First topic message reminder :

A half of mild and a bottle of brown ale, what was that called? I don't think is was a black velvet.

I believe it was called a Black and Tan. Cider and Lager was called A Snakebite. Guinness and Cider was A Gorilas Armpit. Black Velvet not sure but I think your right Guinness and Champagne. or White Wine.

guiness and black currant ,I used to throw up after a few guiness far to rich and sickly, never mind the ruddy blackcurrant. Embarassed 
my favourite tipple in the long gone 1960's Falstaff winter warming ale made by the lamented walkers brewery of warrington.

I can remember my first pint in St Cuthberts was half a pint of bitter and a bottle of brown ale, followed by a few more.  Very Happy 

For the life of me I can't think why I drink Larger now.

8.50% ABV

It is recognised, both nationally and internationally, as one of the most famous strong ales, winning some of the industry’s most prestigious awards including World’s Best Ale.

In recent years Robinsons’ Old Tom has been named by CAMRA as Supreme Champion Winter Beer of Britain no less than three times at the National Winter Ales Festival.

I would say it is more like the Old falstaff a really dark smooth mild but very strong.
It had all the olduns in moon under water fighting after 2 or 3 pints.
Now they will only sell it in halves  Beers  of yesterday - Page 2 3893910195

Beer has always had its place in society as attested to the quotes listed below. Read and enjoy these testimonials to beer.
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." [Benjamin Franklin]
"Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drank I feel ashamed. Then I look in the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered.  It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

"24 hours a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not." [H.L. Mencken]
"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!" [George Bernard Shaw]
"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading." [Paul Hornung]
"Remember, "I" before "E", except in Budweiser." [Professor Irwin Corey]
Of course who forget the best one of all taken from the 80s hit show "Cheers."
One night at Cheers, Cliff Clavin explained the "Buffalo Theory" to his buddy Norm:

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine! That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

I LOVE Gold Label Barley Wine, Our Joseph! A Black Velvet was officially Guinness and Champagne but most people mixed Guinness and Cider. A Snakebite was Lager and Cider. So you were from Ince, raymyjamie? Do you remember The Long-Neck, (Anderton Arms)? My Mam used to drink Magee's Oatmeal Stout in there!

Hello Irene.

Yes, I remember the Long Neck and went in a few times.

I wasn't much of a drinker till I got married (LOL Laughing that says a lot about marriage).

We lived in Bird St., not a million miles away.

If memory serves, I think you posted on WW that you lived opposite the Long Neck on Ince Green Lane.

"Top Hat was sold in the Squirrel Pub, Ince. "

Sadly gone the way of dozens of local pubs which have closed down

due to cheap Supermarket drink offers.
