Beer

There has been a renaissance in beer brewing in the UK and US. I think it started with the Campaign for real ale (CAMRA) in the UK and spread to the US where it is called craft beer.  Dissatisfaction with the products of the large breweries in each country started the trend. With 1400 breweries in the UK and about 4200 in the US it has taken off.

I recently found the best brown ale,  Lewes Castle Brown by Harvey’s of Sussex. I must go and see the Widmer Bros Brewery in Portland, Oregon since it combines 2 of my interests beer and trains.
