    Lancaster IPA. Drummers Arms, Blackburn.

    That town has to be one of the worst I've ever visited, for ale. Wetherspoons was passable, but beyond those two...

    Even the food offering was a farce, however we found the Firepit which was exceptional.

    Bradford.

    Vocation -- Heart & Soul *
    Salopian -- Charm Assault
    Fell -- Tinderbox IPA *
    Fell -- Export Stout *
    Abbeydale -- Deception

    BOTW goes to Fell Export Stout,a 6.5% strong stout in impressive condition in the surprisingly hip Record Cafe.

    Next week Grantham,Atherstone and Rugby so more volume likely.

    Reasonable week for me, with quite a few dark beers sampled.

    4Ts - Elvis Peachley.
    Jolly Boys - Jolly Colliers Porter.
    Oakham - Citra.
    Bridgehouse - Baltic Rum Porter.*
    Hops & Dots - Porterhouse 5.
    North Riding / Five Towns - Barley Wine.*
    Nailmaker - Clout.*
    Small World - Long Moor Pale.
    Chin Chin - Float On.
    Bingley - Centennial.
    Great Newsome - Jem's Stout.
    Acorn - New English CF-184 IPA.
    North Riding - Cascade.

    I'm not normally a fan of beers over 5%, but I found the Barley Wine at 8.7% really hit the spot. Rich, smooth and not too sweet. Taken at Henry Boons. It's becoming a bit of a destination spot for fans of stronger beers.
