Thread Name: Folklore: Pewter Tankards
Subject: RE: Folklore: Pewter Tankards
Terrible, vile things tankards. Every pub I've ever used served beer in perfectly good glasses. Anyone who had their own tankard hanging up behind the bar I'd mark down as a complete tosspot. I'd like to be more liberal and understanding about tankards but they're the worst kind of snobbery in a portable form. Everything that's wrong with folk, superficial, ahistorical, superior, backward looking, twerpery. In short, ridiculous.
Thanks to the OP for the opportunity to sound off on the subject.
