Love a benny, and there is nothing better than a Beni and hot for a head cold in winter.

Lovely... That would up my game at least 10% knowing a bottle of Beni was on offer.

Let’s hope they find a way of serving them quicker at half time instead of not getting a beer until second half!

I'm surprised that we're the only club selling hot-benes, I'd have thought that there would've been a similar tradition at Rovers and Accrington at least?

For those who don't know and are interested it's D.O.M. "Deo Optimo Maximo" (To God the great and good")
Don't forget it originated at a Benedictine Monastery, so not as bizarre as it might appear.

I've been boring everyone stupid enough to listen to me where ever I've been that Benedictine monks brewed it in a monastery and served it to the brave Burnley lads in the East Lancs regiment during the Great war. I've just discovered the monastery/monk bit is nonsense but I'm going to ignore that and crack on.

Belting idea. I don`t normally buy a shirt, but would definitely buy one with a Bene Sponsor, the club are missing a trick there!

Sweet and sickly.

I probably would drink it if I was stuck in a trench in France with no other alcohol about.

I was brought up on Bene and have a bottle in my pantry at all times in case of stomach upsets!

It is a wonderful tipple and the idea of them sponsoring our shirts instead of love island would be brilliant.

I really want one of these bottles.

So if J. Rod or Wood, or Pope or Mee etc - or infact if any of them are willing to donate to a good cause (myself) it would be good...
Or indeed auction them for a better cause (though right now I can't think of one :lol: )

I love the fact we have the history and their ad's are still at TM. You also spot them every now and then on TV.

They are in the background on photos and clips old and new etc Much better than blanket betting ads - but they are still there and there are others

It's part of the TM fight and spirit (not technically a spirit) that is forever linked to East Lancs and Burnley.

Never Forget.

It is a nice connection to local history for some who were in the Great war. I have always associated it with a drink to be taken with hot water when I have a cold during winter. But well done to the club for keeping the tradition going.

It is; but it’s a noun and not an adjective.

Perfumey, mayhap?

Far too sweet for me but my dad used to like bene & hot as did my grandma who always said it was only for medicinal purposes.

Funny how betting sponsors made this message board go into melt down, yet alcohol is fine, maybe there's no alcoholics on here

How much hot water do you put in a bene and hot? Equal parts to the bene? Fill it up to the top or what?

If you like your bene forget your hot water try it with ice as Peter Kay would say the future utc

I loved her to bits but I once suggested she must never be well given how much of the stuff she went through. I got a clip behind the ear.
