Anything else you want to tell us?
I can’t stand beer pundits who rant on about the provenance of beers because they are brewed in a geographical location. Good beer needs quality raw materials (especially water), yeast, equipment and brewers. I have tasted naff beer brewed in lovely places and lovely beer brewed in naff places!
