Is it just me or has the price of a pint gone up again after recent lockdowns?
Around London I'm seeing £6+ for a pint of rainwater (e.g. Camden Hells) in a plastic cup.
It gets to a stage where the cost of a pint just outweighs the enjoyment you get from it. I'm finding that my friends and I (seasoned drinkers) are just doing other things rather than going to a pub, or getting a few beers and sitting in a park instead.
Soon pints will be £8 in normal pubs in the not so distant future. Are there any places that serve sub £4 or even sub £5 pints nowadays?
I used to work temp jobs at uni and one such assignment was to work the food and drinks stand at a football stadium. Draught beer is served but only in plastic pint cups.
During the half time rush, it was so busy that we simply ran out of cups. We radioed one of the other stands to see if they could spare any, but it would be at least 5 minutes before someone could run them over to us.
Most people who wanted a pint at this time grumbled but accepted that ultimately there was nothing we could do. One guy however looked around briefly, picked up a dirty cup that someone had thrown on the floor, handed it to me and said "here this'll do just give it a quick rinse"
I obliged but not before raising an eyebrow.
For those who don't understand why low volume is fucking amazing for us go read some DD.
This is a fucking powder keg and the match is being lit.....HODL FOR THE BOOOOOOM !!!!!
I think I just got reverse middle-aisle'd.
I went on a date the other day and realized how much I love this new system of browsing and paying drinks from your phone. I don’t have to pay for my date’s drinks which is just so good, and I avoided the uncomfortable moment of “are we splitting the check?” Am I guy and this is gonna save me so much money in the long term.
Isn't it essentially payer for more money for less quality beer?
I'm genuinely willing to be proved wrong.
Came across this on Twitter and thought I'd share.
Imagine paying over £5 for a pint in Benedict's - BENEDICT'S!
I am a bartender and I have actually had two customers do this. They both look like they are on drugs and they go to the toilet for a very long time. They come out looking intoxicated, more on the ‘uppers’ side but with some incoherentness / slurring reminiscent of a very heavy downer.
One girl actually comes out of the toilet and REFILLS the pint multiple times. I understand you get thirsty from many drugs and I have recreationally tried many, but I don’t recognise this and I’m just curious. (If it helps they usually don’t drink much alcohol and if they do it’s a while after the toilet pints) Can anyone help me to understand?
Yeah so I went into Logan Airport in Boston MA with my pint in a bag as my carryon.
TSA denied it immediately upon seeing it. I explained all the battery info and showed docs and the 147wh on the device. They called a manager over who then denied it as well. They said if the airline gives the OK then they’ll let me thru so I had to bring it back out front to AA.
The lady said no. I explained everything again. Explicitly called it a camera dolly. Even had my camera with me as I actually am a photographer. She looked over my stuff and called a manager. Manager walked up saw it and said no out right.
He said no hoverboards. I explained it isn’t w hoverboard and has a completely different battery. He explicitly said it’s not the battery it’s the whole device is not allowed. He’s specifically gotten pictures from corporate that says to deny this specific device.
Shit sucked. They wouldn’t let me leave it at the terminal or even in a locker for a friend to come grab for me claiming a “safety issue”. Had to call an Uber and have it delivered to a friend who thankfully was awake at 5:30am and was not too far from the airport.
Missed my flight. They were nice enough to rebook me for free but it has a layover and has added 4 hours to my cross country journey so here I sit in Phoenix waiting on my connector saddened to be parted from my little friend. 😩
At least my XR is still at home waiting for our reunion later today 😈
Seriously, it's it's being rammed down out throats "you can go and have a drink now, enjoy your pint". Even on the BBC during breakfast.
I know not everyone in the world is trying to quit, and I need to focus on my own battle, but I'll not lie it's pissing me right off!
Now I've almost run out of milk and I'll have to go to the shops again.
Never been asked for a pint of milk from a tradesman before!
It's been lovely to go back to the pub but I'm already going to have to cut down, a nice pint is minimum £5.20, upwards of £6 in mostly everywhere I've been (South West London). Has anyone found the same?
Any pubs out there that aren't crazy prices? I'm going to have to go back to home drinking.
