It’s Rhyming Slang For Beer

You know the curtains are being drawn across summer when flyers for the Pig’s Ear Beer & Cider festival start to appear. Here’s the new one, just this minute pinged into my email. It’s on from December 6th-10th. Like last year it’s at the Round Chapel in a slightly awkward location in Hackney. Awkward, that is unless you like buses. Hackney buses. I think i’ll go by bike.

    Harsh on the buses – and it’s really not that far from Hackney Overground! I will be there for much of it I suspect so do say hello.

  2. I certainly will Alan (assuming I can get there – fatherhood permitting). Is that you in your avatar?

    Sure is my mug, though a couple of years ago now! I am still easy to spot though :-)

    I’d never even wondered why it was called the Pig’s Ear. Now you say it’s rhyming slang, it seems obvious.

    When’s the London Drinker Fest. Haven’t been to that for years and quite fancy a go.

    • Isn’t that usually on around March? Ain’t been myself – there is a conspiracy at work to make me do shifts whenever a beer festival is on.

        Yep March time for London Drinker, it’s in the Camden Centre near St Pancras so is usually one in one out by about 5.30pm!
