You could say that about anything though, so the question imo is a valid one.

Ello Andy,

A Pint here in Adelaide is smaller than anywhere else 425 ML!But almost all Pubs have $5 specials on offer,so it aint too bad.Most of them are so so,but not all!I just had a sesh on James Boags Draught,and another this week on Coopers Pale Ale.Went to the Belgian Bar in Brissy recently and paid $16 for a pint of Nectar!It was served in a giant wine glass,and was most definitely the best beer i have ever tasted(and blew me brains out)All in all,you can get by here,having a beer without remortgaging!:wink::yes:

the pub i rarely frequent is about $7.80 for Tooheys, touch more for Heineken ect but a nice kept pint .....i only visit these establishments when we have guest as it does become rather expensive .....so i have the guest purchase the alcohol for me ..........thus become rather cheaper and more enjoyable to drink outside my humble abode................

when not entertaining at home i put the guest beer away ( XXXX Gold) or VB ( Visitors beer ) and carry on with my Budweiser and cast wine Berries 5ltr traditional red voted the best red in WA 2009 and was only $ 8.95 per 5ltr cast last week so we stocked up big style 'suffice to say' i dont really drink much these days ........im trying to cut down the beer before the wine ect .........:yes:

:wink:The eating out in the pubs was reasonable i thought nick? dont know about perth but in SA they all seem to have schitzel nites(i think a fair few germans settled in sa),think it was about 10 $,but grab as much side order as yer want,the way i worked the price of a beer out is that its more or less a quarter of an hours pay,same as it is here really

So how much does it cost if you buy a case from the bottle shop? I'm guessing they don't do those 3 cases for £20 offers we get from the supermarkets over here.
