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?

Anyone else a budding home-brewer?
I plan on making plenty of Elderberry/Flower wine this year.
I'm also eager to go into All Grain beer brewing, having had fun and success tinkering with kits.
Other than the cleaning and boy is there a lot, i enjoy the whole process of making my own booze almost as much as drinking the stuff.
