Pubs not pasing on the Bulmers price reduction

An article in today's Sunday Times highlights what I've noticed in recent weeks - pubs have not been passing on the recent price cuts in Bulmers wholesale prices. Apparently just 1 in 5 have passed the reductions on to their customers. C&C had hoped that the reductions would drive the price of a pint bottle to below the magical E5 mark. Given that the majority of Dublin pubs appear to charge E5.5o or more, it appears that publicans are happy to pocket the difference.

This is true. I was in Dublin last weekend and The Quays Bar in Temple Bar was charging €6.25 a pt. bottle and just up the road in Capitol Bar we were charged €6.80. This is a disgrace and proof that rip off republic is still evident!
