Newcastle Ail

Newcastle upon Tyne (or is it Newcastle-upon-Tyne?) has changed a lot in recent years. Shipbuilding, coal mining, the steel industry and most of the fishing is gone.

The brewery, however, continues to pump out oceans of Newcastle Brown Ale. As the warning sign on the brewery entrance cautions, it corrodes metal and dissolves flesh. That's why my friends and I drink Newcastle Brown Ale straight from the glass. We're professionals.
