Beer and Guinness keep Pub turf floor alive

Daily Mail - Landlord Turf Pub A Landlord has brought the outside 'inn' after turfing his entire bar with grass for the famous Cheltenham Festival reports The Daily Mail.  Landlord Aiden Carolan, 39, has laid down the turf in his pub to give an authentic feel to punters enjoying the famous horse-racing event at The Pepper Mill in Birmingham.  

Mr Carolan, who has been the pub's landlord for 11 years, buys turf for around £200 and sets it down in the bar area of the pub, with the green grass also acting as the perfect background for the St Patrick's day celebrations.

'The customers absolutely love it, and I think the spilt beer and Guinness act as a fertiliser because the grass grows quite fast when it's down.   'We get loads of people coming in for a drink purely to have a look at the grass.
