JD Wetherspoon pubs in Redditch will be selling beer at 1992 prices from January 3rd- 11th

RESIDENTS can enjoy a January sale with a difference at two pubs in Redditch.

The Rising Sun in Alcester Street and The Royal Enfield in Unicorn Hill will each be serving pints of beer at 1992 prices.

A pint of Greene King Ruddles Best Bitter will be £1.29, a pint of Carlsberg will be £1.99, a bottle of Beck’s £1.29 and a cup of coffee 79p.

James Doughty, manager of The Rising Sun, said: “I am sure my customers will welcome the reduction in prices, especially at the start of the year.

“Department stores and shops hold their sales in January and I believe that given the choice of a trip to a sale at the shops or a sale at The Rising Sun, most people would prefer a visit to the pub.”

The sale runs from Tuesday, January 3 until Wednesday January 11th

In March 1993  draught bitter was 132 pence per pint and draught lager was selling at 149 pence per pint.

Not quite 1992 prices but the price drop will be welcomed by customers at a time when 7 independent pubs close in the UK everyday.

It comes after the number of drink drivers in the West Midlands have increased and The Police Christmas Crackdown and warnings to drivers to leave the car at home during nights out seems to of failed.
