    Had some decent Wainwright at Queen's in Lytham and then three of Rooster's Yankee at the Craft House there. But winner is the pint of Pint (Marble) which followed me across the Pennines to the Hope And Union in Stockton.

    Another quiet week with just a small pub crawl of Leeds city centre, a surprising choice of beer perhaps,

    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Having - very thankfully - managed to both get to and back from Germany for our family holiday without being quarantined, I'll go (unspecifically) for various good beers from smaller Thüringen breweries such as Schloßbrauerei Schwarzbach, Saalfelder, Watzdorfer and Dingslebener.

    Surrey:

    Five Points-JUPA 5.5%.Another of those fruity ,hazy Pales.OK, but not really what I needed to slake the dust.
    Five Points-Railway Porter 4.8%.Loverly dry dark chocolately beer.Taken as the evening's chill descended. My BOTW
    Surrey Hills-Shere Drop 4.2%.Fine, but not on the top note.

    All taken at Surrey Oaks. Our first evening pub visit to meet friends since before lockdown.
