Cheers on the road

Colin Cook, pictured right, originally from Swalwell, Gateshead, sent us this from The Black Bull, his local in Lititz, Pennsylvania, which has been voted Best Beer Bar in the US state for three years running. On the left is owner Paul Pendyke, expat Scouser.

Colin’s brother Dave runs the Sun Inn at Swalwell with his wife Sarah, plus Owa The Road micropub which is literally owa the road. Colin had been on one of his annual trips home when he picked up the May 2019 copy of the magazine – and took some back to the Keystone State (one of the 13 original colonies) to show off a bit. Cheers Colin – and congratulations Paul.

And it wouldn’t be Cheers without dropping a boo-boo somewhere – but when it comes to getting one of your mates’ names wrong it’s unforgiveable (writes Alastair Gilmour). Last month we ran a photo of Phil Thompson who had taken a copy of Cheers with him to Northern Ireland then sent some images back from Bushmills Distillery. Sorry for getting your surname wrong Phil – total brain fade. We owe you a pint.
