How about this one. The white signed building at the back is called the Old Eagle Inn. Probably demolished with the hotel and station but it was one of the first pubs my dad drank in when he was working up here in the late 60's.

Anyone any memories of this? Or are we all (claiming to be) too young for drinking in the 60's??? :D

The Old Eagle Inn with bar and lounge serving genuine Carlsberg Export imported from Copenhagen at 2/6 per pint and with a notorious reputation for serving under agers.

"Copenhagen at 2/6 per pint"

HG quote of the year so far I think

Of course this is the generation that made an English lager with a Belgian name the top selling beer in the UK despite it being "brewed" in a shed off a motorway in Wales under the ownership of Brazilians.

And can swallow any tale of fortified public toilets, tunnels in Bothwell street, Slave canals to the Clyde and Erik Von Danniken but you tell them that genuine Danish Lager was 2/6 and they don't believe you.

That's what attracts me to this site.

Norseman Lager

Postby Alycidon » Fri Jun 03, 2005 9:07 am

Not so much remember a particular pub, but did anyone seriously drink in any pub selling Ushers beer and more specifically Norseman Lager. If ever anyone tried to invent a cure for alcaholism that was a damn good try.
I turned 18 in the Airdrie when pubs still shut at 10pm and all day Sunday and the only entertainment on a Sunday night was at the Tudor Hotel (Best known for where Billy Connolly recorded the Crucifixion) unfortunately it was Norseman it sold.
God it was disgusting!!! :x

I remember me and my mate (we were about 14) used to collect beer mats/towels, we used to go into every pub in Partick and the City Centre looking for mats. Once we went into a pub in Partick (can't remember which) and the barman gave us a whole packet of those!

Gay Pubs

Postby Shazbat » Sat Jun 04, 2005 8:23 am

The Vintners on Clyde Street, The Muscular Arms on West Regent street (I think) and an amazing pink outrage of a club on Clyde Street called Pussycats. All accessed when I was a wee fifteen year old from Paisley. Marvellous. :wink:

You coudn't have made a worse lager than Norseman. Did Ushers get absorbed by Carlsberg?

What was the rubbish beer served in working men's clubs in lanarkshire. was that Ushers?


Found the answer Allied maker of another poor lager Skol took them over.

You may be thinking of the Norsk Bar which was on the corner of Sauchiehall St and Elmbank St near Charing Cross. It was extensively refurbished a number of years ago and is now the Variety Bar.

That's the very fellow.

I seem to remember that it had a basement bar, which the variety doesnt have, so I imagine that there's a perfectly preserved 70s/early 80s nastly basement bar perfectly preserved somewhere near the toilets of the Variety :wink:
