Beer drinkers of America, rest easy.

Out of 150 countries studied, it takes the least amount of time to earn a beer in the United States, according to analysts at Swiss bank UBS.

They determined it takes Americans just five minutes on the job to earn a beer.

That equals 96 beers over an eight-hour workday -- or 480 beers over a 40-hour workweek.

The analysis looked at median hourly wages and average beer prices at retail outlets like grocery stores or liquor stores -- not prices at bars.

On average, it takes a typical worker of the world 20 minutes to earn a beer.
