I see all these 24oz designer beers in cool bottles at the supermarket... I want to try them, but they like 10.99 to 12.00 a piece.... I could buy a 6pack, or even a 12 pack for that.

Gee, we eliminated competition in the beer industry by allowing all the companies to merge, and now they want to charge more? Who could have possibly seen this coming?

Noooo.
Damn you, damn you to hell.
Wait, we are talking about England?
Fark 'em.

The price of a pint here is ridiculous. Happy hour specials are like $5. Normal price is $6-7 and that's for run-of-the-mill non-shiat beer. I liked it better in Oregon where the craft beer was $3 a pint ($2 during happy hour).

That's why I don't drink beer any more.  Too expensive for a not-very-interesting beverage.

Single malts and wine, please.

Home brew.

Even buying premium ingredients in non bulk quantities, it is still 1/4 the price of commercial swill.

In all honesty. I could care less.
Alcoholic.

"This food is revolting.  And such small portions!"

Finest beers in the world: $12.99 / 750ml.  How much does one 4 oz pour of fine wine or single malt scotch cost?

Inflation is killing the small man! We can't save a dime without some dirty politician trying to line the pocket of his cronies for a few loan percent and screwing us out of our beer. Big beer is killing the industry I tells you!

/But seriously, why does our money have to devalue to keep the economy going? How did we survive for the first 3800 years or so of recorded history?
