Pint of nostalgia.
Learning to drink in the fens
Although a short course.
Review/notes: Odd to see an Ellgood’s brew in Oxford but a welcome sight, indeed. Brakspear could learn a thing or two about the production end of the business from these Wisbech ladies. This beer was, indeed, bitter, but with layers of hop that maintain their individual flavours. Welcome trip down memory lane to our first year in England, back east in Cambridgeshire/East Anglia.
As this blog winds down (fear not: it will continue at Drunken Bunny), I have been meaning to look back over my old posts from the first to now and list my own personal favourites (about once per month I really knock one for six, but most of the others — like this one — are just there for duty’s sake). This Ellgood’s pint prompted me to start and I just got through February and March of 2009. By the time this blog fills, I should be easily through December 2014.
