So you're OK with a half pint costing you £11.25? It's not like the surroundings of the 'pub' are particularly sumptuous either.
It costs 20 quid for a 750ml bottle online, so in a pub a 3x markup seems pretty fair.

That’s a smaller mark up than greene king ipa Albert vs Morrison’s ( pound a tin ).

I’m not falling for this PR game of trying to generate free coverage for the good pub guide, by suggesting that that this is some sort of standard beer.

How about you calculate how much they on a single pint of this stuff and then tell me if you still think it's 'pretty fair'?

If you know how much it costs to import a barrel of beer from the us, let me know and I’ll have a go.

Sorry, I thought you were the one that knew all the figures and were defending the bar's 'pretty fair' mark up - but now you're saying you don't know what it is?!

Oh dear.

I can’t believe brew dog sell pints of Guinness !
It might be like Lidl. They sell some branded stuff alongside their own wares, but only to provide an unfavourable comparison.

Lurpak, £3.99. Danpak £1.89.

Heineken, £2.50/litre. Perlenbacher £1.50/litre.

There's a lot of entitled pricks out there....
And then there's the finger clickers demanding you play whatever shit song it is they want to hear.

Mind you, me and my friend were DJing one night and some utter bellend wanted to impress the girl he was by offering to pay us £10 each to play a song. He made a big show of paying us - which was fine because I was about to play the song anyway.

Total win-win. :D:facepalm:

How old are these people...I started going to youth club discos age 12 and I never saw anyone throw a wobbler cos a request was denied.
Anywhere from 20 years old upwards, although it's usually the boozed/cooked up ones in their 30s and 40s with a bigger sense of entitlement.

Surely the Albert don't sell cans of Greene King IPA? As a refugee from Bury St Edmunds I'm shocked and appalled.

I dispute your Lidl prices there.
Heineken ought to be £2.50 per 750 mL
Perlenbacher could be £1.50/litre for Non-alcoholic - or alcoholic (bottle) Perlenbacher would be 99p per 500mL (£1.98 per L)

BTW if you've taken your blood pressure tablets look at Morrisons Lurpak - £6.99 per kg I think you'll find.

I've never seen it, but should anyone look to justify the outlandish prices of the Craft Beer Co by comparing them with the prices charged at the Albert, they'd be in for one hell of a drubbing. :D

A steam train just went through Brixton but I could hardly hear it because some annoying twat has been playing the same all-autotuned dire dancehall for the last hour through a painfully bass-free sound system.

Saw your article on Brixton pound cafe looking for premises, wonder of Lambeth would consider letting the cafe space at back of Nu town hall, think it's part of Ivor house building. Seems they have been unable to find tenants for any of the development so fair.

Yeah, I saw that yesterday. Old school!

When did the Brixton Doddle close? It always seemed pretty busy but the writing was on the wall from years ago
London delivery startup Doddle is closing most of its stores after burning through tens of millions of pounds

Pop Brixton should have been a perfect venue too, but then that's more about entrepreneurs, wine importers and expensive food and booze these days.

I'll forward them your suggestion although I expect that the rent will be sky high (the rent was doubled on their last premises, hence their departure).
