I've walked past many a Young's or Fuller's house in recent years that are new to me but refuse to go in them.

    Me too. I used to travel up from Kent,ostensibly to visit a mad, elderly cousin in Wandsworth. Naturally much Ordinary and Winter Warmer was sampled.Fuller Smith and Turner were more recondite,but I eventually ventured further West for the delights of ESB. Somehow, things were simpler then!

    Just paid £2.55 for a 1/2 of a very average Trumans Runner in the Bishop, East Dulwich.

    £6.00 for a pint of Reunion Ales Talwar - a 4.5% cask ale all the way from Twickenham - in The Horseshoe, Hampstead. (I went for the marginally more acceptable Haresfoot Lock Keeper' - 4.0% and also on cask - a steal at just £5.50 a pint). Ugh!

    £11.20 for a pint and a G&T in https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/85153/ although I didn't note the actual price of the pint. Most expensive drink though, whilst not really comparable as it's not beer, was £36 for two cocktails in the Gong bar at the Shard.

    Went in http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/85095/ last night and noticed they had Wiper & True's Hard Shake at £10.50 per pint...

    Siren Craft Bourbon Milkshake 11.0% ABV, I paid £3.40 for a third on keykeg in the Nags Head Reading today, it was worth every penny, one of the most amazing beers I have ever tasted. Needless to say a 1/3 was good enough, any more would spell disaster.

    I read all the beer blogs and quite a few of the older bloggers think that craft brewers just stick any old shit in beer and sell it too us mugs.I have in the last 3 years had so many amazing but expensive beers. One of my fav brewers so if I see it around I will try it.(if I haven't already.)
