I think I have neglected to mention that I am in Liverpool at the moment...
Well, yesterday I finally got down to the beach at Formby Point just in time for a glorious, breathtaking sunset. Almost horizontal, tired sunbeams streaming across the surface of the sea, making the dunes go a strange pale red and the air clear enough to see over to the Welsh mountains in the south west and the peaks of the Lake District to the north.
What better way to follow that as the darkness encroached than to go and have a pint?
Scotch Piper I think to see what the guest beer is this week.
I love this idea of "guest beer" which you find in the pubs these days. It's a chance to travel randomly around the country trying out local brews from the comfort of your own local. So, got my beer, nice head, lovely auburn colour.. first swallow..glug glug...mm, excellent. It was a really good pint.
The only objection I have is to the name...
I mean you can't go into a crowded pub and ask for a pint of Bonkers, can you?
Bloody good pint though...
