    todays beer of the week is Ruddles County .. sadly from a can rather than hand pulled at such venues as the Royal Oay Leverton Notts or better still the Plough Inn at South Leverton also Notts .. the Plough used to have a tiny post office facility within .. it also doubled as a small grocery shop .. its a small low roofed pub with two small drinking rooms and a large beer garden .. smashing place to be in the summer after a cycling pub crawl of the area which included the excellent Ayres Arms at Rampton village .. pure England at its best .. only minor bruising highlighted the health worthiness of the expedition due to the front wheel coming adrift ..

    My beer of the week was Newmans Wolvers Ale (no I haven't heard of them either - a small brewery in Caerphilly, I drank it in Liverpool). This was closely followed by Sharps Nadelik drunk in a Wetherspoons.

    I'll have to ponder about my Beer of the Year, it may even be a MILD .
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    With days running out till 2010..

    I'll plump for Mordue's Newcastle Coffee Porter as my beer of the year. What a cracking ale.. full of flavour, bit like drinking cup of cold coffee but better!

    As of today, my BOTW is Wychwood's Dog's Bollocks. Strong, flavoursome, dark in taste but not so much in colour, beautiful.

    I'll have to think of my BOTY and which POTY I would like to drink it in

    I haven't had that since my student days, but my memory is it was accurately named. One of those where it tasted nice while you were drinking it, don't stop though or the aftertaste will hit you and you make a face like you had just tasted it's namesake.

    Anyway in my local pub, The Fox in Hopwas, People would always turn their head when I mention "Bollocks please" which I was actually refer to Dog's Bollocks!

    Bankss Keg Mild or me last night , best of a bad choice but only 1.60 a pint and the band was good plus a few decent bits of eye candy (-4 and skirts that short , they`ll catch there death) better than a night in with the x factor

    Davenports was murdered by Greenhalls same as Wem Brewery , though that was more put out of its misery . You can still get some Davenport beers , dont know where they are brewed though .
