This pub is NOT for the birds

by Pub tales

Carling the crow, a pub regular who was known to sneak sips from patrons’ lagers when they were not looking, is no longer welcome at its favorite pub in Neath, South Wales.  For a time the purloined drinks were considered humorous, but for this crow, nevermore.

Watch for beer stealing birds!

The manager of the David Protheroe pub, Sarah Wyatt, has warned all customers to scare the bird off after bird experts pointed out that the crow is a carrion crow.  For some people it is fun to see animals get drunk, but no one wants road kill back wash from a critter that might have just returned from a dead rat feast.

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
