    Had a few fints of mild this week and enjoyed the Hook Norton SDM. However my BotW goes to a light beer Oldershaw's Sunnydaze.

    No pub this week, but I enjoyed an excellent pint of Shep's Masterbrew at Belmont House , Throwley nr Faversham where we were selling plants in the grey May half light. I'd half hoped that they'd have some Hopdaemon from up the road, but where else could I have seen the Prince Regent and his good lady singing along with Freddy Mercurey?

    Lots of choice this week and so a very hard decision but my winner by a short neck is Derwent's interpretation of the Carlisle State Brewery bitter.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Not much in the way of numbers but a few decent brews this week. Top Dog for me was probably the Wolf Golden Jackal at the Fat Cat in Colchester. Only a 3.7% job though - I must be turning into a lightweight.

    The winner this week was Butlers Revenge brewed at the Shugborough Estate in a log fired Victorian microbrewery by Titanic.Pale ,powerful, hoppy 4.9% and quaffable this was well served at the Six Jolly Brewers in Gainsborough.

    Having safely navigated the tidal Trent ,next stopping places to include Thorne,Goole and Doncaster over the remainder of May.

    I took a narrowboat up the tidal Trent to Goole myself a few years ago.

    Any fun with those huge sand barges?

    It's also an interesting and very deep lock at Goole to get back on to the canal system when surrounded by ocean going ships when we only drew 16 inches!

    Anyway after many good drinks this week I'm going to go for

    Spire Twist and Stout - a very good beer with a great name.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Rob,
    That was brave.My old tub only has a BMC 1.5 made in the 70's with a rather dodgy heat exchanger cooling system ,so we nursed it down the tidal Trent from Cromwell lock to Keadby on a neap tide with an overnight stop in Gainsborough.Only gravel barge around passed our mooring on the pontoon at 6am .I'm not brave enough to attempt the passage via Trent Falls up to Goole with all the ocean going stuff and anyway I needed a few beers in Keadby to steady my nerves on what is a huge ,wild river .Still got a bit of the tidal Ouse to do on the way to York and Ripon,but thats for Mid June and after a serious session or two in Sheffield.

    My BOTW is Copper Dragon Golden Pippen, a lovely, pale, refreshing pint that I tried in The Royal Oak, Chesterfield.

    Just gets the nod ahead of Brampton Stout, which probably would have won, had it not been served far too cold.
