That's the problem with pubs that are tied to a chain or a brewery. Make no effort, pub goes under. make a ton of effort, get the punters in and the tills ringing and they just up the rent accordingly. Hence why landlords tend to stay in pubs till the rent review period then move one when the brewery screws them. You also are more often than not tied to buying EVERYTHING from the brewery. So that barrel of fosters you could get on the open market for $80 will cost you $130 from the brewery. Same goes for soda, cordials, etc etc.
You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.
