Bitter

I managed not to take a photo yesterday while in the pub with my other half, when I could have brought you a lovely pint of best British bitter. Today, all you get is the outside of a pub, one of many near me which are owned by Young's Brewery, of Wandsworth.* Young's make a fair few different types of proper beer, but their ordinary is just Bitter. As it should be.



Bitter is different to pilsner/lager beers in not being cold fermented, which is what most modern beer is, though that's a very recent development given how old beer brewing is. Bitter is ancient, authentic, fascinating and full of regional variations all over Europe. I do wish I liked the taste...


*(Actually not any longer, as the Young family ran out of willing heirs a few years ago and sold it to a Bedford brewer, Wells, who sadly closed the massive brewery in Wandsworth. But the name and range of beers very much goes on.)
