    Me too, so I made a detour on my way to the game in Luton last night (yes, I know London is not on the way to Luton from Sheffield, but, you know...) but the Stingo had sold out in both the Princess Louise and the Cheshire Cheese.

    Why isn't it available in Yorkshire, dammit?

    After a few days awaiting further supplies from Tadcaster, it's now back on in the Chandos.

    Sad state of affairs when the locals cant club together to try a pint of an 8.0 beer but probably true.

    Off topic I'm afraid - I don't know if you really are interested in The Clash, but there's an exhibition on at the Museum of London: https://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/mu...40-years-clash
