One left in Burton. As Matt says;

there’s plenty of good pubs here, including The Dog. Not sure about the appeal of 11 handpulls, mind.

I only saw one Pedi pump on the bars at the Leopard and the Anchor.

Once I’m sure that Life After Football has been in I’ll do those next visit.

And I’ll have to come back. Late opening meant I couldn’t revisit the Coopers; perhaps you only do it with a curry.

Today I would only have time for a half in the Weighbridge micro across from the station (and next door to the Ibis).

You always wonder what’s coming in a micro, but this is cosy, warm (except behind the bar, apparently) and friendly.

Never heard of their Muirhouse beers, but the Tick Tock was a cool and crispy (NBSS 3.5) gem.

And with locals discussing the defosting of the steak and ale pie over trad pub games it felt less micro, more small pub.

Can’t say fairer than that.


    1. And when Dave and I met you in Burton we stepped into the Leopard to have a look. A very quick look. Then on to Coopers. If my memory is accurate.

  1. I’m not sure I’ve had Muirhouse Tick Tock 4.0%, but Muirhouse Tick Tock Boom 4.5% is a cracking beer. I may have to call in to the Weighbridge next time I’m in Burton (if they’re open – I see they’re closed Mon/Tue, opening at 5pm Wed/Thu, 4pm Fri)), and see which is on. If both, I might even have a half of each to make a tasting session out of them.
