Recently, I was given a handful of Cornish beers, the spoils of a trip to the South West coast, and one of them was Doom Bar. I know you can buy this in plenty of places around the country, but still, it’s always a little bit more special when something comes to you from where it’s actually made, isn’t it?
I’m not a big beer drinker really, but I wanted to try the Doom Bar because… well, because Strike drinks it. Is that weird? JK Rowling’s (or Robert Galbraith’s) grumpy detective can often be found supping the amber nectar and I wanted to see if it was worth the fuss.
Turns out it is.
