Did you see the BBC One’s, The One Show, on Thursday 5thMay? Our beer made an appearance, but in disguise!
The story was about The Danny, a coal-fired steam tug boat that was built in the early 1900’s. The Danny has had many jobs over the years, one of which was for transport that linked inland industrial and agricultural areas to the open sea which was used for transporting items such as pottery from here in Stoke-on-Trent to the docks of Liverpool. After deterioration and neglect set in, she was earmarked for scrap in 2004. However, this wasn’t the end.
Upon hearing the news of her imminent scrapping, a campaign was set up to save her and have her restored. The Danny is now ready to take on passengers and sail the Mersey once again thanks to the hard work and determination of everyone involved.
Ready for the launch, The Danny has The Danny Beer available to purchase onboard, what better way to enjoy a steam trip than with a nice crisp beer in hand? Or if you are looking for a gift to remind you of the experience, the bottled beer can be purchased to take home with you. We’ll raise a glass to that!
It really is a great story and well worth a watch on catch up, why not watch it with a Titanic beer in hand ready to toast along with the crew towards the end of the clip!
