    I agree with Alesonly and Al 11000. Just do what you want to do and never mind what other people might be thinking.
    Couldn't agree more ... You have to get out there...

    I don't really drink at home that often, I would much rather go to the pub. Its a social thing.

    Do what you want and sod them all.

    I like to try craft beer (therefore I must be sophisticated) but have never noticed or thought that people look down on me as a drinker.I find that people tend to be quite friendly towards me even though I may have been drinking.I don't think binge drinking really applies to older drinkers even when that is in essence what we do. Just look at that picture of the 3 amigos in York.Frightning !!!

    The way I read it the question is aimed at the opprobrium heaped, with some justification, on the "late night economy" which has ruined town centres for more mature drinkers on weekend evenings, and that those going to the pub in the same way that they did twenty or thirty years ago are tarred with the same brush.

    I'm fine until I stop drinking beer, any beer, and hit the whisky.

    Regarding Real Ale being Craft etc: meh. I don't like either term. I prefer to call them what they are: Cask and Keg. Anyting else is just marketing, either by CAMRA or by hipsters.

    Totally agree 'craft' keg beer is overpriced.

    Not if you go here it isn't. All Red Squirrel cask or keg were £2.25 a pint last November. Even Spoons are a lot more expensive for their two "craft" keg offerings.

    That's cool. I'd be interested to know how much they are being charged for a keg and what their margins are. Could it have been a one off promo?

    I'd also love to ask some 'craft' brewers to justify their prices. Maybe it's the pubs that are adding the premium because they can, or maybe it's the brewer charging the pub too much. More than likely a bit of both.

    Ah i see that place is owned by Red Squirrel. Still, good of them to do it at those prices.
