    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?
    11-first pub reviewed - Royal Standard, Croydon
    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.
    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

    1. Presuming you mean alcohol, I think it was probably the Forresters, Guildford
    2. The Express, Crewe
    3. Wadworth's Horizon
    4. Farnham Maltings, late 1970s
    5. Pig's Ear, Dec 2019
    6. 2194
    7. Nearly always, but odd exceptions (eg keg-only restaurant bar with no-one serving)
    8. Certainly over 20 in a day, but proudest was 17 in an evening session (when we used to have afternoon closing)
    9. Portsmouth (possibly biased!)
    10. Manchester (only because it rained)
    11. The Regent, Walton on Thames
    12. The Imperial, Rhyl
    13. yes
    14. yes
    15. yes
    16. absolutely: different views can be very different, and I like to see notable features recorded
    17. Tim, provided he was not allowed to mention the EU
    18. Fosters, if forced
    19. Lots of 'depends on', but probably Bass
    20. Facer's Mountain Mild
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Seems to be some more confusion going on here.

    There are thousand upon thousands of interior pictures on PuG, in fact most with interesting or historic interiors have them, they're just not shown on the front page.

    No confusion this end.

    As an additional question, if people can remember where they were, where did people celebrate all-day and all-day Sunday openings? Taking place on the actual change-over day in question:

    All day: Marquis of Granby

    Sunday opening: The Sydney Arms when it was trading under it's original name of the Wellesley and was a slightly down-at-heel boozer from which I am technically banned - after over 30 years!

    1 first pub you drank in - The Country Girl, 14 onwards. Barmaid very pissed off when I presented ID saying I was 18 years later. Prince of Orange was a lager and black as a child.
    2 last pub you visited - The Anchor, Bristol.
    3 last beer you had in a pub- Carling.
    4 first beer fest visited - I went to Worcester BF a few years ago
    5 last beer fest visited - As above...
    6 total reviews on PG - 360 but some reviews are updates.
    7do you have to have a drink in a pub to review -yes, I also think you actually need to have a pint rather than a half.
    8 have you done a Winfield 22 .nearest total in a day -I did a Winfield with the great man himself with 1/2 in nearly all the pubs. I normally do 17 pints when visiting a town based on ticking over real ale quality.
    9 fav PG crawl-Bristol only one I've been on.
    10 least fav PG crawl - Only been on one.
    11-first pub reviewed -Think mine relate to a reopening rather than an actual review but back in about 2012.
    12 last pub reviewed -No idea something in Wales at a guess.
    13 happy to drink in Wetherspoons-yes
    14 camra member- No my dad is though, not sure what that brings to the table.
    15should we have interior pictures of pubs- yes if they warrant it.
    16 is there any purpose in posting multiple pictures of a pub- Different angles show a different perspectives. Better than a bus window 8 miles away.
    17if you had to go for a drink with one of these which one Humphrey Smith,,Tim,or Boris - Boris
    18 no cask so which one bud,fosters carling ,stella -Carling obviously as that's what keeps me alive.
    19 cask but which one doom,pride ,pedigree or bass - Probably Bass
    20 fav beer this year- I drank some weird IPA that didn't make me vomit.
    cheers hope you respond.

    Long time ago and I can't remember when it was 1988 or 1995? Either way if it was a Sunday it will have been one of these pubs

    The Abbey Hotel
    The Tudor Rose
    Dog & Crook

    I don't remember any actual celebrations just sinking more ale than usual.
    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.

    Unaware of this.
