If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 1,700 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).

Christmas Beers 2016

Well its time for the Christmas beers again, not got many this year as, I didn't get out much at all to the pubs and the shops were pretty poor with their selections.

Brakspear, Hoppy Holiday from England

4.0% gold in colour (or very pale amber) with a nice head, with a bitter hop aroma, there is a slight Christmasness to the taste but also lots of hops, although not too much.

Shepherd Neame, Master Brewer's Choice Rudolph's Reward from England
