Beer Degustation

When confronted with too many choices I'm often wanting to try a bit of everything on a menu so a beer tasting paddle is a great way to try a selection of beers on offer at The Local Taphouse. I was thinking of just choosing the five most expensive beers but I decided to let the bar staff decide which ones to try and also place them in the order of drinking. It's a little scary picking up the paddle for the first time and manoeuvring your way back to your table through a busy crowd, but it's all part of the fun of drinking. I find this pub nice and cosy with it's vintage furniture and it's a nice place to sit down and chat over a drink earlier in the night before it gets too busy.
