Moving on from the BrewDog bar, where the Punk music selection was a Punk version of 500 Miles and Green Day, clearly the original punks.
Mrs RM is up in Edinburgh for the Festival (not the real one) and BrewDog should make sure she doesn’t get to their punk karaoke night.
I walked past the Caley Picture House, where several of you have mentioned the Deuchars today.
It was quite nice, clean loos and all, but they had Deuchars with that frankly dreadful new blue pump clip.
I know it’s childish but I wanted the original pump clip.
Then I remembered where I last had a great Deuchars,
Regular readers will remembered Mrs RM’s guest Pint post from the Oxford last year.
Some great photos in that post, Mrs RM. No NBSS score, though.
A year or so on, it gets an NBSS 3.5 from me. Foamy, complex, beery.
But that’s not really why you come here.
It’s a Proper Pub,where all sort of folk go to drink. Mates, bemused whispering couples, loners, the odd tourist on the Rebus trail.
I saw 6 pints of Deuchars pulled while I was standing at the bar. Not sure I could say that about any other pub in the last year.
Classic seating, banter about emigrating cousins, the “19th Hole” and tricks to get upgrades on British Airways.
As is Deuchars IPA, still. Just about.
