Newcastle: Finally Good For More Than Just CoalAugust 12, 2007
On a recent trip to Galco’s, the Highland Park soda wonderland (like six thousand different kinds of rare imports & domestic micro-brewed hard to find sodas), I was talked into buying a British drink called Fentiman’s Curiosity Cola, and it was 9 kinds of awesome. If 1) Highland Park wasn’t so far away, and 2) the soda wasn’t like $3 a bottle, I would totally drink this instead of my constant influx of Diet Pepsi. The secret, claim the folks at Fentiman’s in Newcastle is that they actually brew all their drinks, for like 10 days. Whatever the trick is, allow me to say “Owdy, Guvn’a!” to you good people of Fentimans. I’m not sure if that’s a compliment, it just happens to be the only British expression I know.
