- An Australian journalist who just wanted to get a single bottle of beer made history in the most unusual way.
- Although he was only supposed to pay $7 for the bottle, he was mistakenly charged over $70,000 for the beer.
- The incident is now being called ‘the most expensive beer in history’.
How much would you pay for a bottle of beer? One man had to pay more than $70,000 for a single bottle that he purchased in a hotel. Not surprisingly, the incident led to headlines proclaiming about “the most expensive beer in history”.
Peter Lalor is an Australian journalist covering cricket games for The Australian newspaper. The writer recently visited the Malmaison hotel in Manchester in the United Kingdom where he ordered a bottle of Deuchars IPA, which normally costs £5.50 (around $7). However, Lalor was shocked when it was revealed that he had been charged £55,315.12 (almost $71,000) for a single bottle of beer.
Lalor tweeted about his shocking experience.
According to Lalor, he already had a feeling that something was wrong so he alerted the barmaid. Nevertheless, the transaction still went through and it wasn’t until the next day that he discovered the shocking charge.
“I didn’t have my reading glasses when she presented me with a bill. I said I didn’t want a receipt and she went to leave. Something, however, made me ask: ‘How much did I just pay for that beer?’ She checked, covered her mouth, started to giggle and refused to tell me, saying only there had been a mistake and she would fix it,” Lalor wrote.
A regular bottle of beer only costs about $7
Although the barmaid immediately alerted her manager, Lalor was later told that a refund could not be done right away and that they would be in contact with him about reversing the charges.
Luckily, Lalor eventually got a refund although it took more than a week. Hopefully, he will be more careful about checking his bill before handing over his card next time.
