The shorter form of writing Eighty Shilling, which is a measurement of the quality of beer. Eighty shilling is a good beer, with 60/- being at the opposite end of the scale (and quite foul in my opinion) and 70/- being the one in the middle.

The naming system comes from the cost of an barrel of the substance in old money.
