Down the Old Badger we have this week mostly been drinking from the local Wickwar brewery. I am a particular fan of the perfectly nuanced 4.2% Cotswold Way. A smooth, balanced chestnut ale with a terrific hoppy finish, they say. Apparently, it has been an award winning beer of Gloucestershire 2 years running and is known as the official beer of the Cotswold Way National Trail. Well, fuck me sideways with a cheese slice.
