The wife bought me a present from you know where (Lidl) the other day? She knows I am missing my carboot sales and browsing round charity shops. So to satisfy my inner Womble she bought me this enamel Guinness mug:
I don't think I will use it and it sits proudly on the unit in our front room. Perhaps it will be worth summat/sumfink one day?
Apparently Guinness originates in London! Not many people know that. The Billingsgate porters use to drink a brown stout very similar to Guinness and Arthur Guinnes called it 'Porter' after them. When he established his brewery in Dublin he brewed this Porter and added Liffey water to it to give it's unique taste.
