    Sharp's Abbey Christmas proved a fine accompaniment to the work festive lunch yesterday (at one of those Geronimo Inns that Youngs have just bought - certainly the best food we have had at such an event in recent memory, and not actually that expensive).

    A decent start to the weekend (the promised stronger beers are being held back for xmas/new year)

    Ossett - Nervous Turkey
    Salamander - Plum Bum
    Okells - St Nick
    Saltaire - White Christmas
    Mallinsons - Comet

    all pretty good but the Plum Bum is in pole at the moment

    No further ale opportunities for the week unfortunately so my BOTW is Saltaire's Triple Chocoholic, another top quality winter warmer and extremely popular at The Coal Hole on The Strand.

    Had a good week by my (financially) restrained standards these days:

    Nethergate - IPA.
    Mauldon - Black Adder
    Riverhead - Galena IPA.
    Brew Co - Bock.
    Great Heck - Yorkshire Export.
    Dr Morton's - Eurocrat.
    Bob's - White Lion.
    Northumberland - Rudolph's Balls.
    Ossett - Nervous Turkey.
    Sharps - Cornish Stout
    Thornbridge - Wild Holly
    Elland - Stocking Top
    Elland- Diablo Chocolate Porter.

    Thoroughly enjoyed some well kept Black Adder and the Cornish Stout, but the Diablo's probably the winner. (Unless by some miracle I can squeeze in a couple tomorrow).

    Well,snow's put paid to any further jaunts this week,so my BOTW is, as I'd thought it would be, Incubus from Hopdaemon, a dark chestnut beer at about 4% ABV.Malty, with a good resiny hop base from the Kent grown Cascades (dificult to grow in the UK) and I think Goldings. A more unusual challenger to its neighbour-Late Red.
    On the bottle front, I enjoyed Hengist from Wantsum,a good crisp pale ale.

    Because it was the right beer at the right time and went down so well, my BOTW has to be the Green Jack Baltic Trader 10.5% at Sheffield Tap yesterday.

    The pre Xmas p1ssup in Sheffield was great yesterday, and we had a great time wandering round to the Harlequin, Gardeners Rest, Hilsborough Hotel, Fat Cat, Kelham Island Tavern and Sheffield Tap. Lots of familiar faces round the pubs and a grand atmosphere. Made easy as there was no snow there so pavements were easy to walk round.
