Cheltenham Festival punters forced to pay out staggering amount for pint of Guinness… one of most expensive in WORLD
CHELTENHAM Festival punters are sure to work up a thirst watching their favourite riders in action.
But they’ll need a big payout if they want to enjoy several pints of Guinness.

The Irish tipple goes hand-in-hand with horse racing.
And many can’t resist swigging the glorious black nectar throughout the day as they place their bets.
Indeed, 220,000 pints of Guinness are set to be drunk as over £1billion is placed in bets across four days of racing.
And SunSport exclusively revealed people will be able to pull their own pints at a one-of-a-kind bar.
However, punters may have to keep a close eye on their credit cards.
That’s because a pint of Guinness at the Cheltenham Festival costs a mind-boggling £7.50.
That makes it one of the most expensive pints of “Vitamin G”, as it’s dubbed, in the world.
The price of a drink has shot up across the UK due to various reasons like the increasing costs of shipping.

Even so, punters were shocked at seeing the price when it was first introduced in October.
It had shot up a whole 50p since last March’s Festival.
And to people’s horror, the glorious Guinness was served up in a paper cup like it was a roadside coffee.
A Cheltenham spokesperson last March said the racecourse “works hard to absorb inflationary costs.”
But “current inflation rises in relation to goods and labour” led to increases.
