He drinks a lager drink, he drinks a cider drink

This came up in conversation * over the weekend : SIRC's Passport to the Pub. It's a little dated now - pre smoking ban and extended hours - but the core material's not far off the mark. (I've worked bar jobs - yes, the invisible queue really does work.)

NB. This piece forms the foundation of the (obvious) chapter of Kate Fox's Watching the English, which has equally been lapped by legal changes, but is equally light reading and, I think, basically right more often than it's basically wrong.

* in the pub, as it happens ...
