    Default Beer of the Week (w/e 6 February 2011)

    About to head off for a week away so no further drinking opportunities. Not a bad week with Cotleigh Long Eared Owl, Blue Monkey Evolution and BHB Asteroid all worthy of note but my BOTW goes to Dark Star Sussex Extra Stout. Does what it says on the tin, knocks Guinness into a cocked hat and a great warm up beer for an England victory.

    I've had a good week for beer, this week:

    Ascot - Bravo.
    Binghams - Brickworks Bitter.
    Brew Co - Magnitude.
    Raw - Twilight Black Lager.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild.
    Fernandes - Pacific Jade.
    Fernandes - Cascade.
    Fernandes - Great Northern.
    Phoenix - Monkeytown Mild.
    Ossett - South Pacific IPA.
    Anglo-Dutch - Spike's On T'Way.
    Ossett - B2K IPA

    The B2K was unbelievable. A 7.5% monster of an IPA, brewed to celebrate Ossett's 2000th beer. Single hopped with the Citra variety, it was utterly delicious. Easily BOTW.

    Enjoyed a lot of beers this week, particularly round Bristol on Saturday rather than Weston Friday, and BOTW goes to the excellent Dark Star Tripel 8.5% enjoyed in the Three Tuns Bristol.

    Brilliant list of beers on the 7 handpulls, and a lot of real ciders too for those in the cider market.

    Late again and not due to being spoiled for choice, I've been retrying some lesser pubs in preparation for the GBG selection meeting so lots of John Smiths Cask, Black Sheep Bitter and Theakstons Best so I'm GRUMPY.

    Best of the decent beers I've manged to get to was Wensleydale Black Dub Stout made with oats and a bit different.

    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

    It's a while since I tasted it, but I really enjoyed it. My BOTW also, at the time.

    I'll go for the resuscitating qualities of Fyne Ales Hurricane Jack. First beer of day2 of my Edinburgh trip, at Musselburgh's Volunteer Arms (more commonly known as Staggs - no apostrophe on signage...)

    Good call - this was my BOTW last week.

    I had a bit of a patchy week beer-wise with a few crackers amidst a sea of dross, but came up trumps with a fine pint of Rebellion Mild in the Wenlock Arms on Saturday.

    Other contenders included White Horse Black Horse Porter, Adnams Oyster Stout (albeit not a patch on the Dark Star) and Gales HSB.
