Last year we managed to sample many new breweries, Wooden Hand, Penpont, Greenroom for example, and beers more familiar and new from Sharps and St. Austell breweries.
Plus a trip to the Sharps brewery shop where i picked up a few bottles, a couple i still have in the shed.
I intend to go back and hopefully pick up some more Massive ale bottles, one to compare with last years, and i still have a Single Brew Special 2009, perhaps they have some 2010 now in, alongside the wonderful St Enodoc . Seeing as Mr Howe seems to be breaking all manner of stupid EU work time directives by working insanely long hours perhaps we'll even catch a glimpse of him too!
Anyway enough of the Sharps love in!,
One thing planned is a boys day around the pubs of Padstow so recommendations now please.
Plus we intend to start the Saturday with a pub lunch somewhere before or after Exeter (not wanting to go into the centre at all) either just off the M5 or the A30 towards Okehampton, so if you know a good place for food, my first holiday drink, and (well behaved) kids please post below.
If i choose somewhere i'll post its name so that Mudge can plan around that pub his Saturday tipples ; )
