A FIVERS WORTH OF COUGH CANDY IN BROCKHURST

Short posts as I’m on the move, and my battery is dropping fast.

On my drive into Gosport this morning I saw some stunning pub porn I knew you’d want to see. ..

That one is open.

The Royal Oak and whatever the Premier was are long dead. #pubmuderers

Since I’d stopped, I found the obligatory enthusiastic sweet shop and asked for a fivers worth of cough candy.

Outside, the old boy said “You first, Squire”.

Which raises 3 questions.

Which squire do I most look like?

Does “fivers worth” need an apostrophe?

Where on earth is Brockworth?

      1. You are a tease Martin, especially as you know I will strongly disagree with that assessment. You won’t find any brewers of that opinion either!

        So in the spirit of returning the wind-up, good beer is to be appreciated and enjoyed – preferably in the company of friends and like-minded people. It is not some cheap commodity intended to be consumed in swift halves, before rushing off to the next “tick.” Ouch!! 😉

  1. That “Blake’s Ales & Stout From The Wood” suggests that much Hampshire beer by the mid 1920s was from metal casks which I wouldn’t have expected.
