The whacky Newportians have made a good example of the fruit and cream genre. Accepting that it might not qualify as beer in the purest sense, I like it.

Exciting news. https://www.unbarredbrewery.com/ are moving back home to Brighton, and will have a tap room.

Train beer, early commute edition

M&S's selection really has gone downhill. Both okay for a cold and refreshing drink on the train after a draining all-day meeting, but not a patch on what you could get a few years ago.
You are not wrong, as with many bars and pubs the selection has shifted to favour IPAs over bitters. Personally I am fine with this Mikkeller offering but it is shame to have several of one thing and nothing of another.

Train beer, part the first.

Thank goodness for Sainsbury's. I was nearly reduced to the M&S selection or the at-seat service.

And part two. In communication of a lost icon from the other end of my home county.

There's some bollocks on the label about it only ever being brewed under a full lunar moon (what other kind of moon is there?) but to be honest I think I prefer the standard Hobgoblin.

And if this journey wasn't a nostalgia fest enough I've just gone within spitting distance of the village where my dad was vicar for 10 years, and am just pulling into the closest station to the house my parents moved into while I was away at university.

We'll wave at @The Real Ravenhurst as we drive past her gaff tomorrow, although I suspect she's several hundred miles away.
