29 Jan 2017 (Philip Pirrip)
Mid evening visit. Dogends of the town-wide annual Beermuda Triangle Beer Festival with no CAMRA discount on the festival ales. Good crowd in and had a good debate about the future of CAMRA with the new local CAMRA magazine editor who was drinking something from a Beavertown kiddie's tin.
|James & Kirkman - Commodore Bitter||3.60||Average brew|
|Brew York - The Hoptimist Double IPA (collaboration with North Riding Brewery)||9.10||Quick half for the road to North Gate station, a 16 minute hike|
|Ferry Ales (F.A.B.) - Witham Shield||4.50||Hopeless unmemorable pumpclip saying only F.A.B as brewery name, won't help future recognition|

|North Riding Brewpub - Paralyzed||7.40||Not Tried|

Mid to late evening. Lots going on here and 3 of the 4 tapsters were drinking or serving on their own premises.
|Sperrin Brewery Victory Beers (Lord Nelson) - Head Hunter||3.80||4½* Punched well above its weight and had astounding flavour. Wasn't meant to be on yet but a pint was poached|

01 Aug 2016 (Philip Pirrip)
Evening. Small crowd by bar only but conversation was good enough to weaken resolve to catch a particular train.
|Coach House - The League of Experimental Brewers Issue No. 1 American Pale Ale (collaboration with 4T's)||4.20||Unusually good for a Coach House brew|
|Imperial - Baxond-Ale Berry Pink IPA||4.80||Intriguing taste but did not want a second|
|Tipsy Angel (latterly a cuckoo at 4T's) - Angel's Mild||3.80||Not Tried|
|Milestone - Summer Lovin||3.90||Not Tried||New style pumpclip with hardly a jolt of brand recognition. Who tricks them into wasting money on rebranding?|
|Atlantic - Blue||4.80||Not Tried|

Evening. Several groups in here, one playing cards and another jamming on their guitars.

21 Feb 2016 (Philip Pirrip)
