Some Fun Facts about our last 10 years at The Old Newcastle House:
How Many Caesars have we served in 10 years?
As the mighty Caesar turns 5o, and we celebrate our 10th Anniversary this year, we thought we would let you know, our loyal patrons, just how many of the yummy meals in a glass we sell:
All told, we have sold roughly 20 Caesars a day, or 7300 a year or 73,000 over a 10-year span!!!!!!!
With all the trimmings, that’s 219,000 olives, 219,000 dashes of Worcestershire and Tabasco, 73,000 pickled asparagus spears, and a whopping 34,353 litres of the best Caesar mix around, Clamato!!!
Stay tuned for some different caesar recipes!
How much Beer has been sold in 10 years…AMAZING!
Did you know, since 2009 we have sold approximately 200,000 litres of beer! That’s the equivalent of approximately 3500 kegs or 5 full-size tanker trucks, and all those kegs stacked end to end is the equivalent of 7000 feet or 4 CN Towers…!!! Unbelievable!!!!! Not bad for a small town pub…Factoid provided by Kevin!
