A tenner for a beer... and you can't drink it yet!
A tenner for a bottle of ale sounds a lot but Sussex brewers King and Barnes have only created 1000 individually numbered bottles of their special Millennium Ale.
The beer packs a powerful punch at 9.5 per cent proof - though there is a catch.
They all contain a little yeast which means they won't be ready to drink until the Millennium arrives.
But at least 28-year-old Oddbins assistant Martine Healy, above, from Kelvin Bridge showed enough bottle to get her hands on the brew in plenty of time.
