In this day and age of nearly 5 pints I wonder why more non SS pubs and social/sporting clubs don't sell the likes of Taddy's and Best Bitter etc ? as if I was a struggling pub/club I be stocking the bar with a lot of the SS products.

When I read your post I had a laugh about the 5 per pint,   who would pay that? Then I had a think about it.  Today I paid 16 for a glass of white wine, a cider and a bottle of chimmey.   Pleased to say I then  visited 2 Sam Smiths pubs for down to earth prices.   Two weeks ago I was somewhere were it was 10 for a beer.  And no I didn't buy it.

I meant lot of pubs and bars have lagers like Moretti for 4.70 and real ale can be 3.20-3.60 in my area.

I couldn't agree more with you. Perhaps there is less profit in Sam's drought products.

The day I spend 5.00 on a pint is the day I start to drink at home. I don't even think it's worth 2.00 no mater what or who's brew it is! Beer makes petrol look cheap and we all moan about that don't we?

To be fair, where we live pretty much every club sell Sam Smiths beers. Cullercoats, Tynemouth, all of the Shields clubs. The rep is very active.

Good, I wish it were the same where we are! I think Taddy may be in one club but not sure.
