Me and Mr Flintoff

Can I just say, it was him, not me, who insisted on this photo being taken and then tweeted it to his half a million followers.

He describes himself as ‘currently unemployed’, and gave a strong impression that ‘beer writer’ would be a good place to go.

Freddie Flintoff: “So how do you get to be a beer writer then?”

Me: “Well I was really shit at sport…”

Thanks to Thwaites for taking me to the cricket, introducing me to Freddie, and blowing me away with an amazing range of limited edition beers that any young buck micro would be proud of.

Look you bastards, Freddie is seven and a half feet tall and he wears lifts in his shoes. And I was in my stocking feet. And I was crouching. And he was standing on a box. OK?

Neil, Freddie is into beer. I think he perhaps has a different threshold for what constitutes 'good' beer, and is perhaps more generous with his application of that label than some of us, though that should not be read as a criticism of Thwaites – the new beers they gave us yesterday, from their seasonal range, were without exception excellent by any standards.

Freddie Flintoff can often be found enjoying a few(!) pints with mates at small cricket grounds in Cheshire. The important thing is that he is receptive to real ale and his association with Thwaites' does the real ale cause no harm at all.
