    I hate this trend towards 330ml bottles & tins. It's all very well that in a pub a pint of ale is more or less the same price as lager, but in an off licence you have to compete with tins of lager at 70p. That is the reality. If you're drinking cheapo beer all night and only allowing yourself one 'expensive' beer in a session it better come close to filling a fucking pint glass. Just when independent breweries are doing well for themselves they decide to alienate the penny pinchers.

    best thing to buy in wetherspoons is this https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/oakham...il-ipa/149716/ costs about £3 at the moment. i dont trust their pints in there.

    Northern Star Mocha Porter. Presuming the rest of Northern Monk is pretty good too, but hellishly expensive, at least in the shop I went into the other day.

    you have to adapt to the new prices. expect to pay about £2.50 for a 330ml can. about £3.50 for a bottle. about £6 for a pint. it's just what it costs. no point complaining. i can afford it and i dont even have a job so i doubt its much of a stretch for you.

    No point complaining about anything really, but we still have to do it to keep sane. Cost was about £8 though for a 500ml can, dunno what that was about. Can was pretty, I guess.

    ok fair enough thats a whole different scale. most northern monk stuff is about £2.30 for 330ml... in my corner shop anyway. i guess the cost of the ingredients bumped up the price on that one.

    Yeah, it was a specialist shop (apparently voted the best in the UK or something) - nice place but I stuck with the £3 beers

    It's two shops actually, owned by the same people, both in Brum - Cotteridge Wines and Stirchley Wines and Beer. Of course on their websites there's loads of people going on about how the best shop is *actually* in Coventry, NW London or wherever. I'm not an expert, but there's a massive range of beers....

    I'm not 100% sold on craft beers, but there are a few I really like and it's better than Stella (usually, not always - sometimes only Stella will do)

    All those hops will put bitch tits on your dad bod.

    Next big thing in beer will be gruit. YHIHF.

    https://www.craftbeer.com/craft-beer...er-before-hops

    “It is important to keep in mind the properties of gruit ale: it is highly intoxicating – narcotic, aphrodisiacal, and psychotropic when consumed in sufficient quantities,” Buhner explains. “The hopped ale that took its place is quite different.”

    The perfect atavist brexit beer.

    Can anyone else here that fucking dog barking incessantly? Cannot get to sleep.

    DEAR BEER
    We put hipster brews to the test to see which are worth your hard-earned cash

    We visited London locals to buy ten more ludicrously priced beers and drinkers give their verdict and a mark out of five for each one
