Yep, do my fair share, usually around the south-east. Do a few bike jumbles and ride outs too.

I have probably bumped into you over the years then, I spent a fair few years on the rally circuit , I even got married at one of the NABD northern ones. I also used to run a stall selling bike parts, most were American imports.

If you've got any suggestions for beers that you'd like reviewed, let me know and I'll hunt them down and review them.

Excellent stuff.

I’m probably more of the craft beer ****er spectrum in terms of beers I enjoy most but these are good viewing.

Just a few beers you could possibly review Elvis Juice, Old Tom, Bengal Lancer, human cannonball, pogo and anything by Aegir Bryggeri

I love my craft beer too mate. Gonna be reviewing a good few very soon. As for Bengal Lancer, that's definitley on the radar, it's probably my favourite Fuller's beer. Certainly my favourite English IPA so far. I'll get hold of the others and see what gives.

Nice one.

I'm going away with the ever fragrant Mrs Monkeybubbles next weekend and I'm taking your mum's book with me. I'll have a butchers at some of your vids as well, so that if Mrs MB insists on some 'special time together' I'll have something to think about if I need to postpone the splurge.

Good choice. My boat race has been known to turn milk sour and stop locusts dead in their tracks.

Glad you enjoyed it. Not anti German or Belgian beers at all either. They’re one of the 3 masters
