I've been all over Turkey in the last five years and I thought I would share this from my recent trip to Gumbet/Bodrum.
The Turks appear to be trying to rip people with their beer prices. I lost count of the bars and clubs where I was asked to pay 8, 9 or even 12 lira for a bottle of efes. I just laughed in their faces and told them that if they wanted my custom then they must drop the price. In the end the most that I paid was 5 lira for my beer.
REMEMBER IF YOU PAY MORE THAN 5 LIRA FOR EFES THEN YOU ARE BEING FLEECED. ASK ABOUT THE BEER PRICE WHEN THEY TRY TO DRAG YOU INTO THE BAR AND REFUSE TO PAY THE INFLATED PRICES . THEY WILL SOON LOWER THEM
TRY IT AND SEE.
THERE WERE A FEW BARS SELLING EFES FOR 4 LIRA A PINT WHICH I LIKED A LOT
