The Burnley Bonus Beers

#1

I was never coming to the Burnley game. I type these words from my bolthole in Kilkeel, where I was fully expecting to spend every night until Thursday next week toiling at the grindstone. The thing has been postponed, meaning that I travel home on Thursday, and will be able to take up my usual seat on Sunday.

Every beer will therefore be a beer I was never supposed to have. Bonus beers. Burnley Bonus Beers.

Where we going?


#2

4pm kick off so a good opportunity to do a couple of pubs. Bookshop and Rockstone? South Western afters?


#3

I’m driving down on the Sunday morning. Should hit Southampton around 11am. Can be out shortly afterwards.


#4

I’ll be there, wherever there may happen to be. Liking the Goatster’s idea.


#5

Yep.

Will be heading to The Joiners instead of St Mary’s afterward for the incomparable Ben Marwood.

I’d vote for The Bookshop as I enjoyed the ambiance and the Jaipur IPA plus I’d like to wear the orange trilby again. It really tied my look together.


#6

Not sure what time I’ll be able to get into Southampton for on Sunday, but this sounds like the ideal plan.


#7

I will be there or thereabouts, with Geordie mate (having broken his hoodoo last season, think its safe for him to come along). Probably arriving 1.30-2.00 ish so will assume Rockstone


#8

What time is the aim for The Bookshop, guys?


#9

1?


#10

My train will get into Central at 12.53 so I’ll be there by 1.15.


#11

My train gets to St Denys for 13:04 so should be there for 1:15 too.


#12

Will miss the Bookshop but make the Rockstone - probably by 14.20 ish

I can’t think of too many good excuses to leave a pub early but Benali’s due to arrive at SMS at 15.40


#13

half time according to his website


#14

Phew - normal rules apply then!


#15

OK, I’ve missed that train.

I’ll be there at 2:15. I know that ‘there’ is the Bookshop now, but when will ‘there’ be then?

The Rockstone?


#16

I’ll be at the Rockstone - if you’ve got the trilby I’ll blank you


#17

May depend how good the current beer lineup is at The Bookshop! But I’d bet upon us heading to The Rockstone around that time.

I had to run to the station to make my intended train. Dedication to the cause.


#18

ant ran.

Who’d have thought?


#19

Alas, the Trilby belonged to the Bookshop.

I’ll wear that underwear you liked so much instead.


#20

Wild weather ipa 6.1%. Breakfast beer.
