Timothy Taylor Landlord has won Champion Beer Of Britain four times. It was voted the best beer in Britain in 1982, 1983, 1994 and 1999. It is allegedly Madonna's favourite tipple, and is commonplace in pubs up and down the country. Yet according to The Swindon Advertiser, it's an "unusual brew".
It looks like the beer festival held at Arkell's Brewery was a fun event but I fear for the beer list if that's one of the strangest beers.
I don't of course blame the brewery, I think this is an example of local journalists not having a clue about that which they write. I guess that makes a change from my criticising the national press.
