Late evening bus change swift half visit. Still scurrilously displaying a mocked up fizz BrewDog Punk IPA pumpclip on one of the handpumps.

Late evening bus change visit. Good chat with a fellow who had not voted today and told me why in full and frank tones. Sad to see that in trying to promote fizz BrewDog Punk IPA the pub has resorted to misleadingly mock up a pumpclip on one of the handpumps.

Late evening bus change visit. The ales range was influenced by the Meet the Brewer session here yesterday.
