Bluffer’s Guide to Beer – Review

  After a fantastically gorgeous Saturday weather wise (as you may have read about in my last post), mother nature decided enough was enough and on Sunday we were back with the standard winter rain. So I did what any sensible fellow would do and retired to one of Cornwall’s many fine drinking establishments to while away the afternoon.
