An Ode to Humphrey Smith
« on: Jan 11 - 2017 »
Just found the below article that may be of interest.

http://www.thelondoneconomic.com/tle-pick/an-ode-to-humphrey-smith/04/01/

A valid point on the cost of a pint if football was on TV, I just googled that the typical cost of sky and BT sports is around 15K a year for pubs.

The article also links back to this forum.

After reading that I think Humphrey being like he is can be a good thing. When he does eventually  die his son may change things we do not want to see changed. For instance I am sick to death of hearing loud rubbish music in non Sam Smiths pubs as I like to sit down and read or just have a think and when I take the wife we can actually hear each other speak. Let us hope that Humphreys son only changes the things that need changing.

As I keep boring people with my problem with beer prices I just hope he doesn't but them up every year as the uniqueness of the Brewery will disappear.
