Alcoholic beverages were allowed to reopen from 6 a.m. today.
Jimmy, who worked a night shift on the tarmac roads, avoided sleep to get his first pint served at the pub since March.
After opting for a Carling, he told the Manchester Evening News, “It’s great to be back.
“I was at night, I finished my shift … I went home to take a shower and I entered.
“Having my first Carling was like an angel p *** ing on the tip of my tongue. It’s great that he’s back on the draft. I’m fed up with cans in the house. ”
Earlier in the day, a man celebrating the return of pubs to England made his “wishes” by shooting a live jagerbomb on the BBC at 11 a.m.
The smiling bettor, in a Wetherspoons pub in central London, smiles at the camera before taking a drink.
One Twitter user expressed his approval, writing, “I love the fact that he shot a live jägerbomb at the BBC at 11 am. ”
It comes as drinkers prepare for their busiest night of the year, with businesses being allowed to open for the first time since March.
But with the R rate now feared to be greater than 1 in London – which means the number of new Covid-19 cases could increase – experts called on the drinkers to be careful.

Amid fears that the reopening could fuel unrest, West Midlands labor police and crime commissioner David Jamieson said government chose “very bad” when to choose a Saturday night and admitted it “Prayed for the rain”.
He had suggested that it would be more appropriate to open pubs on a Monday.
Across England, police were planning to deploy additional patrols.
