    Any boozers from Greenland would soon repay their air fare here, being able to buy 25 pints + 10p change for the price of one (ice cold?) beer back home!

    That's an outrageous price in Djibouti. I wonder if they run beer tours to the Congo.

    The thing is, I suspect £7.35 is for a bog standard pint. Imagine if they open a craft beer joint in Nuuk...

    We went into the bar in the last hotel we stayed in while in Vancouver, and there was no beer menu. We had a choice of a light or dark ale and chose a couple of dark ales. I have to admit they were the best beers we had while in Canada. I had to ask for details and was told Howe Sound Brewery Stout 5.6%.

    Well the price. They were $9 each. The bill came and it showed with tax and service charge it was a total of $28.34. I thought that was expensive but what I didn't realise till we got home was they added a tip despite the service charge and although my chitty showed $28.34 the money card charge was $32.59. Deffo my most expensive pint!!!

    Ah, the delights and confusion of buying anything in North America Gill. The only way is to do what you did, just accept it and dont try to understand it !

    Most expensive I've had was a £5 half of a triple IPA from California at an American beer festival. Well worth it as it opened my eyes to interesting beer and American-influenced styles. It was 10% so not quite as bad as it might seem if you consider price per unit.

    Wetherspoons pubs in my area have just reduced the price of guest ales to £1.99 per pint. Well done JDW
