Under the “Pub Ticking Blogger” charter I’m obliged to do a monthly post detailing progress, even if I’m in a field, in Wiltshire, without WiFi (as Jarvis Cocker sang). Posting on a mobile phone is the blogging equivalent of pubbing in micros.
That internet problem means I’m struggling to update my GBG spreadsheet for the new Guide, meaning my pinkies aren’t getting much of a workout.
Never mind, End of the Road Fest provided some decent keg from Beavertown. And hazy IPA from Gyle 59, and some sunshine.
Pubwise, 36 new GBG pubs before the 2017 Guide became redundant, and a clatter of counties complete in the west.
The highlight was meeting the Southworth clan to discuss Dylan, Goodfellas, and taking your beer back in Deal. I’ve never seen Goodfellas. Or Dylan.
New Pub of the Month was the New Brew’m in Burnley. Because you’ll never get tired of this photo, or Burnley.
Cat of the month was from Kendal
Beer of the month was this;
Helped by the best view of the month, from the Anchor to Tintern Abbey.
Some fairly dull beer in August, if honest, and you cant really blame the heatwave on that.
I reckon I’ll have finished checking the new GBG my Monday night, at which point I will claim to be heading off to the Isle of Wight.
In reality, James is off to Uni in Sheffield on the 17th and I suspect that’s where I’ll be basing my ticking for a while 😉
