Tonight I witnessed a great way to get a free beer. I was in a small town pub with my friend Leon who ordered a pint of Fosters. The barmaid had slightly more than half-filled the glass when the barrel ran out. She said she’d have to go and get another keg and came back sometime later to tell us there wasn’t one – so she offered Leon the half-pint she’d pulled for free. Now that’s what I call a good price for a lager! And of course a stout drinker like me wouldn’t give an XXX for a more expensive lager! Although there are easier ways to get free beers – like going to certain art openings and other cultural events – it’s always nice to get a drink on the house in a bar you’ve never been to before!
And while you’re at it don’t forget to check – www.stewarthomesociety.org – you know it makes (no) sense!

You must have had a good night in the pub because this is way shorter than your usual posts… Wonder how many pints this was written on????

We wouldn’t give an XXX for any other kind of lager at Howards End!

There’s nothing like sploshing about in beer – and if you get it for free even better!

It’s probably easier to get free beer in pubs in small towns than bars in big cities – but big cities also have way more free beer if you know where to get it….

Where have all the lager louts gone?

anyone know any good anagrams you can make out of ‘beer’ or even ‘free beer’?

The Scottish govermenment are introducing a minimum price per unit of alcohol – which might mean no more free beer north o’ the border (although hopefully the minimum price won’t apply if the booze is given away)…..

You can never step into the same sea of drunkenness twice….

In Finland we prefer a bird’s nest of drunkenness to a sea of drunkenness!
