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).
My email is ralphgant@sky.com.

Lidl brought out six beers in a group numbered One to Six, some of them I have had before but I think some are new. So I have just tried them all as new and these are my new thoughts and new photos.
