Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple streudels

I am hopefully now advancing towards the light in the brewery and normal blog service should be resumed before too long. Thank you to everyone for your encouragement, support, acts of hari-kiri, beer and fruit baskets. I am alas unable to leave the brewery for the foreseeable future so I apologise in advance to everyone I had agreed to meet up with before, during and after the GBBF trade session for my non appearance. I am particularly gutted about missing the GBBF because I was invited to judge the Champion Beer of Britain for the first time this year.

I will be popping out of the brewery to meet up with Oz Clarke and Hugh Dennis next week. They are co starring with me in a TV beer tasting at Watergate Bay. I have been challenged to create a beer using their two least favourite comestibles and still make it palatable. I have made a red ale with jelly fish for Oz and an oyster stout for Hugh. The oyster beer will be the blog seafood stout. I am pleased with both of the beers. I hope they are too.

Happiness is a contented flavour panel.

shame won’t be seeing ye at the GBBF, but good news with the TV thing, as I remember the SS was absurdly delicious, just got the Gruit left now.
