Everyone has their favourite alcoholic beverage, but, the most popular phrase you hear in pubs around the U.K is “A pint please”. However, would the price of a pint stop you from buying one?
How much do you pay for a pint of beer? How much would you be willing to pay? Do you love the good old spoons deals? Or are you willing to splash the cash for your favourite pint?
Here at the Ezy Guides office in Yorkshire, we’re proud to say that Yorkshire beats competition across the UK by having the lowest average price for a pint! That’s right, here in Yorkshire the average price for a pint is £3.31.
You’re probably thinking London is the most expensive place in the United Kingdom to buy a pint… However, you’re wrong. A survey by the good pub guide 2018 has revealed that London’s’ average price for a pint is £4.20; yes you read it correct £4.20 for a pint! That’s almost an hour’s work on minimum wage, or you could get your lunch for cheaper…
Surrey on the other hand, tops all of our estimates and charges a whopping average of £4.40 for a pint!
Whilst we can all sit and say that’s a rip off! The problem isn’t just that we have to pay more for a pint… The decision to increase duty on beer has had a huge impact on pubs throughout the U.K. On average 21 pubs a week are closing down due to a number of factors that hold a significant burden over their licenses, forcing them with the only option to close.
We’re passionate about keeping the pub industry strong here at Ezy Guides, which is why the subject of 21 pubs closing a week is hard hitting for us, bringing entertainment and pubs together could help the situation.
Right now we have plenty of venues on our map throughout the U.K., mainly in Yorkshire, so why not head over to an event in the Yorkshire area and grab one of the cheapest pints in the U.K. It’ll feel good, we promise.
Until next time,
THE EZYGIG TEAM
