    Do the cans not fall out when she puts her head down?

    ^ Yeah that is a problem.

    Without an opposable thumb Anna really struggles with the zip.

    We're you not in the UK in the 90's, with Carling Premier and Caffreys on tap at the local?
    I had a great Euro 96 on the stuff.

    Not quite what I imagined and this guy is pretty accurate tbh. But it does go down easy

    Fucking brilliant that Caffreys back then and a 5 plus % kick too if I remember correctly (I often don't). I don't think you can find it anymore, can you? Euro 96 was spent through a haze of that, Stella and Boddies Gold.

    There'd have to be some fucking beer drought to get me on Carling though.

    Euro 96 was our first time getting served in the pub (the one that didn't give a sheet about ages.)

    Was 2.15 a pint. A tenner would get 4 pints and 2 packets of bacon fries. With a few cans outside the snooker club first. Happy days. Err, nights.

    I have never drunk either Carling or Caffreys and I don't recall seeing it in any of the pubs I went to in the 90s (or the few pubs I went to in the 2000s for that matter).

    Is it popular in your neck of the woods, Dill?

    Caffreys was the popular pint back in the late nineties.

    I fondly remember a session on it at a racecourse and the old man driving me back with my head out the window, liquid laughing all the way.

    This isn't the dinner thread, Stumpy.

    I was brought up to keep drink and food separate.

    A couple early evening, and then in to dinner. Preferably with colour coordinated drinkware.

    I fully agree. The orange peel and cherry hit the trash. They are for aroma and smell but you can't make an old fashion without them. It's unheard of.

    Nice flower glass btw. So are you drinking Leo, Frosty whatever that is and Ya Dong?

    Are you talking of the 1890's Nev or are you Scottish?

    It's been the UK's best selling lager since the 1970's

    I remember the Carling Ice Cold too, which wasn't very nice outside of summer.


    In the 1970s and 80s, Carling Black Label sales were driven to great heights, due partly to increased advertising support, in particular the classic "I bet he drinks" series of advertisements, and partly with the launch of Carling Black Label in cans. Cans were important to Carling's success as they helped open up the "take home" market.[3]

    The "I bet he drinks" series of ads showed someone doing something cool, clever or difficult, and having a bystander say "I bet he drinks Carling Black Label". With the help of this advertising campaign, it became Britain's best-selling brand of beer in 1971. In the 1980s, many of the adverts featured comedians Mark Arden and Stephen Frost, also known as The Oblivion Boys, delivering the classic punchline. One of the advertisements in the series, Dambusters from 1989, was a parody of the 1955 film of the same name, and was ranked at number 12 on ITV's list of the "Best Ever Ads" in 2005,[4] and at number 17 on Channel 4's list of the "100 Greatest TV Ads" in 2000.[5] Campaign Live also ranked it at number 5 in their list of the "Top 10 Funniest TV Ads of All Time" in 2008.[6]

    Carling has remained Britain's best selling beer since 1985. 'Black Label' has been dropped from the brand name and logo in Britain since 1997.[3]

    If you've never seen Carling in a UK pub then you've never been in a UK pub

    Any Ale is better than a pint of gazzy Carling.

    Having said that, I will have a pint with a lemonade top on a hot Summers afternoon.
    Sometimes I've been known to add a dash of lime cordial to a pint of cold carling

    I bet Dill is impressed now!


    Btw I was just looking for my Carling glass and it appears to have vanished, is there no honour among glass thieves????

    Thought I would give this a spin as somebody recommended it on the Whisky thread.

    What are you drinking today?-img_20221108_235847-jpg

    It has a curious medicinal bouquet.

    I might try rubbing some on my chest if I manage to snag one of the new Covid-19 variants.
