    The Evening Star has a beer for 9.50 a pint. I stick to Hophead at 3.35
    What was this particular beer out of interest?

      A subsidised pint in my local costs $9 which in pounds is 5.55, don't think you have much to complain about.

      We're I drink before and after games does a loyalty card while any sport showen on TV screens makes your pint of Harveys about 3-37 if you remeber to get your card clipped. It all helps

      One doesn't have to endure a Wetherspoon (although some are okaaaaaay) to get a well priced pint. One of my favourite pubs do a decent IPA for 2.30. They also do a card that gives you 10% off during matches. That can make a difference in a round. That's about my usual quota on a pub night so a tenner does me fine.
      I have paid over and above for an exceptional beer but am not in the position to do so currently.
      Anyway my point is you don't have to sit indoors drinking tins or sit in a Wetherspoon, you just have to find a decent pub.
      Nearly.

      I'll pop in myself. To be fair a number of craft beers come in a silly prices for a pint but they're often north of 8% in alcohol, quite special and only drunk in halves. And The Evening Star always warn you if the price is silly.

      On my current contract I am on around $ 1730 a week before tax etc. which is about 1065 pounds, but I pay very heavy taxes as a result.
      Houses and cars are a pretty good price here compared to over there, but everything else is extortionate.

      Harvey's is ridiculously expensive.

      About 20% more than some comparable bitters to buy.
