Currently sipping a few cans of Tyskie ABV. 5.6% cost €1.29 per .5l can.

Should be nicely 'wooded up' circa 2100 when my partner arrives home.
2100 doesn't arrive for another 88 years. Will you be sober by then?

I'd like to know the salaries of people, who call for price increases before I take them seriously.
...you could'nt handle that.

Try down town Paris for the real rip off: 10 euro a pint!
Were you outside, standing inside, sitting inside? all different costings as far as I know.

That amazes me. Mostly you can judge the happiness or up-tightedness of a city by the pint price but was recently there and most seem happy. :confused: unlike Dublin.

Barcelona and Bangkok are better examples of positive re-inforcement through price :)

Thats because they don't drink pints, they drink bottles of beer and glasses of wine.
Were you in an Irish Bar per chance?
No, I was never in an "Irish bar" in that sense, and what I call a pint was in fact a half litre, but 5 euro during happy hour fair enough (5-8 maybe). Generally the French drink demi-pressions but the half litre is available but expensive outside of happy hour.

He likes a couple himself in certain well-known Limerick establishments.
He should have a few with Varadker and Shatter.
Shatter could explain the crime-wave of ciggie smuggling caused exclusively by the farcical price of smokes and Varadker can explain how the high price of alcohol affects tourism.

20cents would be bad for the trade, costing more jobs,

the below cost supermarket trade needs to worry, I expect.....

Fair enough 6 euro a pint by the river and a tenner in most bars. Still pricy.

I love Paris but do most imbibing in places other than bars, and not in the public parks either. A very wonderful city.

Give the man a break. I'm sure he could do without their company.

Why do you say that?

I drink with my friends at home,plenty of chat and discussion.

Frikken pub close by is inhabited by blowhards and pot-bellied taximen who seem to know the answer for everything.
Can do without that kind of 'hello' and 'banter' myself, if you pardon me for saying so.

Too much competition John ?
