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).

Beers from our Barnard Castle Trip

On our last trip to Barnard Castle in September, I had a few new beers and a couple I had had before but I will cover them all here.

Black Sheep, Baa Baa from England

Black Sheep, Baa Baa, England

4.0% gold in colour with a poor head, it was just like all new beers in this country, gold, hoppy and average. I used the older photo here but I did have it again but by accident.

Grey Hawk, Pippin from England

3.9% gold in colour with a poor head, not much aroma and a bitter hop taste.

Pt. Multi Bintang, Bintang Bir Pilsener from Indonesia

4.4% gold in colour with a nice head, citrus aroma, it also has a citrus taste.

Consett, White Hot from England
