You'll find that bars in cities like Valencia, Barcelona, Madrid etc have a surcharge for service on terrazas. Part of it is because they have to pay a large license fee to the council, sometimes several thousand Euros per month I don't know what the Plaza Mayor fee to the council is, but the beers there certainly aren't cheap (although perhaps not 18 pounds for 2 beers).
