    Market forces innit. They charge as much as they can get. Pride is astonishingly popular. Even in my nearest GBG pub you see more Pride going over the counter than anything else and that's despite an ever changing selection of usually local guests.

    That's £1.04 before vat, I find it hard to believe that brewers could and would sell bottled beer to Tesco for much less than this.

    Actually it's £1.00 before VAT and the duty on a 6% 500ml beer must be around 60p. The price for a single bottle is £1.97 so four for a fiver is a substantial reduction. I don't buy into the theory that they are selling them at a loss, but they probably only make a few pence per bottle. Four for a fiver is rare nowadays, I don't think I've seen it since last Xmas.

    £1.97 for a 500ml bottle is the equivalent of £2.24 a pint which isn't that different to what the cheapest Spoons charge!

    The cheapest item in Tesco that isn't just water is their own brand 4.8% premium lager which is £2.99 for 4x440ml cans. This is a disgusting concoction brewed by Tennents in Scotland.

    I went to the Wibbas Down in Wimbledon yesterday that makes most Spoons look like micro bars.
