The weekend just past saw me back in Bury St Edmunds. I met a friend for a lunchtime session in the town’s premier real ale pub The Dove. I've blogged about this pub before. The beer quality in this pub is so incredibly good and it’s so frustrating that it wasn’t open when I used to live but ten minutes walk away.
A comment on a previous post reminded me of this. In the days when Stonch ruled as beer blogger supreme there was talk of him and his mates paying a visit to Norwich on a mega pub crawl. Anyone else remember that? Norwich was actually the winner in a poll he ran for readers to dictate where they went. I don’t think that the visit ever took place which is a shame as I feel sure that it would have highlighted how lucky we are in Norwich for both quality and choice when it comes to real ale. It certainly has to be one of the top real ale destinations in the country.
