    Done most of my drinking in various JDW's this week, so hardly surprising my BOTW is a festival beer. Very impressed with Cairngorm 'Culloden' and Oakham 'Rollercoaster' and it's hard to split them. I guess the Rollercoaster just shades it, because it was a lovely sunny day when I was drinking it and to me it's pure sunshine in a glass.

    My BOTW from a fairly sparse selection is Morrissey Fox Blonde, another bottled effort I am afraid, sadly the only pint I had out though was Doombar, and I have to admit to being less partial to that lately.

    It was 17 pints and a warm bottle of London Pride for HTM69, last week.

    Consumed over a 3-day period:

    Guinness x 4
    Davenports Deer Hunter x 1
    Rhymney Bitter x 1
    Rock Lobster x 1
    Hawkshead Lakeland Lager x 1
    Morrel's Oxford Blue x 1
    Old Hookey Bitter x 1
    Heineken x 1
    London Pride (Bottle) x 1
    Springhead Spring Chicken x 1
    Cathedral Rentgius x 1
    Sharps Doombar x 4


    BOTW: Last week was a good 'un beer-wise, with so many excellent choices, but I'll go for Davenports Deer Hunter

    A few good ones for me this week including the St Perter's Porter from the JDW festival, Redemption Urban Dusk and something from the Purple Moose brewery at the Bree Louise.

    However, my BOTW goes to Burton Bridge's Bridge Bitter, which I enjoyed before and after watching Bournemouth gain promotion to League 1 on Saturday. Happy days!

    I had a few good beers last week including the excellent Cairngorm Culloden, one of the JDW festival beers, and a Brains Milkwood. But Iím going to be patriotic and declare that my BotW was the St Georgeís Flag from the Phoenix Brewery of which I had a number of excellent pints in the Doric Arch Euston.

    Apparently, it was brewed especially for the festival. I really hope it becomes a permanent fixture.

    They did so I went straight for it. Good stuff but not even Beer of the Pub for me - Kelham Island Pale Rider took that one & could be contender for BotW 2/5 unless the Cask in Pimlico is doing the Dark Star Hophead tomorrow in which case all other nominations go out the window.

    Roger, it's The Cask and Glass tomorrow - not Cask Pub and Kitchen!

    A-ha! That was a close run thing then! Will we all fit in?
