Clearly undrinkable…

April 7, 2012

Yesterday, being still child free, the beloved and I went out for a drink in a pub without having to organise/bribe someone to look after Arlo.  A novel experience for us which turned out to be very enjoyable.

We went to the Bay Horse Inn in Totnes where there was, unbeknown to us, an Easter beer festival.  I like a beer, especially an English,  not fizzy, not too cold beer, but I can’t drink a lot in one sitting – probably just as well really. I need to go to beer festivals with other people so I can have sips of their drinks and so taste of the full range on offer. Fortunately we went with Sally and Rachel who were willing to offer beer swaps –  although both do have a worrying propensity for preferring fizzy German lager.

The Bay Horse was offering lots of different beers, and ciders too, some local and some from further afield. There was a very nice porter which was pretty strong, and a light, flowery, golden ale which reminded me of the Adnams I used to drink in my youth. I can’t remember the names of the breweries involved, but it doesn’t really matter because we’re not going to get another opportunity to go to a beer festival for a while, because the intrepid traveller, Arlo, came home today –  with Halo and Damon.

We had been talking of home brew while we were sipping the real thing and Sally mentioned that hers was cloudy and didn’t taste of much. We were quite rude about this –  in a nice way, but it reminded me that in the pantry there was some home brew of our own which needed attending to.

This morning I syphoned it off. It looked promising. I felt it was worthy of a photo. Both brews were beautifully clear – see through even – and  each was a lovely colour.

It’s a pity both were undrinkable.
