Drunk Diary, Day Twenty-Four
4 x Dark Star Sussex Extra Stout, 4.5% abv, 568mls, Units : 10.24
1 x Art Brew Blackcurrant Stout, 4.6% abv, 568mls, Units : 2.61
1 x Kernel Black IPA, 6.8% abv, 330mls, Units : 2.24
Total units day : 15.09
One thing I would like to mention is this BBC Radio's Newsbeat Booze Calculator. Now whilst this is a good idea in priciple I took this and it was almost two units higher than I actually took in yesterday. It also counts calories and expense and the amount of time it will take the alcohol to leave your body.
Whilst in principle it's a good idea, I object to the averaging out of calories and money. Apparently weak and strong beer costs the same on average.
I also object to them using big chains as part of their research as we all know that big pub chains work on volume sales quite a lot of the time and not on a specific GP and are therefore able to keep the prices of their beer down. Oh well, least they didn't use a 'spoons! Have a good day.
