There’s an annual festival in Whittlesey. A straw-bear-beer kind of festival. Basically, a bloke dresses up in a bear costume (straw is involved), then people follow him around, drinking beer.
A couple of weeks ago, Eidnan told me about a straw bear beer, although I may have not quite recollected the name correctly. I was also somewhat critical, mainly since real ale may not be halal. Or it might be.
In the City Tavern this afternoon, I noticed Strawbeer at the bar. Realising that Eidnan’s preferred beer may not be suitable for vegans/vegetarians, I asked whether the beer contained anything dead. On being told it was fish free (the little display in front of the pump was pretty cloudy anyway), I purchased a pint.
I’d love to say that it was gorgeous. It wasn’t though. But it was OK. No, it was nice. It was a great colour and was a bit cloudy. And it was nice.
I probably should have taken a picture of my beer, but I neglected to capture such things. The pump attachment was probably worthy of theft, but I abstained.
Soon after, in Lady Greys, I had a delicious Berliner Pilsner. I did take a picture of this one, even debated stealing the glass.
I didn’t though. On leaving the pub, we observed a sign outside in the street.
It was somewhat relevant to my lifestyle, but I decided not to steal the sign (well, I’d have gotten chalk all over myself). And then we went home.
That last part may not have been wholly truthful.
