Campaign For Real Ale
If you have any real ale related news for the Heart Of Warwickshire area, please contact us!
The CAMRA Conference in Nottingham this year passed a motion to look into the practice that some pubs operate in charging consumers more for the half price of a drink when purchasing a half than the proportional cost of a half of a pint. It also notes that this practice is not illegal and instructs the National Executive to mount a national campaign against this practice which militates against both sampling and sensible drinking.
To help us embark on an effective campaign, we need plenty of evidence that this really is a widespread problem. We'd be very grateful therefore if you could let me know of current examples of this regrettable practice in the HOW Branch area. We're talking here about significant discrepancies – not just marking up by a few pence.
Please send the information to Ellen.email@example.com and include the following information:
Your CAMRA branch (Heart of Warwickshire)
Your email address
Name and address of the pub
Any detail on which beers cost more for a half pint than half the cost of a pint (please name brands if possible, including lager brands)

Price of a pint
Price of half a pint
