TIME FOR A NETTLE PORTER & PORK SCRATCHINGS IN FIERCE

Aberdeen is one of the top 10 great pub cities in the UK. No, really.

I had four (not three) new GBG entries to visit since my pre Covid trip, and other Temptations (not those ones) lay on every corner.

The Grampians are home to one of the UK’s top craft breweries, and I interrupted the cask with a trip to Fierce to make Blackpool Jane jealous.

More people here than in the Brewdog flagship round the corner,

and I only dithered for seven (7) seconds before picking the Nettle Porter.

Or was it a sour ?

I didn’t have sour expert Mrs RM there to tell me definitively.

Cutting edge music from Modest Mouse, whose “Shit in your cut” will not be making the Royal Variety Performance.

I love the mixed crowd that Fierce gets, in Aberdeen and Manchester, and the local tat is quality.

OK, the seating isn’t classic, but the buzz is enough to persuade you to stay for a hazy IPA and pork scratchings.

Perfect food matching, though worryingly while the packet says “Black Country” the contact address is Hemel Hempstead.

    Odd, as their registered address at Companies House is in Cirencester. Suppose that is an equal level of non-Black Countryism.

      1. I started to think what the likely candidates might be and then got stuck on whether they were towns or cities, so I completely understand!

      2. Suspect retiredmartin’s top 10 pub cities may be as abstract & flexible a concept as his Top 100 Pubs 😁.
