    Well its been a close run thing this week.

    The always excellent Elland 1872 Porter threw its hat into the ring again and Dark Star Expresso also made a strong bid.

    But this weeks BOTW is going to be Butcombe Christmas Steps tried at the Regal Moon Rochdale.

    Which incidentally has just been voted the Wetherspoons Cask Ale Pub Of The Year.

    It just shows what you can do when you've got good management. Well done Chris & the team.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Being snowed in for much of the week, drinking has been localised which usually means a lack of choice, not helped by the fact that deliveries haven't got through to some pubs. I'll opt for an old fave that I shouldn't really like being on the dark and strong side (6%) but I always enjoy it when it crops up, and it's local - Nelson Brewery's Nelson's Blood

    A quiet week, rescued from mediocrity by a few bottles of the exceptional Goose Island IPA. Very hoppy, with a dry finish, 5.9% and highly recommended.
    And you can really taste the hops!

    A couple of cracking winter type ales this week with Church End's Pews Porter at 4.5% slipping down a treat. But my BOTW goes to Art Brew's Tempest Stout, again at 4.5% and an extremely drinkable dark ale from this, in my experience, top brewery.

    Nothing much at all in the last week except for a few pints of Sharps Doom Bar on Saturday evening so that will have too be my Beer of the week.

    Not much drunk this week due to work and family commitments (I can recommend Booths own brand Champagne as well as their bottled beer selection though). I've just had a few pints of Old Hooky which is a splendid beer and a couple of Youngs ordinary bitter, Lees Moonraker in bottles however is particularly fine so I'll make that my BOTW, I'll pop over to Manchester and try some on draught sometime over the post xmas week on the strength of the bottles.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Not had a beer all week, not even something bottled. Can't remember when that last happened.

    Just catching up. My BotW for w/e 5 Dec was Kelham Island A Little Less Conversation.
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.
