    I think the Fern & Fallow, now it has real ale, is always worth popping into if in the area, Hoppy

    I've had a rotten week for beer so far, my top tip of the week is don't bother drinking in Thurso if you like decent beer. Two outlets for real ale, neither up to much, lots of "laagar" of course.

    Thank god for Sheffield and the Harrogate beer festival so things can only get better.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    A few weeks ago I mentined Brentwood IPA as being my dishwater of ther week. Yesterday I had another Brentwood beer called Spooky Moon and it was just as bland and tasteless. I don't think I will be in hurry to do a pub crawl of Brentwood. I think the Stonehenge Pigswill is ahead at the moment but with Mrs B out tonight and my culinary skills limited to "heat and eat" it would be rude not to pop along for curry night especially since there is terrestrial TV footy on making it a rare sporty 'Spoons night. God, I am morphing into Hoppy.

    Well, I had to look up Thurso on the map and it's hardly surprising to hear it's not a real ale stronghold.
    But with Sheffield imminent, plus a beerfest, you seem to have a perfect antidote lined up ob.

    Had a bit of a shock a short while ago. Back in 'my' JDW for another fix of what Granny Don't Like, and lo and behold, there's Cottage Brewery's Norman Conquest MM. So, it bein silly not to, I have a little drink-off between them. I know the Granny thing is goin to win, tell the barmen so. How wrong can you get........MM rulesOK.

    Yeah, the always ready to try them bit works for me, but I have been disappointed on occasion. I reckon they've got about six different brews which they constantly tinker with. 'My' JDW, as I'm prone to call it, usually has two, sometimes three on at the moment, which is giving me a good opportunity to test me theory...MM rules, for now, as the Beast is coming back
