Reflections on beer from an advocate, retailer, brewer and drinker.
I am the Beer Specialist for Regional Wines and Spirits one of the most comprehensive and unique liquor retailers in New Zealand. My background is as a cheese monger and I have an all round passion for fermented foods. I have a particular passion for English beer styles and I run a 60 litre real ale home brewery.
The next J.D. Weatherspoons International Real Ale Festival will feature a cask conditioned version of the New Zealand APA heavyweight Epic Pale Ale. Brewer Luke Nicholas will fly to the UK and brew a batch of the beer at Everards in Leicester. A Kiwi brewer brewing a beer with American ingredients in England, truly a global ale. I think Epic will be pretty good cask conditioned, it will be interesting to see what’s made of it in the UK.
Is that poster really saying the pints will cost over 8 pounds ?!!! or is it a blank for altering in the bar.
