We'd love to know what a pint costs in your neck of the woods and Friday night's as good a time as any to ask!

Are you living within spitting distance of a holy grail, super cheap pub or do you need to sell a liver to buy one in your local?

    Never less than £1 but they did have lots for £1 when I was in uni - 20 years ago.

    A pint of what? Bitter is a lot cheaper than lager. Our local sells Kronenbourg for £2.80.

    Tell me about it Perran, I live in Blackburn and right next to the Thwaites tower brewery a bitter is £2.40 yet 15 miles away in Rossendale the price is £1.80

    Breweries set the prices and rents of their pubs, so are ridiculously overpriced, one guy my friends know sells casks of beer at lower the wholesale price and still makes a good profit!

    I don't have a local, they all closed down and got flats built in their place. Seems the prime land they were sitting on was more profitable to the breweries than the beer they were selling.

    Until last year, a pint of Ruddles ale in Wetherspoons in Derby was 99p on Mondays. I think its gone up to an eye watering £1.29 now.
