Blog: Olly WehringA pint - a pint. My kingdom for a pint!

Olly Wehring | 23 April 2009

A London pub has offered a helping hand to customers struggling with the recession by hosting a ‘Barter-for-Beer’.

Dawn Kolpin, landlady of The Marksman pub in Shoreditch, East London, has started to accept goods and services in exchange for beers to help its punters through the credit crunch.

“It could solve the credit crunch at a stroke”, said Kolpin “It’s amazing what you can buy for a pint of beer.”

Her list of wanted items ranges from CDs to reams of papers.

Drinkers can even provide services such as tuning the pub's piano as payment for starters and drinks.

“I’ll consider any offer that might make the pub better”, said Kolpin.

I wonder how many women might decide to take their hubbies along….for a nice pint of course.
