Arriving in Somerset we’re greeted at the door with bottles of Butcombe bitter and their IPA.Maybe it’s the exhausting*journey, maybe the occasion, but both taste great*—*pure beeriness (http://boakandbailey.com/2012/11/raw-rough-and-rude/) and*sweet Christmas tangerines respectively.
There’s more bottled Butcombe with a barbecue, alongside*local scrumpy.*‘Cider then beer, you feel queer,’ says Bailey’s Dad.*‘Beer then cider… Makes a good rider!’
