At the exchange rate this very instant, that's about $17-$20, which sounds
about right.

Of course, I like mine one pint at a time. The little Irish pub down in the
Gaslamp district does $3 pints Sunday evening, and since they're in Ireland,
they're Imperial pints, 20 ounces. The corned beef and cabbage (a *huge*
plate) is $7 and they have really good live music (more or less professional
followed by excellent amateurs) so for $13 plus tip I can have all the fun
I'm allowed in one evening.
