    This week has been a day in Oxford and a couple of days at Reading beer festival. Best beers this week were at the festival and for me BOTW will be Dorking Winter Ruby 5.2%. Fantastic flavours.

    Wandering, or wondering, or wandering in.


    Irrespective of what I may or may not have today I'm going to declare my BotW as Tring Brewery's Death or Glory, named after the regimental motto of the Queens Royal Lancers. Normally it is only brewed once a year on 25th October, the anniversary of the Charge of the Light Brigade. Whether this was a special brew or a barrel that had been kept back I'm not sure but I had it at a beer festival run by a pub that supports Tring as one of it's local breweries. 7.2% of pure gorgeousness

    A good few days drinking this week Saltaire South Island Pale was excellent but BOTW could only be Black Sheep Imperial Russian Stout, a lovely 8.5% stout. The reason for its being brewed is here.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    Big drinky week with Bexley Beer Festival, Rose's Beer Festival in Woolwich and an away day in Maidenhead which, with the help of all the wedding beers (that I did actually try to avoid) has ended in 26 new beers shoved down my gob since last Sunday. Picking one is tough but I'll go for the Conwy Honey Fayre at the Bexley Beer Festival.

    Another fairly quiet week, but some of the beers were excellent. Tried this week:

    Sarah Hughes -Dark Ruby.
    Timothy Taylor - Landlord.
    Imperial* - Imperial Blonde.
    Five Towns - All Ale To Our Lass.
    Ossett - Big Red.
    Great Heck - Equinox.
    Golcar - Dark Mild.
    Milestone - St George's Legend.

    Particularly enjoyed the Sarah Hughes and Five Towns, but the mild was on stunning form. BOTW Golcar - Dark Mild.

    * For those who haven't heard of Imperial and are curious, it's a micro based at a club in Mexborough, South Yorkshire.

    I'm Going Green with envy here. Ive not had a Pint or Bottle of Beer in the last ten days due to working all these long shitfs over both bank holidays without a day off. Well will I need too make up for it tomorrow Tuesday it will be the first days drinking in Eleven Days. I think the first will go down quick like this.

    A lot to go at this week:
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Old Mill Blonde Bombshell
    Joules Pale Ale
    Abbeydale Absolution
    Backyard IPA
    Blue Monkey BG Sips, 99 Red Babboons, Something Blue
    Sarah Hughes Surprise
    Old Cottage Halcyon Daze
    Burton Bridge Stairway to Heaven
    Holdens Golden Glow
    Thornbridge Jaipur, Chiron and Kipling
    Marstons Old Empire
    Theakstons Best
    Brunswick Emerald Express
    Whim Snow White
    Alcazar Alcazar Ale and Fox Tale Ale
    Chuch End Vicars Ruin

    Everything from Blue Monkey, Thornbridge and Alcazar was excellent and the Brains, Burton Bridge and Brunswick offerings very disappointing. BOTW by a short head was Thornbridge Chiron.
