I predict 43yr old men with (at least one) 43yr old bottles. Sadly I will be in Crawley :(

No likely attendee is 43.

I might bring my G70.

I've already adopted it. You'll have to bring something else.

OK. Not that I have very many ordinary-size bottles to hand.

As it is an emergency it would be perfectly acceptable to just have the G70 followed by beer and a cigar, unless more volunteers decide to join us.

I am 43 years old, but it is correct to say unlikely to be able to attend if it proves to be Wednesday!

The storm clouds are gathering. Try as I might I cannot find a way to avert the emergency.

Should I change the thread title?

At this tasting will be two fine bottles. And only two brave men to drink them.

Oh well.

Port to right of them,
Beer to left of them,
Cigars in front of them
Cut’d and Light’d;
Storm’d at with sugar and smoke,
Boldly they drank and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of bliss
Rode the two.


Hmmm. Maybe more work needed.

Actually, should this emergency be vintage port? London is having a heatwave. Is G70, and other VP of like quality, best used this Wednesday? How about a beer emergency?

Well, I wish that I could be there tonight,
I'm in Crawley which just cannot be right,
I brought port in case I get away fast,
But the time for wishful thinking has passed,
No Dow to the left of me,
Nor Graham's to the right,
Here I am, wishing that I was with you

[edit:
Looks like the evening could have switched to beer while I posted - the trial of Crawley becomes easier to bear.
However, now what *will* JDAW do with his unexpected G70 find...]

Crawley? My neck of the woods!

Is it a regular trip? If you are ever local overnight, let me know....

Good call. My last meeting of the day is in Victoria Street. Is that a good location for your travel or is there a better place to meet?

This is an international crisis. I feel a strong sense that others, in distant cities and towns, will be joining with you to fight it, wherever they may be. Travelling back from Scotland to Ireland, for instance, I have a great sense of foreboding. Already I have received one text message which suggests to me that the beer emergency is general there too.

This is exactly the sort of contagion that the world's experts have been worried about. It is our duty to solve the crisis as soon as possible.
