There's a lot about the outsides of pubs but not a lot about the beers sold inside! Let's talk about the beers you used to drink.

Hi David
 
Sorry I was never a beer drinker though I did experiment with lots to try to find one I liked and the nearest I came to it was Watneys Red Barrel at least I think that was the name.

Phil you old joker. But compared with M&B or Ansells you might be right. There wasn't much in it...

tony armstrong (jones?), to me mild had bags more flavour than the bitters. If we're talking about Black Country ales you couldn't do better than Simpkiss or Bathams. Aahhhh...........Brierley Hill........
