    This poll was started in 2013 but is still as popular as it was then. Join in and tell us what a pint costs where you are now.

    Back to the original post...

    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?

    Vote and post to let us know.

    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.

    My local, for a pint of bitter is 2.80, I always assume every pint includes enough tax to pay for a can of Stella for a dosser, cheers.

    Tron is cheap on weds, and Chanter generally has a good vibe with cheap pints for around 2.10

    Amber Rose as well on Rose street(cheap).

    2.90 at my regular pub, wish he'd put it down to 2.50 (so I can get 4 out of 10) but I'm not complaining, very rarely I go out to drink these days anyway.
