Tell us about the beer!
10:10am Tuesday 24th April 2012 in Letters
It was with great interest that I sat down to read ‘Vine Dining’ by your correspondent Katherine MacAlister, but what a disappointing article.
Yes, the changes to the Grapes pub were well described, as was the food in great detail, but hang on a minute, the article states that “...George Street has finally got a decent independent boozer...”.
So where is the description of the beer?
Ms MacAlister, do you not realise that Bath Ales are probably one of the top small independent breweries in the country?
Don’t you realise that their beer range is one of the most beautifully crafted and varied?
Probably not, as it doesn’t seem that you or your guests sampled any of the excellent ales on offer.
Fair enough, real ale is not to everyone’s taste, but surely this is one of the most important features of the rejuvenated Grapes?
