I spent Saturday afternoon down at 5 Degrees West in Falmouth, it’s normally one of the better pubs in the Town for a good pint, but this weekend, it was definitely the best.  There were over 25 beers and 20 ciders on offer and it was fantastic. A good beer festival is brilliant for several reasons: You get to try lots of new beers you probably wouldn’t already. A room is filled with people who drink too much beer,…

  I met up with a friend today for a catch up. As we were in Falmouth we decided to pop down to The Front. When we arrived I scanned their every changing selection of beers. I plumped for Cornish Mutiny by Truro’s Wooden Hand Brewery as I’ve had a selection of their ales before and they’re always top notch.
