My first pint was in Paisley the Cottage Arms, my first Glasgow pint was The Bristol Bar Duke street when I was around 16. My first legal pint was probably the andros Great Western Road

Mine was in the Clynder Hotel on the Gareloch some time in 1972 wth my Dad and Uncle Iain. When I stayed in Linthouse he regularly sent me for a carry oot and if I could get cheap ones, I could have one for myself. If I remember the cheapest then was in an offie opposite Fairfields on the Govan Road, long since gone, just along from McCulloughs the bike shop.
Then I buggered off to uni in England so never had the experience of trawling the Govan Road bars as a teenager. But I did before the area was remodelled/flattened/ruined. It was an experience. 'Yer nae fra here then? and all of that shite, then followed the questions which proved that I was indeed from the posh part of Govan. Ho hum. :(

My first pint in a pub was the albert bar in queens park I was 15 at the time it was a scorcher it was the day before the 1980 Scottish cup final when there was a riot after Celtic beat Rangers and the horses were on the pitch charging the crowds. I also got my first ootdoor shag that day in queens park but thats probably TMI.

That's Hungry Joe you're thinking of. He's not had them emptied for a while.

Hunting Lodge in Bath St then on to the Picasso to see The Groundhogs . 1971 I think was 17 bit of a late starter but didn't really like the taste of alcohol then. :evil: :?

I was a late starter as well - but Strathclyde Uni student's union was my first pint in a pub - Freshers' Week 1994; I was 17 but nobody gave a monkeys in those days. I used my lifetime membership card to go for a trip down memory lane a few months back - £1.80 for a pint of Tennents served from a plastic glass - how things have moved on (not..)
