Caught by the River

Caught By The Liver – Stinger Beer

23rd January 2009

After literally gallons of Young’s Kew Gold, I still loved it, but needed a change. The bloke in my local offy, we’ve got to know each other well obviously, recommended Stinger Beer. At first I was a little apprehensive. Thing is it’s a River Cottage product, Mr Fearnley Whittingstall’s. I don’t know about you but the battery farm chicken malarkey just got a bit too much and I was Whittingstalled out. Anyway I took his (bloke in Offy – not Hugh’s) word for it. I have to say it’s great. Really tasty beer. It’s made from English nettles (hence the name) and is clean, crisp, organic and incredibly drinkable. Its 4.5% so you can drink more.
Since then I’ve been loving River Cottage ‘Gone Fishing’. Thoroughly enjoyable programme. Thanks Hugh. Crying about Chickens has been forgiven (for now at least).
