    Some real quality this week and the bottles tasted great working down the Bosley Locks ,but BOTW goes to RedWillow Wreckless,fresh as a daisy an easy three pinter in The Young Pretender.

    Some very good beers amongst a little tedium.
    There can be only one winner though, BOTW Dark Star Greenhopped IPA . A modern classic in fine fettle, enjoyed in Cobbetts.

    A trip to Birmingham next Saturday may throw up something of interest.

    This week saw a rampage through all the W Yorks Spoons I'd not been to plus one micropub :-


    Hook Norton Cathcarts Xtra Pale Ale 4.2%
    Elland Chinook 4.6%
    Robinson's Trooper 4.7%
    Saltaire Galaxy Pale 5.0%
    Shepherd Neame Bishop's Finger 5.0%
    Small World Thunderbridge Stout 5.2%
    Goose Eye Pommies Revenge 5.2%
    Goose Eye Over And Stout 5.2%
    Daleside Monkey Wrench 5.3%
    Little Critters Chameleon Simcoe 5.5%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Phoenix Wobbly Bob 6.0%
    Bridgehouse Cherry Choc Stout 6.0%
    Acorn Gorlovka Imperial Stout 6.0%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%

    The Jaipur is the obvious candidate but I'm going for the Bridgehouse Cherry Choc Stout as tried in a couple of JDWs for just over two quid a pint. It's a strong stout with a hint of cherries. Most of the W Yorks JDWs seem to be pretty good with plenty of Locale options.

    tried both in the wood and from metal, from the wood was definitely BOTW.

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