A blog describing the delights of drinking British Real Ale. In the 80's when I started drinking the choices were frankly poor, but now with over 750 breweries to choose from, we couldn't be luckier. I've sampled but a few of the thousands of beers, but hope to pass on some valuable knowledge, and look forward to the process too!

Alton's Pride - fff brewery
Squeezed in a pint of this Sunday lunchtime at the Wetherspoons at Oxted station (£2.25).
It's a really smooth pint and one I would recommend you trying. It's an easy beer to drink with a great bitter flavour.

After years of fine tuning, our vision for Alton’s Pride is complete. A traditional amber bitter brewed using water from the Hampshire chalk hills. Full and clean tasting, initially malty then citrus fruit and resinous hop build to a quenching bitter finish.
