back to article Bork, Beer and Breweries: Three of our favourite things

While we may now be allowed to visit a pub and enjoy a cooling beer, 2020 has not been kind to the hospitality industry, as evidenced by a screen of purest blue stuck on the side of a Tennent's brewery. The sign, spotted at the pale lager pusher's Glasgow facility by a Register reader the Regomiser has elected to call "James …

    Sad omission

    No mention in Tennents history summary of the Lager Lovelies.

    Sexism at its finest / worst.

    Scotsman story about it

      Maybe its a modern twist on their old advertising .... in the 70s it was "your wife's nagging you again .... so get off to the pub where there's a gorgious blonde behind the bar" to 2020s "your computer has crashed again ... so get of to the pub - but the ASA won't allows us to say anymore <nudge><nudge>"

      What always strikes me with stories like this - it was the same in a fairly recent documentary I caught a bit of about The Sun stopping page 3 girls - was that the ladies themselves all seem to have actually enjoyed it and to have been both paid obscenely well, and actually, for the most part, well looked after.

      I'm not suggesting it wasn't a good thing to have stopped it, just that as in most things in life, there's usually another angle that is often overlooked.

        I don't think the problem was for the woman appearing in the photos.

        Nothing wrong with my paper printing pictures of people beating up $ETHNIC, the actors were well paid and enjoyed it

    Tennent's Girls?

    Same beer? I seem to remember having these cans in my collection as a tweener. And Old Frothingslosh? Tennent's girls were nicer looking!

    Tennents Super

    Nothing super about it. It's shite.

      Tennents Super made with the finest highland spring water from, er.... Luton, Bedfordshire

      Apparently the extra-strength "Tennents Super" brand is now entirely unrelated to the rest of Tennents and manufactured in Luton (i.e. England) because Tennents' former owner kept the rights to it when they sold the rest of the company on.

      Guess that's the one they liked most down there, whatever that says about them(!)

    Big Chief I Spy...

    Would have given extra points for spotting a RAM error on a BSOD at a well-known brewery in Wandsworth.

    replete with giant knobs

    Ah, Glasgow...

  7. Badbob

    Not even...

    ... the best lager brewed in Glasgow, never mind Scotland.

    The tour though, I thoroughly recommend. I left it absolutely sloshed.

    I read it as Tron...

    And had the hilarious image in my head of what Tron would had been like if all the actors had been drunk.

      Ironically, there *is* also a well known "Tron" in Glasgow (no relation to the aforementioned Troon in Ayrshire).

    Though, to be fair, this sounds like a hardware issue. Faulty memory or something.

    passed by management

    loads of puns about that so called lager.

    Brewery Boss : - The beer in this establishment has been passed by the management.

    Punter : - I know it tastes like it.

    Dave: Jim have you seen fred?

    Jim: he said that he was away to fill the barrels.

    Dave: whats he doing in the loo's then

    Jim: Same difference

    This lager is like sex in a canoe, Fscking close to water.

    Glasgow Taxi Outing Fund

    "Glasgow Taxi Outing Fund"

    I know what it is and what it does, but somehow, from here in the 2020's, it just sounds....wrong.

    "Aaaarggh! I've been outed by a Glasgow taxi!"
