Terrible Swede the "Earthy" Lutheran Blog vs The Largest Filipino on Earth vs "The Fluffy"
Doctrinal differences are important to the Lutherans because at the root of every false doctrine is the devil, seeking to destroy the Gospel.

Back Tracking A Little...

Good full beer. 1 pint 0.9 fluid ounces. 6.0% ABV. Camra Gold Medal 2001 (A British award?) Around Mary: A beautifully executed bottle-conditioned ale. Split this one with Dan the Geologist on my birthday. UPC: 62067 02810.

To the right of Mary: RCH Brewery. West Hewish. Weston-Super-Mare. Hand brewed ales. Ale Mary is bottle-conditioned by Wessex Craft Brewers. The ale, therefore, contains live yeast and matures naturally in a bottle, producing the sparkle and complexity of a cask conditioned ale. Store upright in a cool place and pour gently to avoid disturbing the natural sediment. (Swede comment: some people like the sediment - I'm impartial.)

To the left of Mary: Ale Mary - A dark, rich spicy bottle-conditioned ale, resonant with Christmas seasonal flavours (spelling error :P ) and designed to take the chill off the coolest winter night. Ale Mary has a warm and sweet aroma of cloves, corriander and ginger. The palate provides touches of rum, raisins and sultanas, with a dry fruity finish. This ale has been exclusively brewed for us by Paul Davey of RCH Brewery.

Does anyone know what the Camra Gold Medal is?



  • CAMRA is the Campaign for Real Ale. As far as I know, it's a british organization that promotes "real ale" which has a number of regulations, mainly that it has no added carbonation except what occurs from fermentation. it is made locally somehow (not a big ol' factory in other words). In general, where CAMRA shows up on a label or a sign, good beer will be found. I discovered that first hand when I was in England and stumbled across the 32nd annual Cambridge Beer Festival in Jesus Green, sponsored by CAMRA. Real Ale Rocks.
