    Bad Co Satisfaction 6.7% in Sheffield Tap.
    Alcohol doesn't solve problems .... but then again, neither does milk.

    Nothing too mindblowing in that list, the Binghams Vanilla Stout was good as ever but BOTW is Salopian Oracle taken in (somewhat annoyingly) a JDW, The Four Candles.

    Having never knowingly drunk any I tried two rye beers this week.
    Redwell-Bullards No 6 Rye pale ale 4.4%abv.Dry malty tan beer.Bit of spice. A bit tired.I'm not sure if Bullards is a sub brand of Redwell, or a stand alone entity.
    Adnams-Fat Spratt 3.8%abv.Not a patch on previous iterations.Blowsy.
    Pig and Porter-Red Spider Rye 4.8%abv.Second rye beer of the week.Workboot brown,peppery,dried fruit.
    I can't really say I'm a fan of this malt, but Pig and Porter made a good fist of it.Kent beer of the year according to Ratebeer, hmmm, but my BOTW

    A three day stay in Shrewsbury saw off the two "awkward" Shropshire JDWs, a revisit to Newtown and a re-acquaintance with Bishops Castle.

    Six Bells Cloud Nine 4.2%
    Ludlow Gold 4.2%
    Joule's Shropshire Hop 4.3%

    The hot humid weather hasn't been a friend to beer quality this week. I'm going for the Elland Nevala IPA, proof to me (if it was needed) that this Brewer aren't a one trick pony. It was £3.10 in the Wolverhampton Great Western.

    East Anglia featured heavily this week:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    San Miguel
    Woodfordes Nelsons Revenge*
    Adnams Samba City
    Jo C's Bitter Old Bustard
    Grain Brewery 316
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Adnams Ghost Ship*

    Thoroughly enjoyed all those starred and they all flew down which may have been helped by the warm weather.
