Where will it all end...

To cap all the financial gloom there is now talk of the £4.00 pint of Stella Artois amongst others.

So what's the problem?

Go to Wetherspoons where you can still buy a pint of REAL ale for less than £2.50.

Why pay any sort of money for fizzy tasteless gnat's urine?

At £2.50 a pint for Real Ale they can keep it.

It is no wonder the Pubs are going out of business

...and "REAL" ale is warm and flat and smells of my grandads underpants (I just know).

If your pints warm and flat,suggest you change pubs

.... and if you're into smelling your granddad's underpants, I suggest that you may want to look for an alternative hobby.

It's not a hobby, it's care.

To add flavour to the 'gnats urine', you can add a shot of lime for around 40p. A rip off if ever there was one.

Some of Wetherspoons customers are a little offputting, but the buildings can be interesting, often converted from something that was once much grander.

Part of the cost of a beer goes to the upkeep of the PUB but I would think £4 is likely to put off even drinkers with deep pockets. Does anyone dare to buy a round these days? I packed in when we had to stump up a £1 for four pints of bitter.

Reminds me of the joke:
"What's the difference between a .....man and a Coconut"

"You can get a drink out of a Coconut"

(fill in the missing word as your prejudice dictates)
