I used to be able to get £1 pints in the students union not even 10 year ago...
Yeh but I bet it was “****”. By that I mean watered down/ with loads of fizz. ;)
Rage - See you’ve now got to that “Uncle Albert” stage of life reminiscing about the good old days of when things were cheaper - welcome to getting old.:p

Pints pre lock down - cask ale were generally about £4-5 in Central London.

I recall going to HK 7s more than 10 years ago and they were selling pints back then for £8. But mainly attended by corporate bankers and lawyers who didn’t care two hoots how much they were paying. Plus alcohol in HK is bloody expensive anyway.

It’s relevant to where you are for me. If I drink in brum then it’s £5+ a pint but in the local social clubs and rugby clubs it’s still under £4 a pint.

Gone beyond the €7 point in the centre of Dublin now. Ridiculous

Ale and rum are my general choices.

My usual ales are Abbot, Doom Bar (good session ale) and Wadworth 6X when I can get it. Rum, I usually go for Kraken or Dead Man's Fingers, as they are reliably available.

Bargain compared to Stockholm where we were last weekend. In the hotel we paid just shy of £20 for 2 draft beers of maybe 400 ml each. Bottle of Sancerre was around £67. No wonder they’re all so boringly grown up over there!
