As the word document I’m copying and pasting from says; “more freaking beer buttviews”. This weekend I finally went to the treasure chest of brilliant bottles that is Carringtons in Chorlton. Someone on Yelp described this shop as “being six again and cooing over the Pick ‘n’ Mix at Woolworths” which is exactly what it’s like, only with beer. So with recommendations bagged up and ready to be drunk, Socrates and I began another beer review. Any typos expressed here are that of the (drunk) authors’.
This week, Morrisons are currently selling “seasonal” beers and ales for just £1.50. But despite the charming/often terrifying labels of these festive drinks, how appropriate are they really? Does drinking a seasonal beer evoke memories of tinsel, yule log and fireplaces… Or are they just bitter and disgusting? Socrates Adams and I set out to find the truth about Morrison’s Selection of Cheap Seasonal Ales.
I am having a productive morning.
