Electro! I remember it well! The Grosvenor never knew what hit them! It was autumn 1977, Id just finished Uni in London.
Was never held there again. I also remember the one at the Drill Hall in Volunteer Street!
Swifty could you get the Dubbel in cask? You would have to charge at least a fiver for that!

Remember the one at the Drill hall where I joined Camra in 74.the beer festival also did a stint at the Mollington Banastre around that time too,can't remember it being at the Grosvenor though. Going back to expensive beers the Weetwood at the Queens hotel is £4/pint so does that put it in 3rd spot?

Congratulations to the Architect for matching London prices! I was there a couple of weekends ago and a pint of Fullers London Pride cost £4-10 at the Red Lion, Westminster. :suprised:

A dubious accolade indeed and nowt to be proud of!!

Was in the Bree Louise, Euston yesterday. Most gear is £4.00, £3.50 with card. Sadly, most of it was total bilge.

It's still hugely popular but quality has slipped badly, albeit, it was never top notch to be fair.

BB- I have to agree with your comments re beer quality at the Bree Louise. It's 2 or 3 years since I supped in there - it's convenient for a couple of quick scoops before getting the train home but beer quality has been going downhill for a few years now. I'm surprised it's still in the GBG.

I agree with the previous posters about the Bree Louise. Not much incentive to go there since the Euston Tap opened.

Thanks for that Scooper I'll give it a try today.

Used to frequent in the early 80's but not bothered since.

Useful to know that, Scooper. It's many years since I went in there (think it was Taylor Walker). There used to be an excellent chippy just a bit further along Eversholt St (don't know if it's still there).

It started with your comment about the (exorbitant) price of ale in the said establishment, which one way or another ended up getting compared to prices in London. But hey, Mr.L you know this and, mark you, you started it!!

Perhaps bump into you at the w/e if your'e about ......
