Think local

In today's world we are encouraged to stop and enjoy slow food - food that is produced with care and thought, using traditional methods.  We are encouraged to buy from small local producers in order to reduce our food miles and support the local economy.

So it is with great excitement that I have discovered that I can do all these things by drinking Brodie's Beer - a magnificent selection of bitters and ales, brewed in a stable block behind a pub, by a brother and sister team, just 0.9 miles away from where we live. 

The William IV pub, next to the brewery, sells over 16 Brodie's Beers on tap, for an unbelievable £1.99 a pint.  You can buy bottles to take away too.

I like to do my bit.


  1. Oh, yum, that looks so good. And the more you drink, the more satisfied you can feel! We are lucky to have probably Australia's best brewery (Coopers) in our city... not quite as close to home as yours, but still family-owned and all. They do the best Sparkling Ale, Pale Ale and Stout.

  2. Mmm I think you need to keep up the good work! You certainly can't get more local unless you start brewing yourself.

  3. Well done! I love beer from small breweries. We have quite a few localish breweries which we like to support. I love all the different bottle and label designs.

  4. Oh that looks refreshing!! My eldest bought his first war hammer pieces yesterday - saving for the paints now - has your son started his collection yet???
