Returned from Newcastle last night after delivering 3 and a half days training to the team there who are taking over the work I have been doing this year. When I arrived on Sunday night this bottle of beer was in my room with a “with compliments” tag around it.
Had not come across the brewery before and some googling revealed that they only started up in 2000 in Northumberland.
It was a fine tasting drop, hoppy with a grand bitter taste – slipped down really well on Monday night as a restorative after a days worth of talking – and at 5% abv no slouch in the alcohol stakes.
