Booze on the Ouse, St Neots

Had a great day at Booze on the Ouse, this time at St Neots. The bus out wasn’t one of the highlights and I arrived a little bit queazy but sure that the beer would help me recover!

Michael had (mainly half pints of):

  • Potton ‘The Village Bike’

The weather was really superb, and we spent the whole time outside of the (rather dull) Priory Centre, in the full sun with a lovely view over the Ouse. It was quiet outside. The area was nominally the smoking area, but luckily hardly anyone was smoking. All four beers I had were great: the most interesting being the  CaracoleAmbree‘ which was incredibly lively out the bottle, with over half a pint of head. No duffers! The Belgian Beer selection was really good, so I had more foreign beer than I normally would.

In the evening we had our first BBQ of the year, which was uplifting! It was dusk by the time we ate our M&S burgers (indoors by then). We shared a bottle of Green King Abbot with dinner to continue the theme of the day. One of the problems of daytime drinking is that you sober up by the evening, which is now for me!
