We have 5000,000 members half of them in Ireland.

I've not touched a drop since St. Patrick's Day. :)

My first pint in a licensed establishment was a pint of Taunton Dry Blackthorn in the Champion of The Thames, King Street, Cambridge in July 1985.

Austin's in Hope Street. The least said about it the better! I was very young for my years, and was perhaps too eager for my own good.

Dont recall precisely the first, it would be around Eglinton Toll in 1979. The last I remember very well, in the pool hall above the scotia bar in stockwell st, the week before christmas 1996.

The notorious El Paso in Barlanark was my first local , there used to be a mural on the back wall of the pub of a guy struggling along the desert with the logo "the last drink is in the El paso" or something like that as i remember!

Craigenglen Inn in Torrance aged 14, night of the Ibrox Disaster, 2 Jan 71. First within the city boundary about three months later in the Court Bar, Hutcheson Street. Me & a mate tried to get in everywhere and got drummed out. Got served in the Court. Barmaid said 'Better be 18 boys- polce check on the hour every hour.' It was 6:55 Two gullible 14 year olds neck their pints and offski. First legit pint would have been in the crow or Manor in Bishopbriggs.

Hi Scatlond, If you have a wee think about it you will recall that your first pint was at the age of 15 in 1979 at the Devon Bar on Eglinton St.
Aye,well.
