Apologies for my absence

Well, what can I say? It’s been so long since I posted anything. The main reason has been the massive renovation work I have been doing on my Victorian House, which was built in 1890. This is about coming to a close, so I expect to be back brewing at the beginning of March. Having said that, I did manage to do one of my famed brewing walks on Wednesday 15 February. My brother wanted to sample some of the fine pubs in Worthing, Sussex, so we started at Hassocks and walked the South Downs Way to Bramber, where we followed the River Adur path to Shoreham-by-Sea. From there we caught the local train to Worthing. We had booked a room at the Travelodge, so we had all night to tour some great pubs. The finest pub in Worthing must be the Seldon Arms – great range of real ales, pleasant staff and friendly locals. Also managed to get in two micro-pubs – Anchored and the Brooksteed Ale House. I think the total was 14 pints in all over the day. The weather was shocking – heavy rain and mist – so no good views from the Downs, but it was a very pleasant day none-the-less.
