reduce drunk driving in the country, making the beer expensive means less drinking by. “Imagine if they were cheap,” says the commentator.
