most grounds around $7.00 mid strength only, so if you are planning on having a few hit the pubs before/at lunch and after around the grounds
Agree on this. At the MCG, unless you're in a corporate box or in the MCC Members, you'll be drinking Carlton Mid, an awful drop. Cascade is slightly better, Great Northern is terrible as well. Stupidly you can buy spirits but not full-strength beer at the public bars in the ground! There are some good pubs around however, The Duke of Wellington is very popular, The Cricketers Arms on Punt Rd, The Precinct Hotel on Swan St, The Corner Hotel also on Swan St. Even the Transport Bar at Federation Square, there are plenty of options.
