It has been a fun weekend. We headed over to my sister’s place on Friday intending to stay for lunch; we ended up staying two nights. I had to send Fiona back home to pick up some wines for a blind tasting, though!
Yesterday afternoon I headed over to the White Horse in Hedgerley in the good company of brothers in law Dominic and William (above). There was a mini ale festival on, so we sampled quite a few different beers, sitting in the sunshine in the pub garden.
Most of these beers had been brewed with the royal wedding in mind, at least in terms of the names they were given. My favourite was Castle Rock’s Kiss Me Kate, a pale-coloured, fresh, hoppy brew. Elgood’s Windsor Knot was also impressive, as well as Blakemore’s Hitched. I also really enjoyed another chance to try Rebellion IPA.
