Small plates of food disguised as 'tapas'. its not tapas, it's a tiny portion.

Also, places serving schooners instead of pints, without any price adjustment. Seems to be a 'thing' now in Liverpool. Fuck off paying £4.50 for two-thirds of a pint.

Hermes seem to have made an art of incompetence. If it's not delivered several days after it's intended delivery date, then the item arrives damaged.

on another angry maile note - anyone have anything sent from US by UPS?
tracking from Las Vegas last week - parcel bounced around LA for a few days, then stopped?
UPS say they use USPS and Royal mail. tracking number given only relates to USPS.

It was a pint of Estrella.

Not exactly a working men's club beer granted but it never commands that kind of premium even in London.

Beermoth in Manchester does craft pints from £3.10, probably the consistently cheapest place to drink

Beermoth proof that everyone is just fleecing you. City centre location, decent fit out, loads of beers and still cheaper than almost everywhere for a pint!

That's odd because the shop itself used to price bottles well above what they charged in the basement at Superstore.

Not a fair moan really, but pisses me off how much I like Japanese brands that really don't suit my build. Got a Kapital shirt today and it's definitely wearing me more than the other way around. I've spent more at Uniqlo this year than on premium stuff.
