I’ve got exciting things to write about. A trip to the tip in north Sheffield, panic beer buying in Morrisons, closed Wetherspoons in Hillsborough. Bet you can’t wait.
But we’ve reached the stage of the year where I’m so desperate for blog views I trawl through the blog for those “Best of the year” features you love. Who knows, perhaps some of you cut-and-paste the pics to create calendars for your loved ones ?
Let’s start in January, when the biggest concern most of you had was whether the Manchester Beer Festival would have enough different beers called “Citra” to last through the afternoon.
Best view – Zennor. Before the locals came out on the street with pitchforks.
Best pub – Racehorse, Tiverton. Never argue with the Ladies darts team. Or a lone Otter handpump.
or was it the Old Neptune ?
Architecture of the month – Piece Hall, Halifax
Best pub animal – Crystal
Best Dressed Pubgoers – The Grayston Unity, Halifax (again)
Culinary highlight – A cup of scratchings at Stod Fold, Halifax (again, again)
Oh, and in Falmouth there was Bass. Yummy Bass.
What a great start to the year. And it would only get better.
