February at last
Right, here goes. this is my final attempt to spark some life into this blog. The winter feasting season is over and it is now time to get back to what matters most - beer. The larder is empty, no cheese, no Christmas cake, no snacks, no crisps, no biscuits. My huge stash of Cadbury's Dairy Milk is exhausted - my wine gums are all gone, as are the licorice allsorts - yes, even the brown ones were gobbled up last night. The weather is warming. The children are back to university (well, one isn't but that is a wholly different tale). There is a new more personal blog that I'm hoping will help me shed some pounds. The cross trainer is dusted off and the running shoes dragged out from beneath the wellies and waterproofs. The new London Drinker is about to hit the pubs and it is packed with special places to find great beer in the next two months. I have plenty to share given my barren patch. There are new bars to shout out about, Cask Pub & Kitchen, Sheffield Tap, Citizen Smith. Some new beers, notably Bengal Lancer, the IPA from Fullers. Now that I have finished reading about Swedish lesbians, I can get back to my beer books. Those kind people who have sent me stuff over recent months will at last get a shout out for their beer, website, film or book. There may even be some more videos. So, here we go, this is my best effort. Enjoy !
