Andwell Gold Muddler

The marathon need only
Count as completed.

Name: Andwell Gold Muddler
Type: Blonde ale
Venue: Steam Railway, Swindon

Review/notes: First cool temperatures of the Autumn, today, so I picked up a bunch of windfall apples on today’s run to make an apple infused vodka.  I also had to drop by the Co-op for some supper ingredients (roasting a chicken and baking some cauliflower in gorgonzola), so popped into the Steam Rail for a pint.  The Gold Muddler had the crisp, steely edge that really suited the single digit (Celsius) temperatures.

Also, this was the end of the taper.  To qualify for the Ridgeway Challenge I needed to complete a marathon in a certain time-frame and I’ve trained for it as though I was planning to race but the pubs in the vicinity all open early and there are four of them on the race route…it will be a training run more than anything else.  Shooting for 4 hours including the 4 pub stops.

Here’s the apple pie vodka infusion to be named at a later date:
