    1 first pub you drank in - The Cupid, Hemel Hempstead. 16 years old. Long since demolished for road widening.
    2 last pub you visited - Beer House, Ecclesall Road, Sheffield - 20th March 2020
    3 last beer you had in a pub - Triple Point Debut US-style IPA 5.5% (cask)
    4 first beer fest visited - Can't remember
    5 last beer fest visited - Camra GBBF 2020 Winter in Birmingham (4th February)
    6 total reviews on PG – 2599 of 2452 pubs
    7 do you have to have a drink in a pub to review – I will review pubs that I've tried to have a drink in, but I'll only give a rating for a pub if I've had a drink. I also use the review box if I think it's useful to give information about a closed pub or a soon-to-be-opened pub (though the latter I will either change to a proper review or delete).
    8 have you done a Winfield 22 .nearest total in a day – 20 pubs (Alan Winfield Memorial Pub Crawl, Stapleford 5th September 2018)
    9 fav PG crawl – Newcastle under Lyme
    10 least fav PG crawl – London (bus route 38)
    11 first pub reviewed – Fox & Goose Inn, Wigley, Chesterfield 13th September 2010 (a generous 8)
    12 last pub reviewed – Uig Hotel, Isle of Skye (7) – visited last summer, review posted this week
    13 happy to drink in Wetherspoons – No - boycotting after three times being asked to pay for my beer before they would start pouring
    14 camra member - Yes
    15 should we have interior pictures of pubs - Yes
    16 is there any purpose in posting multiple pictures of a pub – Yes, but not several shots of the same view: be selective and upload your best shots. (If you've uploaded an interior shot, would you be barred from uploading an exterior too? No, I thought not.)
    17 if you had to go for a drink with one of these which one Sam,Tim,or Boris – If you mean Humphrey Smith when you say Sam, then probably him. I would only go for a drink with the other two if they were with Nigel and all three were drinking a deadly poison so I could watch them all die in agony.
    18 no cask so which one bud,fosters carling ,stella – None of them, unless I had cycled a long way on my bike to get there and there were no other pubs around, in which case I'd likely join you in a Stella
    19 cask but which one doom,pride ,pedigree or bass – Pride if it's in a Fullers pub, otherwise Bass
    20 fav beer this year – Torrside Kneel Before Grod imperial stout 9.5%, Shakespeare's, Sheffield, 12th & 13th March. Can I have another, please?

    3 last beer you had in a pub - Dark Star Hophead
    4 first beer fest visited - A CAMRA festival in the Patti Pavilion on Swansea seafront in 1998/9 - I was a cider drinker at the time, knew nothing about real ale, and was the favourite (i.e. only) customer of the lady manning the cider bar, which meant I got very generous half pint measures of all manner of evil scrumpys!
    5 last beer fest visited - Croydon Beer Festival 2020 - it was dreadful, won't be bothering next year.
    6 total reviews on PG - 2,425
    7 do you have to have a drink in a pub to review - yes, but it doesn't have to be beer/alcoholic.
    8 have you done a Winfield 22 .nearest total in a day - No - probably around 15-16 at best
    9 fav PG crawl - Liverpool for the pubs, Leeds and Pompey for the crack
    10 least fav PG crawl - Loved them all, but maybe Brighton?

    12 last pub reviewed - Denmark Arms, East Ham
    13 happy to drink in Wetherspoons - Yep
    14 camra member - Lapsed a couple of years ago
    15 should we have interior pictures of pubs - Interior, yes. Inferior, no.
    16 is there any purpose in posting multiple pictures of a pub - What Will said
    17 if you had to go for a drink with one of these which one Humphrey Smith,,Tim,or Boris - Tim, I suppose - Wouldn't last five minutes with Humph before falling foul of his swearing ban
    18 no cask so which one bud,fosters carling ,stella - These four are interchangeable to me - normally go for Guinness when faced with no cask/craft
    19 cask but which one doom,pride ,pedigree or bass - Pride, although *whisper it* I don't mind a well kept Pedigree or Bass.
    20 fav beer this year - Hasn't been a great year for beer so far. Probably Pressure Drop Tambourine Mountain at 'The Experiment' in Hackney. Best cask - Moor Stout in the Rusty Bucket, Eltham.

    Yes, it's lined up for a review, but with about 30 other pubs in the queue ahead of it!

    I did actually include Guinness but felt most would choose it as a default option so added wife beater.

    From the answers above old Wife Beater seems to be the lager of choice.Think Pride is just edging it and most striking answer is should we have interior pub shots.Definitely worth considering as practically unanimous.I wouldn't take a photo but there are some striking interiors that would enhance this site.cheers
