He spotted me writing down notes on my ale and came over to introduce himself.
He seemed excited to find a young American interested in British real ale.
His son-in-law is American, and he had been to America several times. We talked about American beer, and he said that the Americans have “mastered” the IPA.
After that he kept bringing me glasses of his ale to try. We both gushed over Black Cat, an amazing beer at only 3.4% alcohol.
Sometimes it’s fun to meet other geeks.
