A disparity that has me flummoxed!

Now can I say at the outset, I don't want to create a heated debate.

However, I still get a tad perplexed on the price of some keg beers. I don't mind paying a premium for a keg beer. But how the firkin heck do you get a disparity of £2.20 for the same keg beverage?

Let me explain. I reviewed a pub recently for a local newspaper. It was in Skipton. A Market Town Taverns establishment, namely, the Narrow Boat.

Okay, Skipton tends to be a tad pricey, in comparison to other towns in Yorkshire. However, how do you get a disparity of £2.20 for Beavertown, Gamma Ray?

The Gamma Ray priced at £3.50 is at a bar in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. It is fair to say they are two similar market towns for beer prices.

Okay, the bar in Hebden Bridge has perhaps got a good deal. But £2.20 disparity, in two similar towns in Yorkshire?

I'm flummoxed! Can someone explain. I would appreciate your comments, views, opinions etc.
