I’m writing this after my first beer inside a pub. It was glorious. I think we’ve all made the best of drinking at home. Luckily The Beer Musketeer was a salvation for any craft beer lover. But… there’s something to be said about a spontaneous pint with friends or even on your own. Chatting with locals and bar staff as you ponder life (and most importantly beer). Now we get to swap our lockdown tales whilst chugging our favourite brew and supporting all the independent businesses that make our city and beer scene what it is.
Right now, in Portsmouth there doesn’t seem to be a better time to love beer. There are so many bars providing excellent ranges to suit all tastes, and no longer do we have to sit in the rain to enjoy them. From the expansion of Staggeringly, to the exciting Make Make crowd funder and Southsea Brewing company bringing us the beers we love. If you fancy a trip across the water to Gosport, time spent at Fallen Acorn and their mix of traditional and modern beer styles does not disappoint. There really is something for everyone. Why not treat yourself to a pint and celebrate getting through this last year.
I’ll see you there.
