Price of Beer in Australia

It does seem that many people feel that the price of Beer in Australia is very high in comparison to the prices in Britain.

I am not sure if that is only for drinking in Pubs, or for purchases from the Bottle Shops.

In late 2008, I saw these prices for drinks served in pubs:

$3.90 Schooner
$3.10 Middy

$3.50 Schooner
$2.50 Middy

$3.50 Schooner in RSL
$3.90 Schooner
