There is an 87p difference in the price of a pint of ale between the cheapest and most expensive regions of the country, according to the Good Pub Guide 2017.

The national average price for a pint of ale is now £3.47, which is an increase of 1p from when the figures were complied a year ago for the 2016 edition of the Good Pub Guide​.

There is some good news for residents of Herefordshire because that is the cheapest county in Great Britain for ale; a pint there costs, on average, £3.21. In contrast, residents of London will not be surprised to hear that they suffer the most expensive ale prices; a London pint averages £4.08.

Each county has been given one of five categories by the guide. Bargain beer (represented by green on the map below) is the cheapest category; followed by fair-priced beer (blue on the map); average-priced beer (yellow); expensive beer (orange); and finally rip-off beer (red).
