The sovereign bitter is an outstanding beverage. Not only does it quench ones thirst like Jesus first pint after 40 days of fasting; but it fills the tastebuds with what one can only describe as heroin for the tongue. Such a drink can enlighten each of our lives but also start each of us on our evenings of respective debauchery.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesnt. This isnt fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

A luscious bitter with subtle aromas of beer and quite a beery aftertaste. Wonderful for all you beer lovers, especially served by the wonderful employees of The Swan, Durham

You dont go to the Swan for one sovereign, you dont go to the Swan for two sovereigns, you go to the Swan to get absolutely fucking steamed.
