Summer Wine Covenant, Tying the Knot and other Loose Ends

There will probably be a couple of weeks of low-to-no content here as Kate and I are getting married in Cumbria on Friday 28th October and then running off to Scotland on honeymoon.

However, beer will play a large part in our wedding day, with Summer Wine Covenant having pride of place. You may recall that James and Andy brewed the beer especially for us and we were there for the brewday. We delivered two casks to the reception venue on Saturday morning.

We haven’t tried it yet, but Covenant should be an incredibly aromatic amber ale with lots of late and dry hopping but a relatively low bitterness. We’ve actually named our guests’ tables at the reception after the ingredients (Centennial, Citra, Vienna, Munich etc) with the top table being “Covenant”. You see? Full of hidden symbolism.

Covenant will also be available in some of the best beer bars in the North of England: Mr Foley’s in Leeds; The Free Trade Inn in Newcastle and Port Street Beer House in Manchester! Tweet at Kate and me ( @KendalMintKate & @Nickiquote ) if you get to try it.

In the meantime tips on where to find the best beer in and around Oban, Glasgow and Edinburgh on our honeymoon would be gratefully received. I’m thinking the Brewdog bars, obviously.

Also, the new CAMRA BEER magazine should be out at the start of November.  Keep an eye out for my name attached to an article and maybe even a more professional photo than my fizzog deserves.  More on that when I get back.

      Cheers Steve! I’m hoping the Free Trade will have it on then, along with Summer Wine’s Cohort, which sounds like a beast.
