    I usually drink soft drinks when out, apart from date night when we end up having 2 for 1 cocktails. I am not a real ale fan or a wine snob, strangely as I am WSET qualified. I couldn't believe I was being charged £4.50 :mad: for a bottle of Corona earlier in the week.

  2. It was vintage Corona though, the brand stropped trading in the late 1990s, what flavour was it? :) P.

    Sadly it wasn't Cherryade but the Mexican beer that requires a slice of lime.

    I do. I am a huge real ale/craft beer fan (and avid CAMRA member), so frequent local drinking establishments to quaff some rather fine beer.

    We have a couple of craft vendors in Stoke-on-Trent (Bottlecraft and Otters Tears), both operate a small bar and take away option, and a few really nice pubs offering craft beer and real ale aplenty (London Road Ale House and Bridge Street Ale House). We're spoiled, and I love it, even though it does cost me more than a trip to say Wetherspoons.
     
  5. Apart from wine, I always drink out... Not having a bottle of Islay malt whisky at home is good for me...:D

    Small world, I was in the Bridge on Wednesday night. It's refreshing to go in somewhere where you can have a decent conversation but still has a welcoming atmosphere. Too many pubs have gone down the piped music and microwaved pies route for me. God I'm getting old......

    Hoegaarden £3.50 a bottle - 250ml tonight, still seems high. I knew I should have gone for the Cristal :).

    Aye it is indeed buddy! I don't get down to the Bridge as often as I'd like, but as and when I can, I get in there (and the Hop Inn and Greyhound whilst I'm down that way).

    I spent another small fortune in Otters Tears on Friday, I came away with these (in duplicate for some, with some not photographed as they were not new beers to try, plus some more glassware):
