5.20 in the Kings off on Bolton St.

7.80e for a pint of Moretti in Fowlers Malahide and 6.40e for a guinness.



It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.
na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na.

People who complain about the price of pints really need to stay out of pubs. It’s not 1982. You walk into a boozer you know you are in for a shakedown.

Fun fact, Gunness is now the most popular drink in the UK. Loads of bellends in their 20s drink it to look cool. A funny old country I live in.

A year or so ago, my oul lad had some sheet from the 60s he owned which showed some pricing of goods and his salary. 

So I worked out the average salary back in the day and compared the prices of today and the price of a pint was surprisingly the same as is today. 


It would damage this forums' reputation

More popular than lager ?

No, it's the most sold beer, ahead of any other brand of beer

When I started work in the mid 80s a 3 bedroom house in a lower middle class part of Dublin like Artane was 3-4 times the annual salary, now that house is 10-12 times the annual salary. Interest rates were very high un the 80s alright but a high interest rate on a small mortgage is comparable to lower rates on a massive mortgage.

Surprising because  it looks and tastes sh*te from anything I've seen online or personally had the displeasure of tasting.

And lower interest rates drive up house prices.  In addition most people who buy a home now are double incomes which has also driven up house prices.  In addition there is about 1million extra people working population is growing also.  All of these combined with lack of supply have driven up house prices significantly.  

Pints are not cheap but as pointed above they are generally been in line with wage growth.  House prices have not.

Indeed, low interest rates and dinkies will increase prices but to who's benefit, not mine anyway.As regards beer, A can of beer was about 90p in the 80s (LCL pils, the discerning choice) when a pint was about £1.30 whereas a can now is less than €2 but a pint is over €6....difference is you don't have to drink but you do need somewhere to live...
