Yesterday ( Nov 11th) Mrs Ken and I were at Beamish Museum for the Armistice event. After the ceremony we had a wander around and went into the Regional Resource Centre, which houses hundreds of items that are waiting go on display, or taken off display. A lot are stacked up to the ceiling. Items such as old domestic appliances, furniture, toys and even a penny farthing bicycle.
Looking at this last one and wondering who on earth came up with an idea like that I said to Mrs Ken , to let me know if she spots any beer related items . " What, like that display behind you ?"
Some items are on shelves behind perspex panels such as these 4 wooden Theakstons Casks, 2 with XXXX, 1 with BBB and 1 with XB. Now Ive heard of and has XB but not the other two. Must look into that.
Opposite this was an even better display and I include some pictures. Being behind perspex, and with strong ceiling lights, it was hard to get the right shot, hope you can see them Ok.
Note the bar price list ( I wish some pubs would have displays like this but dont get me started.) The bottle of Roker Roar was produced by Vaux to celebrate Sunderland's Promotion to the Premier League in 1996.
Worth a visit
