Lockdown has done one of two things to people: make them want to go out and spend their hard earned money irrespective of prices, or stay in, opting for a crate from the supermarket instead.
For Séan Murphy, it seems very much the former after he took to social media to express his shock at being charged nearly £20 for two pints - but says they were 'great pints mind you'.

The Scotsman turned to Twitter to share the £18.27 bill he received, writing: "This still knocked me six at the weekend, when did this become acceptable in Glasgow for two pints? Great pints mind you."
He went on to add: "It was a beautiful pint, was just shocked at the price."
He also said there was a five percent service charge added to the bill.
Séan explained he was at the Shilling Brewing Company in Glasgow which claims to have 'an appreciation of the art and science of brewing', and says it's the 'first to bring the brewpub experience to the heart of Glasgow'.
Commenting on Séan's post, one person pointed out: "Many pubs being abandoned due to alcohol pricing, mainly the good old pint."
Another gave him a suggestion to try Shilling's own Unicorn IPA next time because it's 'magic' to which he replied: "We had about 7 or 8 different ones on Saturday, they were all class." At least he was happy.
Another commented: "That's no even the dearest one. Wouldn't fancy it being my round in there."
After Séan admitted to not knowing the price initially, it left one person rather baffled, asking: "I'm confused, were the prices hidden? I usually check the price of something and then choose to pay for it or not.
"If the prices were unavailable then fair enough, but if you saw them and ordered it anyway you're accountable for your own actions."
He responded: "There's no prices listed for pints as they sell it in 1/3 or 2/3 pints. If I knew how expensive it was I would have still ordered but it was more the shock of not realising and also the 5% service charge that I had issues with. As I said before the beer was worth the money."
Shilling Brewing Co. told LADbible: "Shilling Brewing Company is home to the largest Draught Beer selection available under one roof in Scotland, we pride ourselves on regularly having over 30 unique beers to choose from, starting from £4.50 a pint.
"We appreciate some specialist beers come with a premium price due to the ingredient cost and unique brewing processes used by ourselves and other specialist small batch breweries which we support and collaborate with.
"We do however offer all our beers in a Third Pint, Half Pint, Schooner and Pint size options therefore giving everyone a chance to sample a top quality beer without breaking the bank."
