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).

Greene King, IPA's

Greene King, the brewer from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England, seems to me to make quite a few India Pale Ale's and most are very good. So I will have a look at the Greene King IPA beers that I have tried. I will do them in order of strength with the weakest first.
