    The best so far this week, in no particular order, like…

    McConnells Irish Stout (Jarrow Brewery)
    Oyster Stout (Arbor Ales)
    Old Cornelius (Jarrow Brewery)
    Adnams Extra

    I am planning on having some kind of complicated play-off system to decide the winner tomorrow, as Mrs Gazebo is stuck in Boston (Massachusetts, not Lincolnshire.)

    Two very strong contenders this week: Elland '1872 Porter' and Acorn 'Gorlovka Stout', with barely a cigarette paper's difference in quality between them. The 1872 is a little richer and more complex, but the Gorlovka is slightly more drinkable, by my palate. On that basis I'll go for the Acorn.

    Has to be Brewdog's Trashy Blonde for me, at Wimbledon's Wibbas Down Inn.

    After a staggeringly disappointing sporting day, diametrically opposite to Roger's, my wotw was Domaine Edmond Cornu et Fils, 2006 Mersault, just pipping the same stand's Chateau de la Saule Montagny Premier Cru at the Times Wine fest at RHS building last night. If you wanted to try them elsewhere, however, they would knock you back £23.40 & £13.49 per btl respectively.

    I posted this in wrong thread "week ending 11th April" until Trainman pointed out..

    Sorry! Anyway here.. My BOTW goes to excellent Brew Dog's Trashy Blonde. I had a pint of Fremlins which everyone was raving on about but I thought it was rather average and nothing special.

    Having spent the morning chopping 10 feet off the privet hedge and discovering that I had a lawn underneath the wild meadow in the back garden, whatever I drink next will be my BotW.

    Well after a heavy week I'm going to go for Highland Brewery's Orkney IPA tried in the Abbotsford in Edinburgh.

    Far superior to all the JDW festival beers that I've tried this week.

    After a late but unsuccessful challenge from Pheonix Black Shadow, my BOTW is Acorn St George's Best by a short head.



    JDW "Frestival" beers tasted - 0

    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
