What a busy day or so. You come fourth in the blog awards and the world is your oyster:
- Two new authors have asked for admittance into the collegium that are the correspondents to this blog, Michael in Atlanta, USA and Matthew in Osaka, Japan. As always, the demands of correspondents are at their own leisure so we look forward to contributions when the moment is right.
- Word has been passed of the operations of Church Key Brewing of Campbellford, Ontario, about 125 km to the west-north-west of Kingston. This may bear investigations - especially of their their chocolate porter.
- The Spitfire Arms Alehouse of Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada has contacted us and we may be able to arrange a visitation by our man in Halifax, Mike. The Spitfire Arms has 17 lines in total, including two Handpumps featuring cask conditioned real ales from the Granite Brewery, Halifax and normally stocks 80-120 different beers from around the world. Look for reports in the next wee while.
- and one kind reader wrote just to tell us of three great pubs - two in Toronto and one in the UK. The first is C'est What in Toronto and their cask conditioned Best Bitter and County Ale by Wellington. The second is also in Toronto, the Rebel House which has a decent variety of micro brews. The third is the best pub for cask conditioned ale he's ever come across - the Wenlock Arms in London, England with its ever-changing list of Cask conditioned ales and farmhouse cider and really good salt-beef sandwiches.
