    Personally, I think Beamish is a much better drink, anyway.

    So do I, it's easily my favourite of the three. I have a vague recollection of Guinness having a go at Spoons way back because they thought they were selling it too cheap. I thought there was a law againts companies dictating to retailers the price they should sell their products.

    I wonder if they'll be selling the wonderful Smithwick's, one of the poorest beers I've ever tried.

    Ah, yes. Makes John Smith's Smoothflow look like Kirkstall Dissolution IPA.

    Here's a thought, why not up the prices after midnight to cover the policing levy?
    I drink to make others more interesting

    This is probably the thin end of the wedge,

    The coppers are talking about doing this in Nottingham,proper drinking pubs like Langtrys who stay open to 12.30 on a weekend will no doubt close at 12.00 to avoid to penalty payment.
    Once the coppers get their teeth into this the hours will gradually come down,so publicans will have to pay after 10.00 for example.

    I do think we are living a police state,things will only get worse for drinkers.

    End of rant

    PS ,First one for quite a while

    The easy answer to this problem would be for the councils to change the wording of the document that apply's the levy. It should be changed to include only licensed premises with live entertainment or Music like night clubs strip clubs casinos Ect and clubs where people have to pay to enter. Not quirt Pubs & restaurants selling food & alcohol.
