Regular readers will know that this blog appears to pick mercilessly on 4 things.
- Mrs RM
- People who ask for tasters
- Stafford Paul
You’ll know we only pick on the things we love (is that true? ).
And I know how much you love my attempts to get Paul to drink keg (see: Bath, Leeds, Manchester etc). Easier getting an AFC Wimbledon fan to shop at Milton Keynes IKEA.
So polite is Paul, he’ll come in a craft bar and quietly sit while we drink the evil keg.
Well, on the way to the Star & Garter we noticed this.
Craft coffee. Yum. Why had Paul kept this one quiet.
Half an hour later, after 4/6 pints, our resistance crumbled.
Candid is clearly an anagram of “did can”, the new craft drinking craze in the North Midlands.
If Paul was unhappy we weren’t drinking £2 a pint 6X in the Craft Union, he hid it well.
Quosh and I were like six year old in a sweet shop,
though I confess I was as in awe of the coffee line up as the keg pours.
Paul succumbed to the
Cloudwater coffee, we joined the communal table, and chatted to a Landlord (?) I can only describe as a gem.
No cask, as you’ll have guessed by now, so no preemptive, but an essential stop in any Stafford crawl.
Even if it is only for a long black.
