I see the owners of the Dorking Brewery are looking to sell up Frown
Best get some stock of Red India IPA in before they go, in my opinion one of the best bottled beers around!


Speaking of Dorking, and veering not too far off topic.....

To stock up with supplies for the Euros I set off yesterday intending a revisit to the superb Cobbetts bottle shop and micropub in Dorking town centre to stock up with some of their cask offerings.

En route I called in at Denbies Wine Estate, a stone's throw away from Dorking Wanderers' Westhumble ground and, as anyone who's been there will know, situated to the north of the town just off the A24 and set in beautiful countryside.

What a place. The main aim was to call into the Surrey Hills brewery, one of my favourites. The brewery is actually tucked away at the back of the winery and they have a little serving counter just inside the warehouse and a few tables and chairs outside. Beers straight from the barrel come at 2.25 a pint to either drink in from the glass or takeaway in either 2 pint, 4 pint or much bigger containers. Bottled beer available too. Four beers were on tap yesterday and the Ranmore, a 3.8% light session beer, is currently going down very nicely.

Popped into the winery itself, an upmarket place with restaurant, conference and banqueting facilities and also a gift shop, where a range of their own wines and local ciders were on offer. I bought a bottle of one of their award-winning whites, which will keep until later in the tournament, and tried a bottle of Surrey Garden Cider. The latter, a 5% light clear cider made from pure apple juice naturally fermented, was refreshing and delicious.

To complete the debauchery, there's a farm shop on site too with a good range of local produce, including a fine array of pies.

After 45 minutes there, I never did make it to Cobbetts in the end!

Thanks for the fine advertisement for Leafy Dorking and the surrounding area.

I have been lucky enough to live in Dorking since 1958.

Denbies is definitely a great day out. It borders as previously stated, the home of Dorking Wanderers and also home to Dorking FC next season before both teams will return to the completely revamped Meadowbank ground, at the bottom of Mill Lane right IN the centre of Dorking Town.

For any one lucky enough to visit the town, the bottle shop mentioned above, is in West Street, almost opposite the Kings Arms public house.

And Meadowbank's only a few minutes' walk from Cobbetts. Here's hoping the much-needed revamp at Meadowbank is done sensitively and doesn't strip the ground of its considerable charm and character.

There are pictures available on line of those dubious 'artists impressions' of the new build.

Remember the whole of Meadowbank is owned by MVDC, and the ground leased to DFC. It appears that the whip-hand as far as the ground is concerned, will be held by the Surrey F.A. who are moving into the building from Leatherhead.

I'd normally be the last person to take a beer thread off-topic but I really enjoyed my first bottle of English wine. I plumped for Denbies' Juniper Hill, one of their cheaper whites at 10.50, and it was tasty, refreshing and 'relaxing'.... or, as the tasting notes say, "straw yellow with green tinges, the wine displays floral honeysuckle and citrus notes on the palate. It is fresh, lively, vibrant and crisp with a long and fruity finish."

May have to try a couple more of their bottles as the Euros progresses....

.... and Juniper Hill is in the villager of Mickleham near to the Burford Bridge Hotel.

It leads to Juniper Hall, a nature study centre, but during WW11, was one of the training centres for the S.O.E.

OK - I appreciate this is again slightly of topic.

Going, tonight, to the Grey Trees brewery Christmas party. Hoping to buy some of their bottle conditioned beers for festive emergencies. With luck their 9% imperial stout will be ready, otherwise a case of Afghan Pale Ale or Chinookian will be appreciated.



Last new Belgian beer: Lupulus (formerly Trois Fourquets) Triple 8.5% bc (808)

Forgot to mention this place after my trip to Yorkshire earlier this year. I found this brilliant beer shop in the covered market in Sheffield city centre...

Beer Central
Moor Market
The Moor
Sheffield

http://www.sheffieldmarkets.com/...-market/beer-central

The Moor is the long pedestrianised shopping street that stretches the length of Sheffield city centre, and is an easy detour for anyone heading towards Bramall Lane. The indoor market is a bit further south and across from the large Debenhams. Beer Central is a small shop that sells hundreds of different bottled ales from all over Yorkshire, and Deborah, who runs the shop, is knowledgable about the beers stocked and is a Barnsley FC fan.

A small but finely stocked beer shop visited in Portsmouth recently...

The Beer Musketeer
112 Albert Road
Southsea
Portsmouth


...where I picked up a few samples of ales from the local Staggeringly Good Brewery, which'll make good Christmas presents for TheWavendonian if I don't drink them first. Lots more choice means more visits to be planned.

I probably won't get to taste it but I do like the look of these limited edition 24 bottles of Coopers Bitter: https://pbs.twimg.com/...=jpg&name=medium

Commissioned by the Tranmere Rovers Trust, the brew is a little jape at the expense of our not-so-gracious chum from Forest Green Cool. All for a good cause, though, as the proceeds will go into the Trust's fund to buy 500 season tickets for underprivileged kids/families on the Wirral.
