A postbox, chippy,
Seven hundred year old pub,
A run and some beer.
Name: Cameron’s Gold Bullion
Type: golden ale
Venue: Mug House, Claines
Review/notes: With Jackie working I had Saturday free so I chose a run location within 2 hours transport of the house and went for some tourism. Worcester is a Cathedral city and by all endorsements it has one of the finer Cathedrals going. There’s also a bit of Sir Edward Elgar and English Civil War tourism to do and the town is absolutely lovely set in the Malverns on the banks of the River Severn and with the Worcester and Birmingham Canal cutting through it (which is both navigable and has a tow path both hike- and run-able). Further notes on the trek are up on the blog or coming soon, but for the sake of this as the 2014-15 Holiday Run Streak entry let me note that there was an accidental detour to a fine local pub, a stop at a rare postbox, a snack from an ideal chippy, this stop at an ancient ale house, some mud and muck on the way to the canal, a grand little music pub, and a quick pint at a pensioners’ fly trap near the station.
On my run, today, I had a mild, a strong cider, and a lager but the stand out beverage was this Cameron’s golden ale, sipped on a bench in the cemetery grounds in the cool (but by no means cold), damp air of this perfect late fall day.
