Blog: Chris Brook-CarterYou're a traditionalist? Then get out of here!

Chris Brook-Carter | 13 May 2004

We’re quite partial to a drink here at just-drinks – after hours, of course. There’s nothing to beat a foaming pint of real ale, in a pint glass, in a quiet, English pub, with a roaring fire and rain lashing against the windows outside.

So with that traditional thought in mind, let us fast forward to the great British summer, and welcome… bitter in a carton?

Old Kent Inns, a UK brewer, has launched bitter in a Tetra Pak. The company believes the container is ideal for outdoor events, and will end the worry of injuries from other containers.

We’re not sure if you drink it straight from the carton, or if it comes with a straw – either way, the traditionalist in us is having a hissy fit right now.
