The Ship in a Bottle

There is a beer shop in Liverpool City Centre just between the Cafe Nero and the army surplus shop on Whitechapel. It is the size of a modest broom cupboard but it has four walls and those walls are stacked with shelves a foot or so deep and those shelves are filled with bottles of beer from all from corners of the world. There are plenty of local beers including the whole Peerless range and then bottles from Holland, Germany, Belgium, the US, Canada and most other places you can think of where they make beer.

It is a good place to go to if you have an idle twenty minutes or so over lunch to stock up over the weekend. Yesterday they were selling 6 bottles of Peerless for £15.00 and then I spotted behind the counter some Welsh beer that was going cheap as it had just passed it sell by date. So I bought six of those as well and he threw in a couple extra to clear the shelf.

I also picked up a couple of small bottles of Palm to remind me of my Dutch cousins.

We drank them just over the Welsh Border sat round a barbeque watching the sun go down behind the trees after having got close and personal with some baby cows. Or lunch as I sometimes like to think of them.
