Outside of the kind of pub that charges three quid a pint for everything
(except the stuff they charge four quid a pint for) much the same applies.
The real ales come in at about 1.75-2.30 and the mass-produced rubbish is
50p or so more a pint.

And then there was that nice little local where they had two shelves
taunting me with single malts. I'd start at one end and work across, and
before I'd got near the end they'd get some different ones in and I'd have
to start again. It was terrible, *terrible*, I tell you.
