I just scared the kids stupid. I was shouting at the television. It happens more often than I would care to admit.
"No, no!!!!!!!!! That's total f****** crap!!!!!!"
Why was I shouting? Porter and Stout. No change there. It's a topic that often makes me scream. To be more specific, Oz Clarke's potted history of Porter. It was just on. You missed it? A couple of minutes of myth.
To be honest, I rarely get through a television piece about beer without shouting or swearing of any kind. The treatment of beer in mainstream media is even more annoying than beer forums. And that's saying something.
Anyone know how to get in touch with Oz Clarke. Someone needs to put him straight about Porter.
Nice cameo from Beernut, though. Looks a good laugh, the Bull & Castle.
