    Default Tonight at Sheffield Hatters Inn

    So, it's Black Sheep night. But first beer out of the traps is York Yorkshire Terrier 4.2% - from Black Sheep. This is now brewed at Masham, of course, after Black Sheep acquired the stricken York Brewery in 2018. It is a separate entity, though, and the Black Sheep website has some stuff about finding a site for the York Brewery back to where it once belonged (Get Back Jojo).

    Next was Black Sheep Ale 4.4%, which is similar to Black Sheep Best Bitter. I think both of these beers suffer from too harsh a dose of carbon dioxide; or it may be that this style of beer hasn't got the flavour to override the CO2. Looking forward to the Riggwelter 5.7% next, and will round off the evening with the Imperial Russian Stout 8.5%.

    No imo.Their beers are always competently made but they just don't have the flavour.They have always done good styles of beer but never quite nail it. I have always felt they skimp on ingredients.

    A very pleasant trip round some Yorkshire breweries, beers curtesy of Ilkley, Saltaire and Roosters, I also travelled north and enjoyed a drop from Durham Brewery.

    ... for which I can blame the loosening of my normal restraint and the consequent little rant I've had on the Random News thread. Please give it the consideration it deserves.

    The RAR bar is open, Vocation Bread & Butter and Heart & Soul slipping down nicely...
