Earlier this year I visited Bruges and really got into fruit –flavoured beers, so I was pleased to read that Warwickshire’s Purity Brewing Company has launched a new Belgian style limited edition brew. Maravilla Sour is a ruby coloured raspberry sour, available at the brewery shop and online.
In the newly released Hardens Restaurant Guide, Birmingham has the UK’s fifth largest number of high scoring restaurants. As well as the expected Michelin-starred eateries Harborne Kitchen and Original Patty Men are also highly rated.
Sad to hear that one of my favourite local restaurants has closed. Restaurant 23 in Leamington shut after a gas leak in October, I just assumed that this was a temporary measure, but their Facebook and Twitter pages haven’t been updated since then. If anyone knows what has happened to Curtis Stewart and the team do let me know.
