REAL ALE APPRECIATION GROUP
Meetings will generally be on the fourth Friday of the month but this is flexible. Times also vary depending on the pub in question’s opening times.
Next Meeting: Friday 23 November. The next session will be at ‘Ripleys’ in, guess where - well, Ripley was the answer. 2pm till about 4pm. All are welcome to join us at this comfortable little micro pub on Oxford Street.
Following Meeting: Friday 28 December. To be arranged.
Report – 26 October 2018. Due to late changes there were only two members of the group who attended the session at the ‘Whats Your Poison’ in Alfreton on Friday 26 October. However we had good conversation together and with some of the locals, who helped us to draw up a list of local micro pubs for future sessions.
The Ales tasted were: 1. Infinity by the Blue Monkey Brewery, a Pale Ale at 4.6%. 2. Scarlet Macaw by the Oakham Brewery, an American Pale Ale at 4.4%. 3. Plum Porter by Titanic Brewery, a fruity dark red at 4.9%. 4. Destitution by the Leadmill Brewery, a Pale Ale at 5.3%.
The first 3 ales all scored similarly, but each for different reasons, whilst the ‘Destitution’ ale was a clear winner for both of us.
