That's a beer I'd really like to try but I've never seen it. The name makes me think it would taste like cherry bakewells.
The Society Room on West George (?) St often has it. Horrible pub though.

I may already be drunk by the time I get to this. If I get there at all.

Re: Glasgow

Glasgows! Where do you look for job vacancies? I pretty much only check s1jobs.com and The Herald on a Friday but neither are yielding much of interest. s1jobs is really dire, isn't it? I think the s must stand for shit. it's all full of ads for call centres, recruitment consultants and business an...

Pollokshields is pretty near to the BBC if you go via Shields Road rather than into the city centre and out west again. 10 minute bike ride.

I don't finish work until 6 either but I promise I'll run, run like the wind to be there soon after. And we can drink to our friends in the North and to a future of state-owned railways that don't punish us for wanting to be in the pub with each other without having to plan it six months in advance...
