£6.15 a pint

I paid £6.15 for a pint of beer yesterday.  It's not the most expensive pint i've ever bought, that was in a Monaco hotel bar (€12 for 500ml), but it is a sorry state of affairs.

Was the beer nice?  Yes, it was.  Was it worth £6.15?  No, it was not.

We also had two bottles of an Oyster Stout.  A black chocolaty liquid.  That was £5.60 a bottle (500ml).  Per ml it's actually more pricey.  1.12p / ml versus 1.08.

One thing is for sure, if all beer was priced that high I certainly wouldn't go out as much so maybe it's a good thing in disguise.
