Pubs are as varied as the customers they attract; there’s no typical pub, just as there are no typical pub-goer. There are traditional pubs and style bars, with dozens of categories in between – similarly with people.
After preparing the news list for this month’s magazine I was struck by the variety and sheer breadth of subject matter. In the same way that you could walk across a pub floor and hear snippets of conversation that range from football to Coronation Street and “Darling, you’re going to have to tell your mother…” we take a look at everything that goes on in and around them.
For example, Morpeth Town have reached the final of the FA Vase, so the town’s pubs will surely enjoy some positive results (and we wish them every success on May 22). Hops, better known as an ingredient in beer, are being considered for use in restaurant kitchens; art exhibitions are becoming a regular feature in pubs; commemorative beers and brewing collaborations are regularly commissioned while the pubs themselves continue to evolve and develop.
And, this is before we even mention the exciting project that is Wylam Brewery’s move to The Palace of Arts building in Newcastle’s Exhibition Park. And, here’s where you come in – if there’s anything you think we’re missing out on and could be improved on, please let us know.
Cheers is yours whether you are “traditional” or “style”, Old George or Jonny Ringo. Enjoy yourself, Cheers.
