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.
