I'd likely get stabbed venturing outside Highgate. I've heard that London is not safe
Totes yumtus for sure! Sampled it at Indie Craft Beer in Kendal last month (#Tryanuary)...thoroughly enjoyed asking for a half of the middle.
I drank at 'London's first cooperatively owned pub yesterday, the Ivy House, Nunhead, SE15. While getting a round in I had to order a half of Pint. Oi, Marble, Pint is a daft name for a beer!
Seeing as I'm up north, the next few beers may have a North theme. This is a North Riding Tiramisu Porter, and very tasty too!
Northern Monk "Malt" brut IPA named Whiplash. No car journey should end without one....
Because I'm up north, I have to be hard. So hard I'm having a cold bath ...
All Hands Brewing Co. Cream Ale....which to you and me is sorta like a decent bitter very much in the Boddingtons style. Nice and undemanding on a boiling hot day. AUD8 a pint (about £4.50) on happy hour. I've kinda got used to Aussie pricing so that sounds cheap
Brew on the premises and have a decent range and the place is rammed
"Half a pint" or "a pint"....
...sounds perfectly normal to me.
This is the beer that nearly landed them in court when a (disgruntled) customer reported them to trading-standards because the cans are 500ml
Trading standards said they would not take any action but Marble ought to reconsider the name.
Now if you buy this beer in a can it's called "Metric"; other names were considered:
My suggestion was "Five-hundred-five-hundred-and-sixty-eighths-of-a-pint" but that wouldn't fit on the can.
Haha must be the Mancunian sense of humour ...like calling your band The The. My favourite beer name of 2019 so far is Drop Kick Me Jesus from Tempest (they're based in the Scottish Borders near Gala), a most agreeable sour IPA (or hoppy sour). I suggested them to the guys in Fell Bar Kendal as a brewery they should have on tap more often.
A fox's hat....
Comin atcha outta Nuneaton!
Travels well, actually not that far as I'm in the Peak District this week..
6.5% hazelnut stout, I paid the price downed 5 pints.
I have been informed Dark star - coconut stout.
Plub Porter is on.. ..
Drop Kick Me Jess is a country song by Bobby Bare!
Separate names with a comma.
