    Cracking pint of Brew Dog Edge at the CASK yesterday, and also a very good Rebellion Mild at Southall Conservative Club on Friday.

    I think the Rebellion Mild just shades it.

    Haven't had much this week but a good pint of Loddon Bamboozle gets my BotW
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.

    A fine couple of sessions in Liverpool this weekend where I found not only my BOTW Stonehenge Pigswill but the most disappointing beer of the week (Kelham Island Pinball Wizard).

    BTW Stonehenge Pigswill is in the Punch Taverns scheme "Finest Cask" which I came across in a couple of decent places in Liverpool, 18 breweries involved mostly small, the largest being Brains, Adnams, Thwaites, Wadworths, Caledonian and Everards. The smaller ones are more interesting and include Castle Rock, Moorhouses and Saltaire.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Three frankly average beers this week in the pub:Shep's 'Canterbury Jack'-all I could taste was ginger:I'd rather have had a ginger beer shandy; Hancock's HB, and Black Sheep Best Bitter,which would have been better in Yorkshire and through a sparkler.
    My BOTW is Freeminers 'Goldminer', care of the local Co-op.Somehow I'd missed this one in the past. A good clean citrussy golden,using First Gold "hedge hops".

    If it helps Hoppy, I had the Tomahawk 12th April.

    BOTW - cannot decide really. Had so many festival beers and all in good condition. An asterisk against Milk Street Cobble Wobble from Solihull festival makes me think that was the best, but no - I did vote Derventio Cleopatra beer of the festival, so will make that one my BOTW.

    Cask tonight, to raise a glass to Tigerdrinker's newborn, not all pumps on as they wind down to 'meet the brewer' tomorrow, can't recall who - they make Alchemy, though not Abbeydale.
    Whilst at the bar, someone came up & ordered 'that bottle with no label' - barman gave fair warning that it was Westvleteren(?) 12, but he went ahead for £35(!!!) for the bottle. A requested bottle menu told me it was 10.2%, and rare, but even so, £35 for 330ml or so? Nope, I couldn't buy a bottle of £000s Petrus either.

    Anyway, Brewsters Hop-a-Doodle-Doo, at the Cask.
