    You obviously tried it when it had decent beer then.

    Like most of the pubs to the North of Euston Road it was a basic boozer. It was the early 70s so I'm pretty sure there was no real ale but the dreaded Watneys Red.
    This last week will have given an object lesson as to why places like this and micropubs without a proper cold room are such a bad idea.

    I have been in 13 pubs this week and only two had warm beer.They were both Camra GBG pubs. I asked for 4 ice cubes for my pint of Redwell -stout to make it drinkable.

    There I was in The Rake ,admiring their new colourful screen listing the beer selection,when I notice keg Cloudwater NW DIPA 9% listed at £6.70 a half ,or £13.40 a pint.

    It maybe an Imperial IPA but at that price I didn't partake.

    Definitely beyond the pale.

    "Being charged £130+ for a 20l keg by the distributor [means] we are always going to struggle to keep the price down..."

    £130+ for 20 litres works out at around £3.70 for a pint. So their "mark up" is £9.70 on top of that?

    There is £2.68 of VAT on that £13.40 (assuming I've calculated it correctly which I probably haven't). They've got their own brewery in Stratford, why don't they brew it themselves? I blame the tickers!!
    I went in a couple of Holt's pubs today, the mild was £2.22 and the bitter £2.28. One big gripe is that one of them had Doom Bore on. I didn't bother to ask how much it was.

    I was in the Rake last night and Cloudwater beer has sold out but they did have verdant/northern monk-noibu 5.5 at £9.00 a pint.Seemed a bargain to me. Had 2 halves of superbly conditioned cask beer at probably £4.50.
