Probably the most expensive beer in the world

A guest from Australia bought what might be the most expensive beer in the world at a hotel bar in Manchester, England. As recommended by the bar staff, the man had ordered a bottle of a Scottish IPA.

However, due to a typo by an inexperienced service worker, instead of the actual 5.5 pounds, the incredible sum of 55,000 pounds (about 60,000 euros) was debited from the guest's account. In addition, according to various media reports, the bank charged a transaction fee of around 2,000 pounds.

Although the error was discovered in the bar, the customer still had to be patient. It took nine days before he was reimbursed for his beer. The bar apologized to the guest and announced to offer the Australian a free beer during his next visit.
