The Weekend Beer & Music Thread


Well-known member
Afternoon folks, hope it's been a good week for all. Three points against Watford last week were very welcome, especially after the disappointment of the Mackem game. Great performance and a well deserved three points plus the subsequent additions of both Dan Barlaser and Aaron Ramsay should hopefully help us stay very much in the play off picture at least for the rest of the season. Three points at home to Blackpool tomorrow would be a great way to cement ourselves in there.

Anyhoooo... It's the weekend or just about anyway, so get us started I can recommend a fantastic local porter if you're into that stuff. It's a very, very nice drink and on the rare occasion I see it on tap I always indulge in a pint. I give you the very lovely Ouseburn Porter.


As we're playing Blackpool tomorrow I thought I'd stick a track from The Cure on to get us underway given that Robert Smith was born there. For a double whammy, it's Friday and I'm in love (with Michael Carrick, but don't tell the Mrs!!!)

Happy weekend folks.

My first Friday beer of the year after January abstinence. On the Hazy Janes (Brew Dog) then a couple Bumbu Rums after.

Out early tomorrow for the match with the lads and having a few afterwards so taking it easy tonight!
I had no idea Robert Smith was born in Blackpool 🤷🏻‍♂️

But in the same vein I’ll put forward this one which is an old 80’s track from another Blackpool artist

I’ll stick to drinking Malbec
I'm another one who had no idea that Robert Smith was born in Blackpool. I'm a big fan of The Cure, so I should've known that. I feel embarrassed now.
