Nobby's Ha'p'ny Ginger Dip


Ha'p'ny Ginger Dip by Nobby's Brewery.


Thanks to @alcohofrolicchap for this truly execrable pumpclip image. 

Apparently its image is printed in Leicester CAMRA Beer Festival's Programme.

  2. Kind of inevitable. We're 18 months max away from a beer called "A Man With His Cock Out". The pumpclip will not feature fowl of any kind.

  3. the MD of Marston's was right, clearly. The ultimate beer name for some in the UK would have to Knackered Old Cripple Cock - god knows what the clip would be mind.

  5. I think you can safely close the web site down now - you'll not top that one.

  6. I feel a letter of complaint to Leicester CAMRA is on its way for printing this image in the beer festival programme.

  7. I fail to see the problem. Nobby and his beers are great.

  8. Well Anonymous (why the anonymous comment if you believe in your views?) why does Nobby hide good beer behind such a grim label?

  9. Don't understand the problem with this. Please tell me exactly what the issue is here. I know Nobby, that's his nickname, his beers are great.

  10. Have to admit, I didn't notice the pubes myself. Always shocked at how innocent I am :P

  11. Well Fawny, could you please have a word with your mate Nobby and tell him this pumpclip is vile and it's an insult to all those trying to raise the profile of good beer.

    And don't you dare offer the "it's just a larf innit?" defence.

  12. First time I looked at it, I thought it was a close up of someone's head, then I looked closely. OMFG, pass the wire brush and Dettol...

  13. I will indeed ask Nobby, funny though for something so "offensive" to some of you, you had to look REALLY CAREFULLY to see it.......

  14. Fawny: Mate, it's shit. Maybe the beer's great, but the clip's just shit. That's the problem. See?

  15. Nobby's beers are forgettable so I'm sure the intention behind this shit pumpclip was to create something "memorable".
