Another very quiet and tranquil day today when everything seems to go along very smoothly.
We took Louis for his walk then shut him up indoors and went to Tesco to buy some real ales.
Its a shame that the brewery sells them dearer than Tesco so you cant blame is for shopping to take real ale to our party at Woodbridge.
Spitfire Premium Kentish Ale
was first brewed in 1990 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and to raise money for the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund. Since then, Spitfire has helped raise more than £250,000 for a range of armed forces charities, particularly the RAFBF and Help for Heroes, and has become the first beer to be accepted as a licensed partner of the RAF.
Spitfire won a 2009 Monde Selection Grand Gold Award and a 2010 Brewers Association World Beer Cup bronze while its tongue-in-cheek advertising campaign has developed a cult following.
and Speckled Hen which now we are home isn’t Sheperd and Neame but that doesn’t matter it is real Ale
The story of “Old Speckled Hen”
“Old Speckled Hen” was first brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the MG car factory in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Named after an old MG car which was used as the factory run around, they would park the old MG Featherweight Fabric Saloon outside the paint shop where it would normally get spattered in paint and so it became known as the ‘Owld Speckl’d Un’. This turned into “Old Speckled Hen” when the beer was unveiled.
Since then the finely balanced beer with a distinctive rich malty taste and fruity aroma has attracted many fans, including the fox, who is always on the hunt for his Hen.
So that was a good job done.
We then had Lunch and I cleaned the Fridge and as usually was soaking in water by the time I was finished ha ha
Another job well done now all thats left is to wash the dog ha ha !!!!
