We had a day out in Ripon again last week, nothing to do with there being two good beer shops there, we just went for a day out walking with a picnic.
But there are two very good beer shops there and I had to have a look, just in passing you understand. The two shops in question I have mentioned before in earlier posts, Drinkswell (they haves a very good selection of beers but it is a bit pricey) and Rhythm and Booze (have a good selection but with plenty of offers).
However, I discovered a large Booths supermarket behind the main street, that I had forgotten all about, we use Booths when we are in Keswick and I knew that they usually have a good beer selection. So I had a look in there, while Dot was clothes shopping.
Now I know there are three very good beer shops in Ripon and Boothe is probably the best of them, a very wide selection at very reasonable prices. I bought about ten new beers in Boothe and still managed to pick up another three new beers in Rhythm and Booze, as I took the previous lot back to the car.
It was a nice warm sunny day, we had a very nice walk and had our picnic by the canal, all in all, a very good day out.
