Next stop York

08 Jun

Stonegate, York

Over the next few weeks and months, I’ll be focussing on beers from specific parts of the UK, such as Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire, but to get me started, I’ll be visiting a county where I spent three very happy years as a student:  Yorkshire.  The historical County of York was the largest of Britain’s counties until a reorganisation in the twentieth century, when for administrative purposes, it was split into three.  For the purposes of this blog, however, I’ll be reviewing beers from that historical county, and I’ll be starting in the City of York itself.  As a student, Yorkshire is where I first encountered Theakston’s bitter and Old Peculier, Sam Smiths’ bitter, but also Tetley’s and John Smiths’, and my favourite pint was of Sam Smiths’ bitter in the Wellington Inn in Alma Terrace.  These days, there are many more breweries in the county, and I’ll be reviewing beers from York Brewery, Rudgate, Brass Castle, Saltaire, Sam Smiths, Daleside, Hambleton and a few others, too, no doubt.  So, off to God’s own country…

      Always grateful for suggestions. Where’s a good place to buy these? I’d normally head for Screaming Madness in York

        Yorkshire Ales of Snaith and Bierhuis in Ossett. Yorkshire Ales may still have offer of free postage for 24 bottles & £5 for 12.

        Nice post BTW!
