1/2 pint = 1/2 price of a pint 6 years 10 months ago #1

So I just saw on twitter that the beerhouse on capel street are charging half the price for half the beer, are many others with decent beer doing the same?

@beerhousedublin: Its 1/2 the liquid so it should b 1/2 the price right?@beerhousedublin we believe so too all our 1/2pt cost 1/2 the price of a regular pint!

Do the cottage group do this also? I think I remember them saying something similar before.
The beerhouse is actually very good value for pints also. Many of their pints are sub 5 euro. They have a decent selection of bottles also.

More and more places are starting to do it (incl ourselves).
It's a good idea in craft bars so people can enjoy several styles / seasonal beers from all the various micros.

I do like the idea of half a pint = half the price but I can understand why it shouldn't be. Basic economies of scale, when you go into a pub you are paying for;

a bartender, a (clean)glass, a stool, heating, lighting, possibly security, possibly entertainment and an amount of beer.

For comparison, an 8oz steak is always more than half the price of a 16oz and no one ever complains.

I hear some youngsters fill up on frozen burgers at home before heading in to city centre steakhouses.
