    Default Beer of the Week (w/e 17th October 2021)

    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

  2. #2


    All about Birmingham this week:

    Twisted Wheel Moral Panic*
    Hobsons Green Hop*
    Towers Chamberlain Pale Ale
    Thornbridge Market Porter
    Oakham White Dwarf*
    Bransome Golden Fiddle
    Thornbridge Jaipur*
    Fixed Wheel Wheelie Pale
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    Tough call this week with recall of each beer not being the best although I do remember the Jaipur clearly which I enjoyed despite it's chilliness.

    BOTW Hobson's Green Hop. The only green hopped beer I've had this Autumn and it was juicy.

    Richmond,Harlow and Birmingham.

    St Austell -- Proper Job *
    Mc Mullens -- IPA
    McMullens -- AK
    Printworks -- Helvetica
    Nine Standards -- Golden Ale *
    Hobson's -- Green Hop *
    Towers -- Chamberlain Pale
    Oakham -- Citra
    Oakham -- White Dwarf *
    Branscombe Vale -- Golden Fiddle
    Thornbridge -- Crackendale *
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA
    Fixed Wheel -- Wheelie Pale
    Hobson's -- Town Crier
    Blue Bee -- Parkwood Porter *
    Church End -- What the Fox's Hat *
    Meantime -- Anytime IPA (bottle)

    Difficult choice ,BOTW goes to Blue Bee Parkwood Porter which stood out on the crawl despite my tastebuds taking a battering from a large mix of different beers previously.Having a pint helped and it was in good condition in The White Swan,for me one of the highlights of the tour.

    Next week no rest for the wicked with boating to Kidsgrove and Stone finished off by weekend footie.

    But BOTW comes from a regular source in Surrey, at the top of its game Burning Sky Plateau was exceedingly good in The Alfred.
