Most of my readers back home will be familiar with the local favourite Dark Matter, brewed by Hoyne Brewing Company, but what if I told you that England has a veritable clone of the Dark Matter, courtesy of Atom Beers in Hull?
Just outside of Cambridge is a little village called Grantchester, made famous to many by the Pink Floyd song Grantchester Meadows. A few months ago I paid it a visit!
After I left Worthing and the south coast (way back in early November) I went to Cambridge. It was there that I stayed with my dad’s second cousin for a half score days in order to explore Cambridge and beyond!
It isn’t often that you get to taste something that you never imagined could exist, but that is exactly what happened with me and the Zubrowka Bison Grass Wodka back in October in Brussels.
About a month ago, I paid a visit to my ‘long lost’ third cousin Richard in the city of Bradford. On the return train back to Leeds (where I was stationed at the time) I hopped off in Shipley in order to investigate the renowned Saltaire Brewery. It did not disappoint.
Happy New Year to all my readers! Long ago, I told myself that as long as I got more views in each successive year, I would continue to put in a good effort on my blog. And for the 3rd year in a row, I have received more views than the previous year, so that means that in 2018 I will continue to give it a good go!
As previously recounted in Worthington’s Creamflow at the Rose & Crown, I quite appreciate having a pub close to my hostel that provides cheap beer and football. One would have thought that £1.85 pints of Worthington’s a mere 354 feet away would have been unbeatable, but that was before I moved to York, where they seem to have a pub in every building. And at this particular hostel, one need only walk 118 feet to find the cozy confines of the Nags Head, which coincidentally also happens to be a Craft Union Free House just like the Rose & Crown, and therefore offers £1.85 pints of Worthington’s. Dear me, at this rate I’m never going to try any new beer!
