The garden is starting to wind down now and my mind is thinking of Autumn projects. One or two will be gardening related no doubt like building a decent set of compost bins but there’s other things I want to do like learning the art of foraging for wild food, cooking more meals and brewing my own beer for Christmas. So this blog may become a little bit more diverse over the next few months. But before all that it’s time for a well earned break, and one or two drinks from a selection of real ales I’ve been collecting.
During my younger days I’d drink all sorts, alcopops, when they were all the rage, and lager mainly, but over the last few years I’ve come to appreciate a decent real ale. Now I’m not a member of CAMRA or anything but I know what I like and here’s a few of my favourites that I’ve sampled recently.
Bath Ales Gem & Wild Hare, St. Peter’s Brewery Original Best Bitter, Black Sheep Golden Sheep, Badger’s Golden Champion, Golden Glory & Cricket and Hop Back’s Crop Circle & Summer Lightning. One or my regular reads ‘Caught by the River’ has real ale reviews from time to time if you fancy a change. Cheers!
