An excellent match day out - spoiled only by the actual match - quaffing these absolute classic pales:

Abbeydale - Moonshine
Osset - Silver King
Goose Eye - Chinook

Not sure how far out of Yorkshire they travel, but they are effusively recommended.

I've always enjoyed Abbeydale's Moonshine. Used to be on at the late lamented Boardwalk in Sheffield.

Had a Chinook at the beer festival today. Tasted great just over the county border 😀

Every Abbeydale beer is top notch; I remember once having a few pints of Absolution which knocked my socks off in more ways than one.

They have the best pump clips as well!

Fantastic beer.

Enjoying Estella Galicia for the first time tonight. Very enjoyable. I also noticed a Belgian beer in Waitrose tonight that I have never seen before. Triple Karmeliet. 8.4% though, so I decided to pick it up on another day. Not really a Saturday night quaffing ale.

Was over in Spain a couple of months ago and that lager appears to have taken over the country, I don't remember it all from previous visits

Was chatting about beer to my barber on Thursday. He mentioned a 'spicy' beer that he found undrinkable. I was intrigued enough for him to retrieve a bottle from out the back.
Turned out it was Badger (Hall & Woodhouse) Blandford Fly. I've seen it but I don't believe I've ever tasted it. Described as a "sweet & spicy golden ale" it is infused with ginger. Decided to open the bottle tonight. The ginger gives it a bit of a 'Christmassy' vibe. A bit weird, I'll probably finish it but can't see me ever exchanging my own money for another one.

Having one of these again as I type. It's a bit too strong to be a thirst quencher. I should have had a cup of tea first.

Bit of a session yesterday. I met two friends in the local to watch the rugby. Leisurely three pints of Timothy Taylor Landlord. After the game we wandered up town to The Eagle Tavern where I enjoyed a pint of Off The Hook from the Hook Norton brewery. Next up, a bottle of London Pride (Fullers) to wash down a chicken tikka bhuna.

A pint of Neck Oil in Fat Lil's Bar & Grill before watching a 70's cover band next door in their live venue whilst consuming two pints of Hobgoblin IPA (Wychwood) and a G&T.

Tried a pint of Copper Dragon Silver Wynd at the local over the weekend.  Ended up quaffing a few more...nectar!!  :)
