Aveley was a perfect example, but not the only culprit. No bitter! I ask you, no bitter! OK they had Stella’s apology for a more bitter drink (Peterman, is it called?) but like I said, no bitter. Or more precisely, no real beer. I’m not on a CAMRA campaign but wouldn’t it be nice, every now and again, to go to watch my favourite game and enjoy a decent pint before the kick-off.
Real ale would be fantastic but not essential. Just a range of decent beers with a choice of lager and bitter that isn’t over carbonated, over priced and under flavoured.
If things don’t improve I may end up taking my own favourite tipple (Black Sheep or Green King’s Abbot Ale) and paying for corkage.
Am I alone, or does anyone else regret the absence of a decent beer before the game?
