I'm not really a great one for the pubs but I do enjoy the odd visit from time to time. Someone sent me a funny picture of your first drink after lockdown and it was a guy wrestling with a huge pint like glass and ever since I've been really looking forward to getting that first drink. I think I'd probably pay a bit more if I'm honest.
I don't want a "safe" pint in the pub .... i want a pint in the pub ... who are these people that lead "safe" lives .... i've never met one ...
Funny thing, I went back and added the word "safe" to make sure I got a straight answer instead of the usual pedantry. :okay:

I think bottled beer will be the 'safe' bet for the first week so that you don't get palmed off with the slop that has been sitting in a barrel or the lines for the past few months.

The real ale barrels would of gone off weeks ago and been put down the drains.
Maybe some Lagers might of kept a bit better, but would be coming up to their limit now.

In my youth I worked behind a bar and would regularly clean the lines and circulate the stock of barrels in the cellar to ensure nothing went out of date or tasted bad but, I have been in many pubs who don't give a toss, especially those more likely to have mainly passing trade than regulars.

Obviously I can't speak for all but locals here have been collecting in their own pots scince the lockdown began so unlikely any went off round here.

Or paying a fiver a pint and sitting in a noisy overcrowded pub garden listening to load of yobs swearing when you could sit in your garden at home drinking a very pleasant glass of Hobgoblin which cost £1.25 from Aldi.
I'm not really a Pub or "people person" anymore, garden every time for me!.

BBQ on the go is an added bonus..
