      For a guinness it's £4.50 in Peter Kavanagh's, call it a fiver with ten bob for whoever serves us. Most of the pubs along Catherine St are similarly priced as well.

      Very rarely drink pints in town these days, by the time I'm that far into the night I'm on the rum and coke.

      Over £6 is common in Belfast City centre these days.

      Can't recall the actual price as I never remember.

      £4 for a pint of Guinness in the local Millbank, a five minute walk from my place. Although if you go to the Sun Verge on the promenade, same pint £5.05 quite a variation in price !

      £4.50 to a fiver seems like the normal price for a pint these days.

      Was in Newcastle a couple of weeks ago and saw pints in the Wetherspoon's going for £2.40. Coming up from London, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

      Actually drinking Newcastle Brown Ale right now. Why does it taste so good? I'm not much of a beer drinker but Newcastle Brown Ale is something else.

      It's all those Geordies pissing in the brewing vats knowing all the southern softies are loving the taste!

      seriously I get what you mean, it has a taste of it's own and I actually like it!

      It's about £4.50 a pint over on the east coast (Scarborough) unless you go into a trendy bar and then it can hit £5.50-£6
      York is about £6 in town too for real ale (Timmy Taylors stuff) but if you buy a pint of Weasel Fart or Badger's Breathe in York it can be £9 a pint

      It has got a good taste to it and that can be the downfall (literally) too many and you’re on your knees!
      A strong brew is the Newcastle Brown.

      Very nice indeed. Haven't had one in a while but always found it a solid bet. I think the best ales I've had have been from Scotland. There was one from Loch Leven one time that was heavenly. Lager wise, I think a good Asahi is hard to beat, although it's usually not cheap. Getting a round of drinks these days feels like you're being robbed blind, especially when someone chucks in a wine or a cocktail.

      Loch Leven ale? Interesting. How does it taste??

      My reference point doesn't stray much further than Tennents, which says a lot about my choice of pints. Had some Orkney Corncrake Ale a few years back but did not like it - tasted like soap from what I recall. Being fairly stereotypical about my own country here but when it comes to alcohol and Scotland, I look no further than a single malt!

      Nice to see the love for Newcastle Brown here! Dead right stuey - it's a deceptively strong drink in the alcohol content!

      Light, golden and as though you've just woken up lochside. I do think having craft ale when you're there can add to the experience or maybe it's the other way around.

      We went crazy a few years back and bought a load of Talisker, although the peatiness is not to everyone's taste!

      Brown ale in general is quite nice. I know the Cabbage in Anfield used to do Mann’s brown ale, which was fairly cheap back in the day.

      Our local, PKs, do bottles of Newcastle brown. I’ll get one every now and then but I do tend to stay on the Guinness nowadays - which has just been upped to £4.70.

      Newky brown always reminds me of Keegan’s mid-90s Newcastle team though when they were the sponsor.

      Up in Edinburgh last week.
      £6 for a beer.
      Was worse for a bottle of Coke. £4.50.

      There is a reason I stay out of pubs nowadays.
