We were all set to go to Hidcote Manor Garden on Monday, but given that it didn’t seem to want to stop raining plans changed.
By lunchtime we were at the fabulous Ebrington Arms – not that I’m complaining – a nicer pub with better beer and food is hard to imagine.
We started with Prescott Hill Climb, 3.8%
A smooth golden pale ale named after the traditional racing of mostly classic and vintage cars at Prescott in Gloucestershire.
And Stroud Brewery Budding, 4.5%
A pale ale with a grassy bitterness, sweet malt and luscious floral aroma. Champion Beer of Gloucestershire 2006 & 2008, a finding I’m more than happy to endorse.
And we finished off with Severn Valley Dursley Steam Bitter, 4.2%
A sparkling summer ale full of flowery hops. Brewed to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the “Dursley Donkey” which ran on the branch line which served Dursley and the Cam valley.
It wasn’t all about the beer, we did manage to sample amazing things from their menu too.
When can we go back 😉
