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 2,000 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).

The Theakston's Brewery was sold in the 1980's but it went back to the family in the 2004 and I just realised that I have not covered them before. So here is a list of the Theakston beers I have photos of, as with the last list, some of the labels may have changed.

Theakston, Lightfoot from England

Theakston, Lightfoot, England 52 beers 3 - 38, Theakston, Lightfoot, England

4.1% gold colour with a thin head, slight soapy aroma, dry sweet citrus taste, better than is sounds.

Theakston, Masham Glory from England
