508: Nene Valley – Nene Valley Bitter

20171227_192937What they say: “A smooth, full-bodied, pale chestnut traditional bitter for everyday drinking”

No argument with that. A good all around bitter from this East Anglian brewery that can now boast that most of their beers are gluten free.

Found on a return visit to a pub I first tried to get into over 20 years ago. The owner was rather ‘eccentric’ to put it nicely and I was told by the barman – who was camper than a row of tents – that they “don’t serve men with earrings”!

Not cheap but great food – the steaks were divine.
