    'Tudor crisps"? Someone is showing their age . . . and their fine taste in crisps.

    Whilst the crisps were very nice I notice you didn’t mention the abomination that was Vaux’s horrible Sunderland beers.There is the old story of the young Geordie lad going to Amsterdam for the first time. Before he leaves his father advises him to give him a call if he feels uncomfortable about anything.24 hour’s late his father recieves a call from his son. His son says “Fatha me mates have just gone into a building with a red lantern hanging outside, what should I do?”The father replies “keep away son, it might be a  Vaux’s pub”

    For the sake of historical accuracy, Vaux Double Maxim Brown Ale  – produced at the very heart of the mackem empire – predated the Newcastle version by twenty years and I can veryfy that it was a fine drink as I would consume it on a regular basis during my younger years and I am still alive and well.Geordies never miss an opportunity to have a go at Machems and their cultural history. (Well one magpie in particular) I demand that you withdraw you scurrilous  comment vis-a-vis "Vaux's horrible Sunderland beer"an dinnabe daft man

    To be fair, Double Maxim was my default beer in a vaux pub, as it was there most drinkable ale. However it didn’t predate Broon. Maxim brown ale was introduced at the end of the Boer War, but Double Maxim was introduced in the late 30s as a stronger version of the original, as a response to Broon which was first brewed in the mid 1920s. The original brew master from Vaux has opened up a brewery on Wearside which is now making Double Maxim again. Broon is apparently now brewed in Holland!!!
