Birmingham £5 a pint spotted

Have already seen the fiver a pint violated in Sheffield, of all places. S heffield Tap in the station, fantastic place otherwise, but all the hype is going to their heads it seems. Beer in question wasn't even some imported yankee cask ale or other exotic, was some stronger English beer that certa inly didn't warrant it in my mind.

Bloody hell I can get a pint in an expensive tourist bar in Dublin cheaper than that, not tha I do of course but pay around ?4.70 in an average bar.

I visited the Porterhouse in Dublin's trendy Temple Bar area last week. It was charging EUR 5.50 a pint for most of its own brews and just 5 euros for their excellent plain porter. Perhaps not technically "real ale" as define d by this ng, but at today's rate of exchange, EUR 5.50 translates to just GBP 4.20.

The Brew Dock (which is a Galway Brewery hose) isjust down the road from me near Bus Aras and Luas stop and sells many real ales at about ?5.50 including usually at least one hand pulled.

felt sure I was paying EUR 6 for Guinness in Dublin nearly 6 years ago which would have made it about GBP 4.20 even back then. Ive certainly paid GBP5 for a pint in London recently, Id have said GBP4.60 to GBP4.70 is the average, but I know some of the newer craft bars charge GBP 6

You could well have paid that back then, the recession here has dropped quite a few overpriced places off the market or at least moderated their prices.
