Back to the International Wine Challenge today. This week we are judging the wines that passed from last, awarding them medals, and in a few cases demoting some. Had another great panel today. The wine trade is full of interesting and friendly people, it seems.
I’ve been working hard this evening, so it’s time to begin unwinding with a glass of ale. The beer in question, St Peter’s Organic Ale, is one of my favourites, and hails from Suffolk (www.stpetersbrewery.co.uk). It’s a golden ale with a lovely fresh, gently malty, nicely hoppily bitter character. Lots of flavour, not too fizzy, and not at all heavy. This would be a great food beer. Widely available at just under £2 a bottle (I got this from my local Asda).
