What are you paying for your tipple?

Mine is £1-90 for Barnsley bitter.

On the same bar £1-80 if you like mild (which I don’t), £2-00 Oakwell larger and £2-10 Acorn larger (strong).
Not bad for a city centre pub. Nottingham.

Sod it I’m off to the pub

Spend a few more years in this trade and you’ll be on the real stuff.

Robinson’s (Stockport) in a good pint if you can find a landlord that can keep it.

It varies. A pint of Becks in the pub round the corner is £3.10, but in the bar opposite it's about £3.40 a pint.
Down town a pint of Tiger will set you back £3.95.

The last time I drank beer in the UK it was Theakstons Peculiar, it's a name I won't forget in a hurry but I can't remember how much it cost. The pub had done away with the niceties such as decor of any type and beer serving taps, they took it directly from the barrel using the glass. They even got upset when I asked for a new glass when I ordered my new one. I drank about six of the things, it was hard work to get them down and I felt terrible for two days afterwards.
