    Small world! I know the people at the airfield-she is our vet. Even closer to us than Old Dairy.

    Kirkstall & Yeastie Boys - Ryeteous in The Market Ale House

    Fabulous beer, quite dangerous and very quaffable at 6.7%

    Ossett own Rat along with Fernandes, Salt & Riverhead.

    Most of White Rat is brewed at Ossett rather than the Rat & Ratchet anyway.

    A very thin week, the best beer was a bottle of St Bernardus Abt but draught wise Moor Stout was rather good and head & shoulders above almost everything else I had (which wasn't
    much )

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

    Those that drink beer are the best

    We talked about this in the pub on Saturday. I have assumed for years it's several breweries operating under the volume tax cap...

    Quite a few good beers consumed but my beer of the week would have to be La Goudale - Blonde à l'ancienne by Brasserie Goudale - Les Brasseurs de Gayant which was purchased from Morrisons a while back. 7.2% ABV and dangerously easy drinking.

    Also worthy of mention during the same week - Dark Matter (4.5% ABV) by Atom Beers on cask at Corn Exchange in Hull and a bottle of 90/~ Wee Heavy (7.4% ABV) by Belhaven Brewery that I bought as part of a box set from Lidl ages ago and had only just got round to drinking.
