Well it was going to happen.
It looks like it's goona happen now.

Price of beer in a pub is around 2.50 ($5)
According to this article it could soon be 4.00 ($8)

I'm just glad I know how to get it cheaper!

The price of barley and metal, used for making cans, has gone up by more than 50 per cent in the past two years, while the company's energy costs have soared by more than 150 per cent in some cases. For the punter this equates to an average pint of lager now ringing in at 2.82.
But in London and south-east England, drinkers face significantly higher prices. 'The current wave of price increases means 4 a pint will be far more commonplace this year,' said a spokesman for the British Beer & Pub Association.
Have a beer on me.

Always interesting to compare our production costs to the big guys. It's obvious materials and energy are a minor part of the retail price even with the recent increases.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
