Back in November Jo, me and our neighbour Jim, went along to the Dudley Winter Ales Festival. It was an amazing trip into the Black Country', very evocative of my childhood and all the Saturday shopping days I spent in places like Dudley. The festival was a hoot, so friendly and the beer was delicious:-P After leaving the Festival we visited the Olde Swan,(or Ma Pardoe's as it's known locally) in Netherton. Jim took along his old CanonA1 SLR; the photos he took, really bring back the wintry atmosphere of. As you can see from the last photo, I was pretty involved in the sampling process. Great company, great beer and we'll do it again next November...come along if you like....the more, the very merrier!
If there is a heaven does it taste like this?
