    I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't had a single beer this week yet, not even any of my Air Miles continental lagers (Mrs B has placed too much salad in the frdige's beer compartment and I won't touch them at room temperature!).

    it's fear not lack of a bottle opener. I actually have a bottle opener in most rooms in the house just in case, can't be too careful. I have drunk the 12% Westvlerten I bought in Amsterdam very nice it was too but I refuse

    point blank to do tasting notes as there's nothing more tedious.

    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 no good. Mrs B has sent a text saying she's going out. I can't sit here and starve. 'Spoons Curry and copious ales are awaiting. Several beers of the week, here I come.

    Well that was a lucky dip at 'Spoons - there was a Meet The Brewer night going on with a guy from Hogs Back that I knew nothing about so a few free samples were gratefully accepted. As for Beer of the Week - I now have a front runner that I don't think I will top and it ain't a Hogs Back beer!

    Just had look at picture of Flying Boat, quite interesting building and bit deco like if I must admit.

    Paper Moon... hmmm not sure about the building but I have seen worse!

    Both have their history - the Flying Boat was part of a factory that built the floats for Sunderland Flying Boats during the war hence the name. The now demolished rear section was once a roller skating rink and Randolph Churchill (dad of Winston) once made a famous speech there. It was a car showroom for many years before becoming a rather nasty Litten Tree. 'Spoons were going to turn it into a Lloyds bar but because of the Litten Tree history they were only given a limited licence and it opened as a normal 'Spoons in June last year after a rather grand refurbishment - money well spent if you ask me. Initially the ale choice was a bit hit and miss but they are now getting their act together. The Paper Moon was our original 'Spoons in what was formerly a Lloyds Bank. The building that you're not so sure about was built by the same person that built Guildford Cathedral. The paper element relates to Dartford's historic paper industry. Tonight they had 2 Hogs Back Ales, 2 Whitstable Ales, a White Horse ale, the unique Flying Moon Ale (only found in the 2 Dartford 'Spoons) and the usual Ruddles, Abbots etc. Works for me!
