real ale

A warm welcome

It was nice to get home yesterday and find a letter from our local CAMRA group welcoming us to the region and enclosing the two most recent newsletters (spring and summer).

It turns out that, not only does Cornwall have several microbreweries already (most of which we knew about) but a few more are in the pipeline. So maybe we won’t be drinking nothing but St Austell Tribute after all?

Just as well after the good natured rant we were treated to by a friendly bloke in the pub on Saturday: he drinks ale as a rule of thumb but drinks only lager in St Austell pubs because he hates their beer so much. He knows them only as “St Awful”.

I visited the Keltek Brewery in Redruth at the weekend, and nearly got to go to a St Austell pub but it was too far from the car park and I wasn’t prepared to put the effort in since I couldn’t drink.

Lovely pint of Butcombe Bitter at Bristol airport, though.
