My headline writer is on holiday this week so I’ve had to create one by picking random ’60s LPs with a vague Wycombe connection and adding the words “Craft Beers” for outrage factor.

If I’d received my Privilege copy of the Guide in Privilege time I could have knocked these off… Continue reading HIGH TABLES IN LOUCHE LUTON
