Brazen boozers enjoy pints from beer tap machine on train

INGENIOUS commuters were spotted enjoying their own pints from a draft beer tap machine while on a train to Scotland

Clem Cowton was travelling from London to Glasgow for COP26 yesterday when she spotted two middle aged men in the carriage enjoying their pints.

The 33-year-old sat down across from the men for the four hour journey which saw the boozing duo tuck into beers from the KRUPS tap for the entire trip.

Using the plug point, normally used for phone charging, the beer-lovers hooked their device up and attached the keg of beer underneath the table.  

Clem, an Executive at Octopus Energy, couldn’t resist taking a snap of the forward-thinking travellers enjoying their pints onboard.

One hilarious image shows one of the men reaching across the table, glass tilted, as he pulled a pint.

Another image shows the other man sitting back with a refreshing looking beer perched on the table in a Stella Artois glass.

Clem posted the images on Twitter yesterday, captioned: “On the train to Glasgow for #COP26 and gratified to see the man opposite has come equipped with his own beer tap.”

The post has received over 11,000 likes and has been retweeted over 1,000 times. 

Hundreds of social media users left comments on the post after being impressed by the brazen boozers.

@mickyfcullen said: “Steve Bruce enjoying his retirement.”

@heatpolicyrich commented: “Clem, did you ask him why? I mean it’s incredible if it’s just a choice thing but surely not.”

@backhand added: “Poured perfectly in what must be quite tricky conditions.”

Speaking today Clem said: “I was on my way to the climate conference in Glasgow to talk about how gas boilers suck, gas is expensive, dangerous and dirty, and clean, efficient, low carbon heat pumps are better for our homes and for the planet.

“It was set up by the time I boarded at Euston.

“They just quietly got on with it like it was the most normal thing in the world, and chatted to each other about football.

“They probably had two or three pints each.”
