5 days in, 15 pubs, 15 pints. I’m saving pubs, are you?
This weekend I’ll take a break, and leave it to the weekend drinkers to pick up the baton.
I’ve enjoyed the pub gardens, and the VE Day spirit, and the banter, but I haven’t seen all this local cask that Beer Twitter bangs on about.
In fact, in the first dozen pubs the standard choice was John Smiths Smooth or Doom Bar, Staropramen or Abbot.
But, just like that first week back last July, the quality of the real ale has been sensational, with the best pints of Greene King IPA, and Abbott, and Jaipur I’ve had in years.
Less choice? Yes, but more quality. Win, win.
