Unless you go to a Wetherspoons or the like, prices are generally 2 drinks for a tenner wherever you go.

It's insane, really, and the reason I rarely venture out to drink these days - a couple of hours and you're 50 lighter.

I know, I don't go out much these days but we do have an annual family all dayer in bath and i can easily spend 150 quid.

My 2016 New Years resolution to try as many different beers as possible has been going well.

I'm spending a ridiculous amount of money on beer lately but now up to 116 unique beers for 2016. I'm pretty happy with that.

By virtue of a couple of tastings/brewery tours I've tried two odd but good beers that I would have never tried otherwise:

Canopy Beer Co's Into The Deep - stout brewed with real oysters.
And the weirdest beer I've ever tried Yeastie Boys' Rex Attitude made with 100% heavy peat malt. It smells like burnt wood and TCP but tastes like cigars and whisky. Weird but good.

It's good to have a hobby.

Wow. I wish I had counted the ones I have had...

Do they include Marks and Spencer own brand ones? They have very good beers.

That's very popular round here. I know someone who has it tattooed on his chest.

I cannot recommend high enough the service of this beer shop, 3 days from order to delivery, one off postage of 7.49 for however many bottles you order with possibly the best selection I have seen in this country.

Just got my Christmas delivery of 21 Belgian, German and English Christmas beers from them...can't wait to try them.

Anyone know why the beer Dead Pony Club is so expensive? 4 diddy cans 8.40 and only 3.8%.

It'd better taste like Emma Watson's piss at that price.

Where is that? Usually about 6 for a four pack of Brewdog here.

It's a session IPA so low percentage.

Just tried Old Peculier for the first time, can't decide if I like it or what it is
