Subject: RE: BS: Mudcat Tavern Spring Clean

Scrump, just call me Ming. I can remember beer at 1/6d a pint, good stuff too. That was at the time the fizzy stuff started to appear but we didn't drink it, not at 1/9d!!

Shall we start at £5/pint for a vintage cooking bitter?


OK Ming, but as long as we don't have to pay those prices here ourselves. I thought the ale was free in this boozer?

1/6 is the cheapest I remember too, but at the time that was cheaper than average. 2 bob was more typical. This was the late 1960s.

And in them days, I sometimes used to drink shandy because it was cheaper than beer. I was shocked when I went to London and found in some pubs they charged more for shandy, because of the time it took to pour out. I never drink shandy these days though, it's too sweet for me.

Hmmm, Friday lunchtime... time for a pint I think. All this typing makes me thirsty. I'll start with summat light I think. What about a pint of 1970s Young's 'Ordinary' Bitter, brewed in Wandsworth as the Good Lord intended, to the 1970s recipe, long before the Young's accountants decreed that it should be dumbed down to give it broader appeal? [I've heard some pretty uncomplimentary comments about the new Bedford version of it too :-( ]

...Cheers!

Sorry for delay, only just got back here.

I was introduced to the chestnut brew of my own home town.

hey that's interesting LTS - I never saw a beer made from chestnuts before.

...I'll get me coat. After I reply to this:

I think we should start up a virtual beer off selling only ales from the past. Wonder if Paypal would accept proper £sd on their system.

Good idea Mingulay at work (or may I call you Maw for short?). But I think we might as well charge modern prices for these vintage ales, not give them away at silly 1970s prices (Aagh! I remember when beer went up to 30p a pint in one pub and I thought it was a ripoff!). In fact, we should charge more. Vintage wines go up in value every year, so why not ale?

Although, in 1976, I was 12 and had reached only the heady delights of Babycham, it would only be a mere 6 years before I was introduced to the chestnut brew of my own home town.

Don't bother LTS, get the Cat Litter Cleaner you just happen to have employed, to empty the litter tray for you. Then you can relax and enjoy your drink.

Talking of drink... I think I'll have a pint of original Eldridge Pope (Dorchester), 1976 recipe, draught Royal Oak, please.

Glad to see you serve it straight from the cask by gravity dispense.

Lovely stuff... cheers! Good idea to stock all these legendary ales, no longer obtainable anywhere else.

I just happened to pass Mingulay's boat while taking a short cut up the canal and thought I'd go pay a visit. Fine welcome indeed!! Anyone would think that seeing a sqid suddenly appear was unusual in this day and age.

Mingulay, if you wouldn't mind old chap, I seem to have misplaced a tentacle somewhere, probably in your bilge. Wondered if you could have a little look for me?

You now have me drooling big time. I was once the proud owner of 2 dozen Hardy Ales and not one of them opened. They disappeared in a move 20 years ago and would have been nicely matured by now.

Still reduces me to tears. Just have to settle for a pint of Batemens XXXB instead.

Never did get to open the Pinot - picked up a 6'4" Bavarian at 1.15am and got him to bed at about 2am. As we left at 8.30am later that morning, we didn't get time to drink it. I will rectify that shortly.

Of course there was that unfortunate incident of the Pterydactyl that followed me back to Warwickshire, but that was in 1586 and it ran afoul of a herd of wild hay bales.

NO one noticed it except the ratcatcher. And he was drunk, so no one paid him never mind.

This weekend on British Telly there is a new "adventure" programme starting. It is called Primeval and would appear to based around a rift in time letting dinosaurs and the like escape into modern day England.
It's not the result of your "shopping" trips is it?

If not, would you like to forward us a list of beasts you would like to try, and I'll keep an eye out for them...

It's spring cleaning time in the tavern kitchen as well. There's a big pot of soup/stew simmering; and a casserole or ten in the oven. If someone's a bit peckish I can reheat the brontosaurus ribs, but I don't think there's any sauce left to go with them.

And I had to toss the elasmosaurus. It was definately "off"

Liz, maybe we should hire the squid to come in and clear out clutter for us? All of those arms should allow for effective multi-tasking. I have a couch and a table that are the match of what you describe. (Clean laundry dumped on the couch for folding, table has accumulation of mail and unread newspapers).

Let's start the weekend early--I'll order a tray of something savory and a California zinfandel to wash it down. I wonder if MMario is cooking up anything out back?

They are fairly new concepts and now of course, my drawers don't shut. I don't think I've ever had ALL of my clothes (except the ones I'm actually wearing now) clean and ironed all at the same time.

Clearing the table is easy... clearing the stuff off the sofa isn't.

Another hour or so and my recalcitrant guest will be here so line me up a pinot for then!
