    My friend from Texas who had not seen Morris Men before joined in with them at Plymouth beer festival and got away with knuckles intact. He was told there are Morris Dancers around in the states.

    I loved our tour to a hop farm in Herefordshire. We went there for around 3 hours of interesting information seeing round the fields for the tall and short hop set ups, the machinery used after picking and drying room. Worth doing a tour if one in your area.

    Unfortunately, I haven't managed to drink any of his green hop beers yet this year.
