Since it was such a nice day, Mike and I decided to walk home from work. And since we were enjoying the walk along the canal so much, we decided to make an outing of it, stopping at the halfway point, The Royal Oak, for beer and munchies. Who ever said commuting had to be an ordeal?
I have to confess being a little slow to accept the nice weather. Today’s outing was my first patio sit of the season. Fortunately The Royal Oak had the perfect beer for summertime patio drinking. The Royal Oak is currently having a Best of Britain Festival (on until April 27th). As part of this festival, they’ve imported a bunch of kegs of British beer, including Fuller’s Organic Honeydew beer, a “wonderfuly refreshing golden ale”, made entirely from organically grown ingredients. They’ve even got a Butternut soup on the menu that features the beer. The Organic Honeydew is a light hoppy summer beer and I hope the Oak will continue to carry it, even as their British festival winds down.
