“A couple of tables away, Gary Douglas, 52, was measuring the time in pint glasses. ‘We got here six beers ago,’ he said. Douglas and his friend Neil Tattersall, 43, were surveying their second round, six more pints — three apiece — laid out in a row. (‘I’m just too lazy to queue up each time,’ Tattersall said of buying in bulk.) They figured they had an hour more, give or take.” NYT (Gift Article): England Had a Game, but First Its Fans Had a Quest. For Beer.
