I have been following the forum for some time but not posted before, anyway an interesting observation has compelled myself to make my first post here.
I was in a "Free House" pub last night that was featuring a "Yorkshire Beer Fest" (pub in question was not in Yorkshire).
I noted ALL the bar staff were wearing SS tee-shirts and all the beermats were SS ones, so I asked for a pint of OBB and was told that it isn't available till Tuesday.
Anyway, I sat down with a pint of Black Sheep, and noted a poster on the wall that stated something along the lines of...
"Tuesday 1st November, come along for a pint of Sam Smiths and meet the actual Sam Smith in person who will be attending this event".
I doubt Humphrey would be attending so can only assume his son (Samuel) is behind this and will be attending, and SS are actually trying some marketing for a change?
Reading through the forums at the way SS handles marketing, is this a first for SS
Just checking the SS pub location map, there are no actual SS pubs in the town I was in, and the nearest SS pub is over 30 miles away.
