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).

Another Local Small Pub

Just back from nearly a fortnight down south in Devon, with stop offs in Tewkesbury and Stratford-upon-Avon but that must have covered at least a dozen new beers. So that will follow when I get them sorted, for now I will continue with my visits to the new micro bubs in Billingham.

It was late on Sunday afternoon and we had had nothing to eat since breakfast (we had been visiting family) but we still made for one of the new pubs the The Porky Pint. When we got in there they were serving food, small snacks (or not so small), Hot Pork, Turkey and Beef buns, also pigs in blankets and roast potatoes. We had slow cooked beef with roast potatoes and gravy and we got plenty, excellent. Now for the beers.
