    £7.00 for a pint? Some of the hotels I have stayed in whilst working in London haven't been far off this!

    An EG drinking session should definately be arranged in Panama though!

    Well having just come back from the England game in Amsterdam, they've missed one off that list.

    Typically about £4.30 (5 euros) in bars over there, up to £5.40 (6.25 euros) in the most popular bars. It was cheaper to drink in the airport!

    No wonder we all had a carrier bag of cans from the supermarkets

    Blimey, I thought paying £3 a pint was bad. That said I think we'll be up to £4 a pint by this time next year. I expect the government will put duty up again, not to mention large pub owning companies increasing the amount they're screwing out of small pubs.

    I agree - recently paid £5 for a bottle of Nastro Azzuro in London and £9.50 for a large glass of red wine in a hotel bar in Birmingham (for the wife) - although saying that - the wine was amazing.

    But the exchange rate works 2 ways.......... when I first moved the the UK a pint here cost me the equivalent of NZ$10 for a pint. Not good if you're not earning £'s yet and basically spending $ still...

    I gather home brewing/distilling is quite popular in NZ, always seem to be a lot of kiwis on the HB forums.
    I think I'm spending about 30/40p per pint for all grain, cheaper than the off license and better quality than a lot of pubs !

    They add on an extra couple of euros per pint to make up for the damage the english hooligans do

    I do homebrew wine and estimate that the mead I make costs £8/gallon. So that's about £1.60 per bottle of 24% mead - goes for around £10 a bottle in shops at least.

    I don't drink alcohol, but the price of soft drinks can be bad enough sometimes! Considering they use syrup and dilute it with carbonated water, which must cost 5p a pint or smoething? Went in a pub which was selling that for £2.80... no thanks!
