    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Quality week:

    Blythe Hamstall Hop*
    Slaters Haka*
    Front Row Brewing Rucked*
    Wilde Child Obsidian Phantom
    Tamworth Brewing Co. Whopper*
    Mallinsons US Premium*
    Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild*
    Abbeydale Moonsine*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    All were good and the Hamstall Hop deserves a mention as a green hopped beer brewed with a hop rocket, ooo errr, which passed the 3 pint test with ease.

    Against stiff competition BOTW was Tamworth Brewing Co Whopper drunk in the outstanding Tamworth Tap where it's brewed. A well hopped, 6.5% IPA which reminded me of Oakham Green Devil IPA. Excellent.

    Some real quality with the BBF Milk Stout only narrowly pipped by Blythe Palmers Poison in the Rusty Barrel.A brew named after a notorious Victorian murderer from Rugeley,its a terrific brown best bitter and in no way boring.

    Next week a cheeky trip to central Bradford,here's hoping for great ale.

    Several excellent beers this last week with an honarable mention for North Cotswold Hung Drawn And Portered, a super smooth Porter and certainly name of the week but the nod goes to Triple fff Altons Pale Ale best yet from this brewery enjoyed in The Wonston Arms.
