ALE Autumn 2001 No. 304

CAMRA Prices Survey 2001

CAMRA's annual prices survey this time covered 1000 pubs across the UK. So lager is still a big rip-off: it's no more expensive to produce, it's easier to keep and being dead it lasts much longer, so there is no reason for it being more expensive then real ale - except for the massive advertising campaigns which support it!
