Not just one of the best tracks from one of the best albums of 1982 produced by a Brummie,
but the highlight of my third tick on the Greater Brighton Tickathon.
In truth, the Harvey’s Old was the only highlight of Guide newbie the Maris & Otter,
virtually dead at 3pm and with little of the character of the Poet down the road.
I was charged a fiver for the half initially, and had to do that “Is that right ? For a half ?” dance when you’re not absolutely certain that a pint in Brighton isn’t a tenner now.
Cool and rich, the beer (NBSS 3.5) almost redeemed a soundtrack of “You Oughta Know“, “Weather With You” and this EMO classic;
Yes, good riddance indeed.
Embarrassingly, I left my mobile phone on the bar and had to pop back for it.
Only 10 minutes to my last tick, passing the odd corker of a pub or two,
but it’s the Georgian housing that makes Brighton,
and the street art.
Never mind the art, what’s this big stick in the ground ?
And is there a new micro at the top ?
One thought on “OLD”
Shame they didn’t have Harvey’s bitter on at Maris & Otter. You could have had a half-and-half mix of Old and Bitter, known as a Mother-in-law (cringe!)
I had one at The Lord Nelson in Brighton a couple of weeks ago and it was greater than the sum of its parts, absolutely superb.
