New Year

Well the New Year is here and I have finally got round to writing the blog.

We are getting to the end of January now but I would still urge you to #tryanuary don’t forget your local brewery and pub are not just for Xmas!

We have had out first brewery tour of the year with a number of hardy souls braving the cold brewery to hear about the brewing process, sampling Malt, sniffing hops and of course trying some beer. A thoroughly good night seemed to be had by all.

Things have been very quiet in 2016 so far with most pubs seemingly over ordering for the New Year, however last week picked up a little bit so hopefully things are getting back on track.

I am starting to plan some new beers for the New Year and one of my current ideas is to have a series of beers, probably 4, named after specific landmarks in St Helena. I spent 12 months working in St Helena for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office a few years ago and I still have a soft spot for the place. Historians among you will know that it is one of the remotest Islands in the World and it was here that Napoleon was exiled to. He lived out the rest of his days on the Island and died there in 1821.




Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.
