    I have been given a copy of the eulogy from Aqualung's funeral and some personal memories from his friends and family which contain some very characterful stories - not sure I can really share them here, but I will try to remember to bring a copy with me on the next PuG crawl. However, here's a snippet from one of the recollections:

    "Since then I've seen him most weeks and observed his developing obsessions - fell walking, beer, climbing, Pink Floyd, home brew, bus spotting, very hot curries, war games, Chinese cookery, pizza, bingeing at Stamford Hill, cycling, Wales, CAMRA, fireworks, wine making, computer games, darts, cricket on Hackney Marshes, Oasis, Wetherspoons, very strong beer, micropubs and his contempt for those that did not make the grade."

    I can only confirm a fraction of these, but the rest sound about right!

    Last night TP and myself raised a glass of Blue Monkey Infinity to the memory of Aqualung in The Organ Grinder, Loughborough a pub he rated 10 and a brewer he rated highly according to his 2014 review.

    We didn't stop at the one,and went well past the three pint test before the arctic conditions in the beer garden forced a retreat back to the boat,clutching some take out bottles.

    A fitting tribute, especially as it involved such a noble sacrifice. Those bottles must have been quite a difficult carry with cold fingers!
