    Also in Norway, one of the pubs we use when we're in Stavanger is The Cardinal: this pub's beer list http://www.cardinal.no/Olliste/Olliste.html includes

    OLA DUBH 40 ÅR

    at a staggering £43 a pint.

    Due to a misunderstanding, one of my colleagues (from Darlington) thought that was the cost of the round for 6 people so was happy to get out his credit card. Imagine how amusing it was when realisation dawned...

    Was in the Grapes in Oxford on saturday afternoon, recently taken over by Bath Ales, and noticed they had a strong IPA on keg. It was called something 69 (can't recall the full title but the 69 indicated the strength - 6.9%). I think it must be a beer they 'produce' (note I don't use the word brew for keg) themselves.
    An eye-watering £5.95 a pint !
    I think not.

    Was in the Library in Islington (Highbury Corner end) last week, a keg only place so thought I'd try something different. Opted for a pint of Leffe Blonde. £5.30!

    Called in here Cross Keys on Friday.

    £3.95 for a pint of Magic Rock High Wire. It's not even in the city centre. Thieving sods.

    £5.50 for a pint of "craft" Thornbridge Jaipur IPA drunk here last month nearly had me choking on it.

    I am currently on the wagon, have been since early August. I popped in on a social visit to my new local, had half a diet cola, bloody £1.65 which is same price per pint as HSB

    Last soft drink I buy in a pub, once off wagon it is HSB and bu66er the beer duty, George can have it rather than Fuller's rip off colas
    I drink to make others more interesting

    It really makes my blood boil when they openly pour it from a 17p supermarket 2 litre saver bottle (well it was when Ray had it once) then charge the earth for it.
    Alcohol doesn't solve problems .... but then again, neither does milk.
