    Called in the Port Street Beer House last night on the way to Stock for a meal.

    BrewDog Alice Porter, Kirkstall Black Band Porter & Magic Rock High Wire.

    The Magic Rock is winning at the moment. A great beer from a brand new brewery.

    Two days of good drinking for me this week so a difficult choice, three beers stand out Leeds Midnight Bell which I guess is a MILD or maybe just a porter, new boys Yorkshire Heart of Nun Monkton near York with their Hearty Bitter ( crap name, excellent beer) and my BOTW the outstanding Salamander UFO Tofu (no bean curd used in its production!)

    BTW the pub had run out of Salamander Golden Oldie just before I bought a pint of it ............grrrr.

    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

    Hardknott - Queboid (Port St Beer House, Manchester)
    Oakham - Citra (Bartons Arms, north of Birmingham)
    Welbeck Abbery Brewery - First Brew (The Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham). Absolutely astonishing this one, and was flying out of the taps. I'll have this as my beer of the week, month...and most likely the year! -the locals told me this was the brewery's first beer but I'd had a few and wasn't sure whether to trust them.

    Only had a few limited Ales this week that were Stones Best Bitter Butcombe Blond & Grafton Encore.

    I will go for
    Grafton Encore
    As beer of the week.

    Moor Somerland Gold at The Grapes on a crawl with Roger. Had it at The Black Friar a month back and it was spot on there too

    Had a lot of local ales at the beer festival at the Star in Vogue this week, but my BOTW has to be Blue Anchor Spingo Special that I had at the Britannia in Chacewater. Liquid nectar. The one at the festival didn't come close.

    A very quiet week for me, just the four tried:

    Fernandes - Sundog IPA.
    Castle Rock - Elsie Mo.
    Crown - Near Enough.
    Brewsters - Stilton Porter.

    Fortunately, they were all pretty good, but the Near Enough just shades it from the Sundog IPA. Like Titanic, Crown is another brewery I've yet to have a duff beer from.
