    Well a reasonable start to the week on Tuesday.

    A couple of pints of Phoenix White Tornado followed by a pint I simply didn't like Corvedale Molly Morgan.

    Then a pint of Slaters Magic Monkey Mild followed by two pints of the excellent Elland Born To Be Mild. Great name and a great beer.

    Can I nominate a foreign beer?

    This week I acheived a long-standing ambition and went to see the Oberammergau Passion Play. I stayed in the Hotel Maximilian in Oberammergau which not only has excellent food, it brews its own beer in the basement. So, a hotel, restaurant and brewery which also does fantastic food and has gorgeous, attentive female staff - what could be better?

    So, if acceptable, my botw is Maxbrau Helles, one of the best Bavarian beers I've ever tasted, and if PuG does ever stat listing overseas pubs, Maximilian's will definitely be getting a 10/10 out of me if it keeps upt the standard.

    Foreign beer is fine. Nothing against foreign pubs really, the only reason we don't set them up on the main site tomorrow is the sheer quantity of technical hurdles involved, we are gradually knocking them down during the current rewrite though.

    Only one MILD drunk this last week of MILD May, Thwaites, not bad but not good enough for beer of the week. Otherwise a fairly unexciting week of Copper Dragon and Black Sheep until I found Skipton's other brewery - Dark Horse and their Maypole a hoppy golden ale but subtle and very pleasant and drinkable.

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

    Those that drink beer are the best
