Coincidentally, my wife has just read out an article in our local rag that our nearby Wetherspoons pub is having a sale. Beer at 1992 prices, for example Ruddles County for £1.29. Is the sun over the yardarm yet?
Back in the 80's I was into home-brewing.I obtained all of my sterilising materials,40 litre bin, syphon tubes, yeast, finings gel...and of course, the Tinned Beer concentrate...mostly 40pt ones, but I had a go at the 30pt kits as well...from BOOTS the Chemists.
To cut a long story short, my dad sneaked into the airing cupboard where the bottles of beer where settling down to the final clearing stage.
He only had about three bottles, but ended up having hallucinations all that night, and next morning as well.
He had been watching the fantasy film "Clash of The Titans" on TV, that afternoon...that's the one with Harry Hamlin and Medusa and The Kraken and Calibos.....and the little Golden Owl.
It was very potent stuff. (about 12% alcohol)
Then, back in the 80's, it worked out at about 20p a pint.
