I know ingredients are getting expensive, but this is ridiculousJanuary 30, 2008
I hung out in my old part of the city over the weekend (southwest Center City or G-ho as some want to call it) and hit a few pubs.
I won’t name names, but look at these tap prices.
EIGHT BUCKS for a Great Divide IPA? $6.50 for a Southampton?
And they’re served in 16 oz glasses, not even true pints. Maybe these are normal prices and I just haven’t been out in a while?
The next bar has the right idea; just don’t post the prices!
And while I’m complaining, I have to tell you what has happened to me in 9 out of 10 of the last pubs I’ve visited.
I check out the list, see a beer I’m really excited to try (usually an IPA, natch) I order it, and hear “sorry, that just kicked”. I was so happy to see Bells Two-Hearted back on tap last week at Bishops Collar. Nope. (I can mention them because their prices are always fair).
Bear Republic at the above bar? Sorry. And it’s always a beer listed on the chalkboard, (easily erasable) and I’m always out early on a Friday, not late on a Sunday.
