JOIN THE PUB TICKERS AND SEE THE WORLD (WELL, RENFREWSHIRE)

I’m just back from the new Cambridge Brew Dog, where the cask was off and I was too early for the 8% Imperial Coconut Porter.

Not sure how I’ve lived without beer that tastes like Bounty Bar

Now I feel refreshed and ready for more GBG19-to-20 cross ticking and some distant memories of the Scottish jaunt.

He’s a sharp lad, that Matthew.

I reckon I’ve a pretty good knowledge of the UK, but Duncan took me on a real tour of lesser known Renfrewshire, which will no doubt be resurrected as a separate GBG chapter next year.

Lochwinnoch

Lochwinnoch is a watersports centre, my expert guide tells me. I attempt to take notes, but it’s difficult to write and listen at the same time.

Ah, here’s an interesting looking pub.

Older than Pubmeister

Oooh look, people in casual clothes, drinking beer.  Bet I bump into that big barrel on the way to the bar.

More caps.  What is it with Scotland and caps

Ouch.

The Brown Bull looks a proper beer pub with all that local stuff, too.

Kelburn again

Cosy all-rounder, flowers on the table, sunlight streaming in. Lovely.

Just add beermat

The beer, almost certainly Kelburn, was average, and I took it into the garden to revive its spirits a bit.

At least, I think it was the pub garden.  It’s all happening here.

Best pub garden seats ?

Help yourself, Duncan would

I would have followed the path through the garden to the loch (possibly Ness), but Duncan had been waiting in the car, possibly counting moths, and I had to move on.

Seven, I think he said.

  1. “Not sure how I’ve lived without beer that tastes like Bounty Bar”

    We must all keep something for our bucket list. 🙂

    “He’s a sharp lad, that Matthew.”

    It’s partly due to his sartorial attire.

    “which will no doubt be resurrected as a separate GBG chapter next year.”

    Unless it’s embargoed?
    (I just came from Si’ latest post)

    “Older than Pubmeister

    In bull years?

    “people in casual clothes”

    Sartorially speaking.

    “What is it with Scotland and caps”

    As opposed to… flat caps?

    “Just add beermat”

    The table protector or the person?

    “and I took it into the garden to revive its spirits a bit.”

    And, if not, water a plant perhaps?

    “Best pub garden seats ?”

    I don’t fancy the ones where it appears one sits on an ashtray.

    “to the loch (possibly Ness)”

    Pfft. That’s over 100 miles away.

    “Seven, I think he said.”

    That’s further away than Loch Ness!
    (sorry, thought you said Severn)

    Cheers
