Like me you probably have a patchy track record of getting your old man gifts for Father’s Day. You probably, like me, end up getting him some beer – it’s a default gift.
Well, if you’re going to give the man beer, why not give him some good beer?
While at the Royal Cornwall Show at the weekend I obviously spent some good time wandering the aisles of the food and drink pavilion. One of the stands was taken by the Penpont Brewery, a small brewery based in Altarnun, on the edge of Bodmin Moor. It’s run by Joe Thomson, a gloriously young brewer, on the family farm. And they make damn fine beer, using water from their own bore hole and barley
I had come across them previously but was happy to see that they had some new, at least to me, beers on sale. So I picked up a selection -An Howl (The Sun), session beer Cornish Gold and their Ginger Beer. Three more different beers you won’t get.
