So Cask Ale Week launched yesterday at the Betjeman Arms in St Pancras. The first thing that struck me about the event was how stunningly beautiful Melanie Sykes is in the flesh. The second thing that struck me is that the only journalists in attendance were me and a bloke from The Publican.
So in the face of total and utter indifference from the British press and, it seems, the beer community, let’s have a caption competition instead. The winner receives a free copy of my new book Hops and Glory, on publication date – now a mere eight weeks away.
(Oh by the way, the less attractive person in this picture is TV’s Oz Clarke).
Away you go!
