One of the easiest economic indicators for boom and bust periods in Western Australia has always been the cost of a pint, and in our current cost of living crisis, it’s pretty obvious they’re on the rise again.
Remember a few years ago when pubs were fighting each other to see how low their pint prices could go?
While pinching those princely pennies may be a priority for plenty of us right now, we’re not above popping down to the local pub for a quick pint to opine with our pals the perils of feeling perennially poor.
And if you are a) a fan of Swan Draught, and b) living around the greater Fremantle area, we have stumbled across a handy little website to save you a few bucks if you like to do the same.
Swan Watch‘s ethos is simple, listing the “cheapest Swan Draught prices in and around Freo”, handily ordered from cheapest to most expensive.
According to the list, The Wray Hotel’s $8 pints unsurprisingly top the list, though you can get the same price during The National Hotel’s Happy Hour, and even cheaper at the Australia Hotel’s Happy Hour ($7.50).
From there prices range from $10 at the Buffalo Club all the way up to $13 at the Norfolk Hotel, while new-kid-on-the-block Patio is slinging $16 long necks.
So go forth friends, do with this information what you will, and if you made this website and would like some credit for it – let us know!
