Peter Lalor didn't bother to check the bill and gave his card to make the transaction.

Lalor who works as chief cricket writer and beer editor at The Australian, took to Twitter to share the ordeal. The incident took place at the Malmaison hotel, after a day of watching the Ashes cricket series at Old Trafford.

"See this beer? That is the most expensive beer in history," Lalor wrote on Twitter with a photo of a beer from Scottish brewery Caledonian.

"I asked a young barman if he had anything that was not an American craft beer or Eurolager," he wrote. "I wanted something a little British."
