If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 1,700 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).

Beers in Warwick, part two

Continuing the write up of the draught beer from our holiday away in Warwick. All of theses are from the same pub, just outside the town walls. The Old Post office bar is fantastic, opens at twelve and closes about eight or nine, just enough time for us to drink. We went in there on about three or four nights while we were there. I could not get photos of the pumps but the landlord passed the pump labels to me.

Crouch Vale, Brewers Gold from England

Crouch Vale, Brewers Gold, England

4.0% gold colour with a nice head, low in aroma but hight in taste, I got honey, vanilla and some hops.

Slaughterhouse, Saddleback from England

Slaughterhouse, Saddleback, England

3.8% amber colour with a nice head, quite an ordinary bitter, which is very refreshing after all these hoppy beers lately.

Slaughterhouse, Space Trotter from England

Slaughterhouse, Space Trotter, England

4.3% amber in colour with a nice head, fruity aroma and slightly sweet malt taste, not a bad beer at all.

Merry Monkey, Scrumpy

Merry Monkey,

4.5% ordered this by accident, only drank half and gave the rest to Dot.

I am sure I had more than this but I may have missed them from the camera, well any excuse to go back.

Beers in Warwick, part one

Over the past couple of weeks we have been away on holiday, first in Warwick and then on to a cabin just outside Thirsk. I bought many beers while away but they are still in bottles to drink, so to start for now, I will cover the draught beers I had in Warwick and London.

Allsop Arms, Best Bitter from England
