I've never been a fan of Boddingtons Bitter. But if I went back to a recipe from 1945, would it be any good? And how would it compare to the Boddingtons you can buy today?

There was a time where, if I was in a pub and there was no real ale, or if there was and it was absolutely terrible (gone off, poorly looked after, or whatever), I'd go for a pint of stout. And that usually meant Guinness. Recently I tried to brew my own version of the black stuff, because why not?
Recently I tried to brew a clone of Fuller's iconic London Pride ale. Would it taste anywhere near similar?
The first in an occasional series, comparing a homebrew clone of a beer you can buy in the shops.
Here's a video I found from 2008.
How to end our Wandle celebration? Personally at the end of every walk I like a beer to reward myself. But what has a river got to do with beer?
Ever since the Wandle passed under a train line in Merton, it's changed. Less playful, less happy. The river has been hiding away from the Wandle Trail. Keeping its distance.
This nation should be celebrating a high quality beverage produced by highly skilled craftsmen. One of the few things we actually make in our country. We should be celebrating and ringing its name on high.
GMG to drop original programming and cut staff at Channel M – guardian.co.uk Says something about local TV in the UK if Guardian Media Group can't even make it work in a city the size of Manchester. Sam Smiths Pubs Locations Sam Smiths are a strange company. They don't do music. They don't advertise. Food is usually very basic. It's hard to buy their beers anywhere other than their pubs. They only sell their own products, with the odd exception of McCoy's crisps. They don't even have a website. Their pubs don't even have their logo on it. They don't particularly innovate. At all. And they haven't put their prices up (bar duty) for about 18 years, so you can get a pint for less than £2. Oh and they have some of the finest, best looking and well looked after pubs you'll find in the UK. But you'd never know where they are. Unless someone created a website to tell you… Top marks to James Gretton then!

Guinness - a pint of the black stuff. So well known it's even in the spell checker on my PC. And when you're in Ireland, you can't escape the stuff. It's everywhere.
