    Decent week

    Adnams -- Wild Hop
    Red Squirrel -- Hopfest
    Wychwood -- Hobgoblin
    Oakham -- Bishops Farewell * (3PT)
    Oakham -- Citra * (3PT)
    Titanic -- 7 c's *
    Tring -- Moloko
    Adnams -- Ghost Ship *

    BOTW is a toss up between the two Oakham's but going for the Bishops Farewell on fine form in The Mansion House.

    Next week based in Dorset,will be doing well to get much ale.

    Default Three Tuns Stout

    For the right beer in the right place, the Stout in the Three Tuns Inn & Brewery in the rather remarkable little market town of Bishop's Castle.

    Not bad in the end,
    Darkstar Hophead
    Darkstar American Pale Ale*
    Liberation Sin Bin
    Wells Bombardier
    Peerless Waimea*
    Elland Sanctuary*
    Hanlons Devon Darkness*
    Tring Thunderdell
    Saltaire Chocolate and Hazelnut porter*
    Waen I Love Mo*
    Pig and Porter Fatal Flaw*
    Wylam Jakehead IPA*
    Sirencraft Limoncello(keykeg)*
    Greene King New Horizons IPA*

    The Limoncello was fantastic, a worthy winner, but right up its jacksy so to speak was Wylam Jakehead and GK New Horizons IPA.

    Thanks for that. I'd come to the conclusion that it was awkward to say the least.
    I've been there a few times over the years but have it marked as one that very much deserves a return visit.

    Yes, the Six Bells was probably the runner-up for the month, and the Castle would have won my Beer Garden of the Month nomination too. Not bad for one little town with just six pubs!
