    Default Lockdown 2

    My local pub has dropped its cask beer prices by 50p a pint, I saw on social media that selected 'Spoons were dropping to 99p a pint. A few breweries and on-line beer sellers have discounts already. Many local pubs shortened their cask range a week or two ago. Personally I think we're in for the long haul here, especially with a Government that seems to hate pubs.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Default It would be a crime not to!

    Although well replenished on a stretching walk on the Kent / Sussex / Surrey border, my intentions to have a quick half of something light at The Oxted Inn whilst waiting for my train disappeared when I spotted the 'all real ales 99p per pint' signs in anticipation of 'lockdown II', with a Jaipur clip visible on one of the sparsely populated pair of four-handpump banks...

    My local Spoons was selling real ale for 99p a pint yesterday. It would have been rude not to indulge!

    Had a mini-crawl around Dulwich this evening - the average price of a pint was comfortably north of £5.50. Why on earth didn't I just go down to my local Spoons?
