At over 11 shekels to pop the cap of a 1/3 liter bottle, Israel’s “City That Never Sleeps” is a kinda’ pricey place to catch a beer buzz. In fact, Tel Aviv comes out at a dubious 4th place in major cities worldwide, according to a new British survey.

What’s more, at NIS 11.15 ($3.18), the cost of kicking back with a brewski on Tel Aviv’s Mediterranean shore doubled within a decade, according to Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot.

While Tel Aviv is cheaper than Oslo’s NIS 16.68 and Tokyo’s NIS 14.32, the “White City” comes out just over a shekel more than London at 9.99, according to the Go Euro blog, which based its rates on the British pound.

“We have in Israel a cadre of passionate brewmasters who use only premium ingredients and offer a range of style and flavors,” said Hertz, whose firm is a big local supplier of beer-making equipment and ingredients.

And now, according to Time Out Israel, no less than “17 licensed micro-breweries, including those started by native Israelis, produce over 100 labels.”
