Did you know….Newcastle Brown Ale is affectionately called the ‘Dog’ by those in know.
A euphemism originating in Newcastle, UK, “Walking the Dog” is code for scampering to the local pub for a pint of Newcastle Brown Ale. Usually greeted with a sigh from your significant, this witty drinking excuse has become a classic in England.
Lucky you – this insider info can get you invited to Newcastle Brown Ale’s inaugural “Walk the Dog” Day – an excuse for Southern California Newkie fans to meet up with friends and enjoy a pint in an exclusive location with music from The Entrance Band and entertainment.
Newcastle Brown Ale “Walk the Dog” Day
Date: Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011
Time: 11 am to 3pm
Location: The Echo (1822 w. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026)
Also required for entrance, a minimum $1 donation to benefit the Los Angeles Art Association (www.laaa.org), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities, resources, and services for emerging Los Angeles artists of all media.
Note – references of “dog” always equals Newcastle Brown Ale, and not a furry, four-legged animal.
