Beers of yesterday

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.

What a dope I am Mester Joseph.

I've mixed it up with the one that was near Varty's Funeral place.

I think it was The Fox, anyroad, that's the one that's shut down.

Yes it was, Ray, gone forever.

Howdo Gassey, aye, Th'engine was one of the best pints around at one time, only a little pub in comparison, but what an atmosphere. Always put a good do on at pastimes, New Year and the like. Some of them big pit men didn't mind a fight either if anyone started to get stroppy.

I returned from Canada after about 8 years in 1973 and couldn't wait for a pint of best British. So, I went to the Travellers Rest in Pem (Orrell for Tonks) and supped a pint of bitter.....

Bloody awful.....

At the time I didn't realise that different pubs looked after their ale in differing ways.

The bitter tasted like soap/dish water and I was so surprised as I had this image of a beautiful pint in England.

I have learned since.... drunken drunken drunken

Tommy reckoned it was because they were used to Greenall Whitley pubs and their bitter was so bad.

Ah the memories.   Laughing 


Greenall Whitley was a good pint if - and this is the important bit - you could find the right pub. The Forresters at Almond Brook was one such.
