Maybe UK Pub-goers are starting to live a sober, no-alcohol lifestyle?

Liberals have assured me that higher taxes do not affect commerce. Nor do rich people ever flee an area due to taxes. Ever.

Conservatives have assured me that a trickle down, don't-tax-the-rich economy always creates jobs, and a wonderful economy for all. Always.

How much is a pint in the UK nowadays?  Do they have the same "cheap domestic, domestic, premium domestic, import" pricing structure as the US?

Have taxes been increasing for each of the last 8 years?

You realize that you making a separate point does not negate the point made by Nemo's Brother, right?

I'm using one bullshiat, dumb-ass argument against another. I think it's perfectly relevant.

Price for the standard InBev rubbish depends on how "upscale" the place is rather than what the beer is. A real pub with proper beer on the pumps will price depending on how much the beer is.

It tends to be a 50p premium on real beer per pint over Stella/fosters/carlsburg etc. round this neck of the woods it's £2.50 per pint of Stella in a pub and £3 for a real beer.

Conversion rates say that's close to what I see in most bars around here. How much does it cost to buy retail?

Funny, that's about the same time they banned smoking in the pubs.

A dead thread. Libs dare not tread here.

Round here it's about £4 a pint of premium lager (Peroni). $6.28. You can get 4x330ml bottles for £5 ($7.85).

Peroni is probably not the best example though. Carlsberg is probably the most common round my way and even that's £3.50 a pint at my local. You can get 4x500ml cans for £4.00 at a supermarket, sometimes 8 cans if they've got a deal on.
