I have heard a few times that back in the 50s, 60s, 70s that, unless you were home brewing, drinking at home was uncommon because it was much cheaper to drink beer in a pub.
Which makes sense: the pub has economies of scale, less and reusable packaging (barrels, glasses), and the beer doesn't need additional treatment such as pasteurization before canning.
Now this has swung entirely the other way. Beer in pubs is something like 3x or 4x the price of beer in an off licence and the pubs I frequent are more eating than drinking places these days as having eight pints costs you £30 out or from £5 - £10 at home.
I can guess at some drivers - pub rents if tenanted - but the scale of the change suggests much bigger factors have caused this. Any insights?

Ok, I thought a separate thread for this.
the first wine for tasting. Have we to spend the week getting hold of a bottle and then adding our thoughts here. Then we can suggest another for next Friday.
need to add the wine. Didn't copy correctly. I will be right back with it
