Siren Craft is only 2 miles from me, and much as I want to like their beer (and I've tried a lot of them) I struggle.
The Cask Beer Kitchen have cask ale at around the same price as a pint of Fuller's anywhere else. If you were drinking London Pride, that's 4.1% ABV, if the ale Apothecary beer you're talking about is El Cuatro, it's 10.58% ABV, so there is a big difference in duty alone. The cost of fermenter space on a strong beer is more. Most of Fuller's is probably knocked out pretty quickly.Think the most expensive place I've found is Cask in Pimlico CASK Pub & Kitchen
They had an Imperial Stout for something like £14 a third of a pint. Just looked at their latest beer list and they have Ale Apothecary from Oregon for a whopping £69 for 750ml
And no I didn't pay those prices, really wanted to try the place out but as I got close decided to go to the good ol' Jugged Hare up the road and a pint of Fullers for much less.
You are joking of course (aren't you?) On that principal you will be happy to pay 300% for all your shopping.If England's pubs have only 1/3 of number of customers, they must charge 3 x former prices PLUS additional costs of sanitiser, gel, masks, screens, etc. So £12 a pint is very fair. If you want pubs in the future, keep the pubs in existence NOW. Cheers !!!!
