Recommendation


A phone call from the Landlady. She is in the Baum in Rochdale and tells me to get there quick. I can't, I have to go out soon. Why is my presence required? It seems there is a beer on called Elbow Grease from Summer Wine Brewery in Holmfirth. She says I'd love it.

I don't know the beer or indeed the brewery, but it may still be on tomorrow. If it is as good as she says, maybe not. We'll see.


The linked brewery web site is bloody awful if you use Firefox

I hope the beer is better than the html. Frightening.

Don't be cruel, they don't look like they've been going long, bless them. It took me ages to realise I need to check my HTML on more than one browser. I still get it wrong even now.

They're okay - but I reckon you'd like Brass Monkey's beers better! I've had three and they were all simply excellent hoppy brews, well made by someone who obviously knows what he's doing.

The Silverback, especially, was a lesson in balance, flavour, hops and how UK beer can be interesting.

If you see any, please try 'em!

Be quick you dont want the LAST OF THE SUMMER WINE.They have the same beer on at the Bricklayers Yorkshire beer fest in Putney starting tommorow. Have to give it a try.

Gazza - I'll look out for them. Cheers

Jocko - The BA fest looks good.

Looks very good indeed. I was planning on doing the Welsh Beer Festival at The Rake this Saturday but I think I've just had a change of heart.

You probably be getting one pint in three free effectively if you do!

I had some last night in the King;
's Head, Huddersfield. The best one yet from Summer Wine, I even had a second one!

Went last night and was very good.Summer Wine beer was pale- you like pale beers if i remember correctly and hoppy but quite harsh.Still good to try lots of Yorkshire beers.Giong to the Rake Sunday so should get plenty of brown Welsh beers.

cheers
