More live blogging from North Wales, where Mrs RM has just conquered Snowdon.
No Bass in the cafe at the top, so a wasted journey, but one less place to cross off the list of possible Bass venues.
Mrs RM had been in training for the ascent for some hours, culminating in a four pints and pizza session last night.
To be fair, we also walked the Conwy walls.
The walk along the chimney pots is gorgeous, and perfect for reminding you where the pubs are.
Our first post-Bass pints were at the Bank, a fairly convincing attempt to bring craft over the walls.
By coincidence, it’s a bank conversion, with the Prosecco still locked away in the vaults.
We stuck to Heavy Industry and Beavertown.
Full marks to the barman who didn’t flinch when I asked which cask was selling quickest, and gave me step by step directions to the Heavy Industry brewery. Cool, foamy, lacings, NBSS 4.
I sense that Coldwell chap would like this place, if he hasn’t already blogged about it.
But pubs aren’t about beer. They played “In an English country garden”‘and “Surfin USA” side by side.
The only other customers were a couple of retired Man City fans (try it folks) who stepped in off the train for a San Miguel.
Top place, with more to come.
