Warwick recently for a birthday break ... Of course there had to be real ale ...

Came across the excellent Purity UBU 4.5% in the Tilted Wig (always have that if I see it). Also enjoyed Church Farm Harry's Heifer, a bitter at 4.2% in the Rose and Crown. Church Farm being a brewery at Budbrooke on the outskirts of Warwick and one I don't believe I had previously heard of.

Also managed to extended the celebrations to an afternoon out in York (never a bad thing in real ale terms).

Pivni offered Dark Star Partridge, a best bitter at 4.0% - I have a soft spot for Dark Star having visited the pub (Evening Star, Brighton) a few years ago where the brewery was born in 1994.

Best beer of the day was a close call between Dorset Brew Co's Portland Porter 4.7% in the Cross Keys and Gadd's Ramsgate Brewery Seasider 4.3% in the York Tap, with the latter, an amber coloured bitter just edging it.

Finally visited the re-opened Red Lion in Doncaster earlier this week. Now a very modern-looking Wetherspoons. Two pints consumed there, firstly Marston's Single Hop Belma (an Amber Ale at 4.0%) and secondly, Geeves Rococo (a Chocolate Mild at 3.6%). Both were likeable enough.

Cask Corner had the always enjoyable Stancill Barnsley Bitter and the Gatehouse had possibly the only Jennings Ale that I can admit to looking out for , Sneck Lifter.

Yes just started the Cider season as I call it (warmer weather - allegedly) Must admit on a personal basis, that its not an ideal drink in the cooler periods, and I found myself turning to the 'Dark Side' :wink: on more than one occasion(to hell with the the gout). Brewery Tap has more than enough choice for the Cider drinker and I can't praise them enough.

Pleased that you still manage the odd tipple of RA from time-to-time.

As for the Brewery Tap, I confess I don't give them my patronage as much as they deserve. Something I will definitely start to rectify.
