Baseball, Ian? Did I know you were a fellow fan? Please tell me you’re not a Yankee fan. Oh - I would add me as potentially obsessed with The Kernel if I lived over there.

I wish I could get obsessed with a brewery, I cant even get excited about a beer these days. Its one of the few bad parts of my life, that i have access to beers that 4years ago I would have went crazy for, now I skip past and dont even try them.

If someone starts an all berliner weisse brewery that sells amazing cheese, within walking distance of the pub, I’ll get a flutter of excitment i guess.

But the funny thing is, I’ve been drinking Gadd’s beer on and off for 10 years now and it’s only, I would say since the big explosion of the new Kent micros in the past 2 years, that have really made me appreciate just how good the Ramsgate beers are.



A definite slow burner.



A bit like Summer Wine. Took me ages to get into them.

to be fair, they weren’t very good for the first year or two! since then however, they’ve been pretty bloody good!

in fact in the Early days they came across like brewdog fan boys with beer that wasnt as good.

now there much lower key and theyre beer is WAY better than brewdog
