Back to my favourite subjects. Cask quality, Spoons and those CAMRA discounts we’ve been fighting so hard for since 1971.
The Resolution is very much the 3rd Spoons in Middlesbrough, the one that never makes the Beer Guide, the one the ladies singing “I Touch Myself” move onto at 11pm.
As you can see, it’s FUN FUN FUN.
No pretense in the cask line-up.
Those of you with a degree in Maths and an ability to see through pints will deduce I paid £1.29 for my Double Maxim here, making the Discovery a rip off.
Except that this was foamy and uninspiring (NBSS 2.5). The Spoons longpull seen in many places probably ran to 20 ft here.
I reckon my last 10 pints in Spoons have produced 2 of GBG standard. And they get shabbier by the year.
No karaoke, either.
Still, one less voucher to burn in 2 days time.
So for the late night aimless stroll.
Love the ‘Boro as I might, it’s being left behind by Stockton with its banked Bass and Cloudwater and fountains.
Even the famed new bars were a bit quiet.
And you’ll have seen this art on Pubmeister.
I should have popped in one micro, probably the Infant Hercules, but I just didn’t have the heart.
And my Guisborough Chinese was getting cold.
