I am quite partial to Spitfire, I missed an opportunity last month when it was a pound a bottle instead of 1.99

But then I found lots of adverts for it too

...and finally the adverts that were banned

Absolute genius, if a wee bit sexist. And homophobic. Not to mention xenophobic.

Just some of the qualities that make this country great.

I'll not try to top that array, but still, a local brew literally made down the street... AND banned in some states of the union :lol:

Nice classy lady :lol:

I quite liked the Bishops finger advert at the bottom where it says "at 5.4% its near the knuckle"

Has anyone had the 'pleasure' of visiting the Bishop's Finger' pub near the West Gate in Canterbury? It was the favorite haunt of the English faculty at the University. The landlord was an ex copper and it was never raided for after hours; this was in the 1970s. There was a back way out to an alley in such an unlikely event.
Thanks for the happy memories.
