Don’t worry folks, it’s not a misguided attempt to enter the world of beer blogging, merely a travel recommendation for Mrs RM while she’s camped down in Northampton over the winter. I very kindly tested a couple more possible alternatives to the Spoons for Christine to trek to on the way back from the… Continue reading Northampton Craft, from Klaipėda to Falmouth
Have you noticed how I’m only seen as a shadow approaching my prey in these photos. Oooh, spooky. Onward to Northampton, where Mrs RM is doing a fine job of funding my beer trips, and without the extravagance young Simon is displaying. Slumming it in a Doubletree indeed ! The exciting walk from (A) to… Continue reading THESE SHOES WERE MADE FOR VISITING WORKING MENS CLUBS
As mentioned already, GBG2019 sees Milton Keynes emerge as an unexpected winner. As many re-entries as total newbies, all making Si wish he was doing Bucks all over again. Mind, FOUR of those symbols are microbreweries, not pubs. If only MK CAMRA had given me a sneak preview of the GBG19 entries I’d have visited… Continue reading EMBER INNS IN MILTON KEYNES. NOT AS BAD AS YOU’D HOPED.

So here’s rage from Radnage. Or woe in Wycombe if you like to dump places in their nearest big town… Continue reading A RADNAGE RIOT
I’m sorry to do this to you, but I have no say what goes in the Beer Guide. So here’s the KEG Craft Beer Tasting Bar, putting Bourne End on the map for the first time since 1951, when Stanley Spencer painted the beer festival at the Bounty from across the Thames. In fact… Continue reading NEVER MIND THE KEG !
A few trips to the edges of Metro-land now, to see if there’s anything nice I can say about it for a change. Starting with Watford. I’ve nothing against the town, but Beer Guide new entries round here have been, er, challenging. 2016 produced pint return trauma, 2017 was just firkin’ hideous. Both those newbies… Continue reading UP THE (WATFORD) JUNCTION
