VINYL TAP

Matthew had promised me a “scary tour” of his ‘hood.  Plungington is lively, but can I politely suggest that Matt has never worn that paisley shirt within sight of Maidenhead Cons Club.

Not the most complex half-hour walk in history to GBG newbie No.3, the attractively named Plunginton, but on the way I got the sort of domestic detail normally only heard on BRAPA trips to Leigh and Atherton.

And then Matthew made me stop for a pre-emptive tick.  “But I don’t do pre-emptive ticks Matthew !

But Vinyl Tap has “BYO vinyl”, including some real rarities you can buy,

Little known Scandi-pop and folk weirdness

and fun games it’s hard to say correctly after five pints,

Not worth THAT much, says our expert.

Sure, it’s a micro, but nearly All Human (Preston) Life was here, apart from the sub-category you see in Pop !

That’s a plant, not a person in a bottle

But was any of that life playing the cask lottery ?, or just decking Moretti while they shouted over AC/DC.

Well, the BrewYork was excellent (NBSS 3.5), and you’ll recall how dismissive I was of the beer at their Tap.  Being run by the same folk as the Moorbrook clearly helps.

If you had to stand up you might hate it, I think I loved it.

Possibly the handwash swung it.

LUXURY Pearlescent – yum

Could have stayed longer, but we didn’t want to miss staring at/being stared at by diners in the Plungington, and there’s a video from there to come.

  1. Like the idea of Paisley shorts. Noticed Vinyl Tap in Ale Cry plus a new micro called Plugs and Taps. Also new micros in Higher Walton and Bamber Bridge. Truly a never ending pub crawl as someone notable once called it.

    1. All the Fenland hopsters wear Paisley shorts to pick pumpkins. Good name for a new blog, Alan wouldn’t mind ! Yes, the micro expansion continues unchecked in Lancashire, perhaps unsurprisingly. Vinyl Tap on its 3rd name in18 months, hard to keep up.
