    Bruges

    Chimay -- Blue
    Koningshoeven -- La Trappe Quadrupel *
    Viven -- Master IPA
    Bourgogne de Flandres -- Bruin *
    Westvleteren -- Donker *
    'T Verzet -- Doktor Rudi
    Bruges Bierinstituut -- Basilius *
    Bruges Zot -- Blond
    Rodenbach -- Roodbruin
    Cornet -- Oaked Tripel

    BOTW goes to Westvleteren Donker,a beautiful 12% taken slowly in Cafe Red Rose.It was incredible and cost Euro 15 but I couldn't begrudge paying that for the sheer quality.I had never been to Bruges before and found the local beer scene as something to behold,a vast array of styles in some charming drinking hosteleries but not a place to quaff vast amounts unless you want to end up in a canal.

    Next week boating in Atherstone,Coventry (possible PuG crawl venue ?) and Rugby.

    A very slack effort this week :-


    Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale 4.2%
    Otter Ale 4.5%
    Nethergate Black Shadow 4.7%
    Long Man American Pale Ale 4.8%
    Trumans Belt & Braces 4.8%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8%


    The easy winner is the ELB stout at £3.78 (inc CAMRA discount) in the E17 Bell.
    Had some Brewdog cans from Tesco at a firework do yesterday, Punk IPA was 8 cans for £9.00 and Elvis Juice 4 cans for £7.00. What's the point of Brewdog bars?

    I've a mate who's mad on Belgium and always stays in Ghent. I went there around 25 years ago and we went to Bruges and Antwerp. I thought Ghent was better than both, Bruges was very touristy.

    BOTW Abbeydale Destiny

    A fairly typical, pale, 4.3% Abbeydale brew but moreish and went down very well.

    Good week for me, largely based on a nice, lazy Sunday afternoon session.

    Goose Island - IPA. (keg)
    Jolly Boys - Jolly Autumn Gold.
    2 Roses - Sprocket.
    Twisted Angel - Tawny Mild.*
    Aire Heads - Eau d'Aire.
    Great Heck - Amish Mash.*
    Doncaster - Speedwell.
    Bad Seed - Dalliance.*
    Rat - Mother Rat.*
    Harveys - Dark Mild.*
    North Riding - Citra Pale.*
    Five Towns - Baby Blue.
    Thornbridge - Rattle Snake.*

    Lots of good beers on fine form, so very difficult to choose, but I think the Amish Mash just shades it. Special mention for the Harveys Dark Mild, which is as rare as hen's teeth, in the North. The fact I got something from it, having just had two much stronger beers immediately beforehand, says a lot about it, with it being only 3%.
