Sporty Ougrée is sitting at the bar


“There’s a place for everything,
Everything, anything, 
There’s a place for everything 
Where it ought to be: 
For a chicken, the hen’s wing; 
For poison, the bee’s sting;
For almond-blossom, Spring; 
A beerhouse for me.” 

(R. Graves in Strong beer)
Seraing-Ougrée (B)

Rockers filled with fantasy

“And so it did happen like it could have been foreseen
The timeless explosion of fantasy’s dream
At the peak of the night, the king and the queen
Tumbled all down into pieces”

(Bob Dylan in Ballad in plain D)

Oh my god! No more beer and chips …

"They sell good Beer at Haslemere
And under Guildford Hill.
At Little Cowfold, as I've been told,
A beggar may drink his fill:
There is a good brew in Amberley too,
And by the bridge also;
But the swipes they take in at Washington Inn
Is the very best Beer I know, the very best Beer I know."

(J.H. Belloc in West Sussex drinking song)

"Here,
With my beer
I sit,
While golden moments flit:
Alas!
They pass
Unheeded by:
And, as they fly,
I,
Being dry,
Sit, idly sipping here
My beer."

(G. Arnold in Beer)

“I cannot eat but little meat,
My stomach is not good;
But sure I think that I can drink
With him that wears a hood.”
