I have two suggestions for your Diary reporter visiting the site with the list of alcoholic beverages and their equivalent units (NCE last week):
1. The reporter had been trained at the BBC. The drink the reporter described as 'a pint of sherry' was actually a 'pint of shandy' but sherry made the better story.
2. The list was actually what the lads had ordered as a round for the group. They always had problems with the guy who drank the sherry.
