Fancy spending £18 on a pint? No we are not asking you do head down to London for a pint of Fosters, nor are we asking you to ‘brew it yourself’. This Leeds bar ‘Friends of Ham’ offers some of the world’s finest beers, but would you be willing to break a twenty for one pint?
Found round the corner from the train station, this charcuterie and craft beer bar in the city centre that also has a cocktail bar underground is an absolute hidden gem and the perfect date night venue.
But, along with serving up meats, cheeses and quality beers and wines, they have a very unique bevvie that’ll set you back just a little bit.
The £18 a-pint beer in question comes all the way from Poland and is called Knight Moves Churro Biscuit Pastry Imperial Stout, a mouthful as well as a wallet drainer, and is described as a ‘big sweet malty stout’.
The Assistant Manager admitted, The Mirror reported, that it had only been bought as a pint twice “One was a stag do and the other was a man just having a tough day!”. He admitted it’s usually sold as a third of a pint for £6.
The bar is known for serving some of the world’s finest beers along with a range of local bevvies such as Kirkstall Pale Ale and its own FoH house pale.
The pub describes itself as a place where you’ll always receive a warm welcome ‘whether you choose to sit in the tiny upstairs bar lazing an afternoon away over a drink watching the ham carvers at work or catching up with friends on the sofas in the cosy candle-lit basement.’
