    This seems to translate as zi German for 'monthly meet-up' in a pre-booked room.

    It seems that GK pubs are only selling their IPA or Abbot, presumably to maximise their profit at the expense of choice. Not a great incentive to pay a visit...

    Olde Trip? sounds like a no brainer to go for Alton fff. GK beers seem in short supply in JDW pubs so that might link in with Tris39's observations.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Not sure I understand what you mean. Your comment in another thread about a pub being "relaxed about the stupid guidance" suggests that you think this whole pandemic thing has been made up, or exaggerated, and that government responses in the UK have been over the top.

    If so, I hope you don't find out the hard way just how serious it can be.

    I don't think that this will ever end, but the problem is knowing what to do, barring the arrival of an effective inoculation which could take years. We can't sacrifice the economy and should shops et al be forced to close once more, it will send a signal that they will be allowed to open, forced to close, allowed to open, forced to close and so on, which is simply not possible. Should schools open at the expense of, say, the hospitality industry, is it better to send kids to school or put their parents out of a job? There's no easy answer, but in a radio interview the other day, the former head of Punch Taverns said that if pubs are forced to close again, around 30-40% probably won't open ever again. I'm of the opinion, despite being moderately 'vulnerable', not least having spent two weeks in hospital with pneumonia at the age of eight, that trying to hide from a virus is a bit like trying to push water uphill.
