Carling in Selly Oak is around £1.70, and is as far as I know in most chain pubs. Carling is the low end of the market, a budget lager if you like, and is usually under or around £2. £2.50 is usually reserved for stuff like Grolsch and Stella, premium lagers.
Smelly Poke is student city, plus I guess you have a yellow card do you not?. I dont see the difference between buying at pint at C11 or the Acadamy when you go to gigs there... after all there sometimes 3.20 and ppl pay for it
every ones favorite drunken thrash metal bastard
And you ate a 12 inch before I was halfway through a 9 inch!
We don't set the drink prices and don't have the clout to negotiate cheap deals but I agree that they're expensive.
The old Reanimator prices were awesome: we knew these were going to be higher but I was a bit surprised on Saturday as they were higher than I'd anticipated. It is a bit of a compromise I suppose in that we have a nice venue and a cheap night as far as entry goes, but you are still entitled to moan at us and we will see what we can do.
