    While we were in France and Italy we could not find a beer under 6 Euro. Really expensive and dearer than the UK. In Spain the avarage cost is 2.50 Euro and even found a Supermarket selling Desperado at 79p a bottle

    If that was a pint you were doing well.
    Over here, a 20 cl glass of beer, cheapest price in a bar 2.20 Euro.
    A UK Pint is 56.8 cl
    A bottle of beer over here, 30 cl costs 65 Euro Cents.

    I do not know what a pint costs in the UK as when we were over there in May this year, we just drank it........:D

    Last week in York I was paying £16-£17 for a round of 4 beers. In London a pint of Stella varies from £3.85 to £6.00 a pint depending where you are

    So, in the UK that would cost approx € 4.9347 in a local.

    Yep, same as Amsterdam.
