The Age Of Innocence
How was I to know there were different types of the damn stuff? And what was the difference between the two? Having pretended to give it some thought, I ended up blowing my pocket money on a half of each.
Much later I discovered that it was fairly irrelevant what you chose at the Nags. The Bitter went back into the Mild and the lager went into everything. The picture shows the Nags circa 1951 with its original Bury Brewery signage. Bury Brewery was the smaller of the two town breweries still trading after WW11. It was bought along with its estate of 80 pubs in 1949 by Daniel Thwaites and ceased production in 1955.
