I am the Beer Cruiser and I live on the edge of a town in Essex in England. I am a forty something and I love drinking bitter and trying new ones. I make my own beer because like it some much and wanted to know more about it. I have had a bar made for me just so I can store my own home brews. I have travelled quiet bit through the UK and supped many an ale. I savour the delights the local brews while I am there.
I wanted to share my experiences that I have with drinking beer. Not just any beer might I add, but drinking bitter. Good traditional, proper English ale. It entices me with it wide range of colours that can be golden to the dark rich stouts. They have delightful tastes that can tickle and dance on your taste buds to the one that are strong and powerful and show no mercy. Then there are the aromas that fill my nose and can keep you guessing with the ingredients used. All of these items can make a good bitter but when they are balance correctly it keep me so satisfied.
I do like the social side of drinking. I tend to drink in pubs and not at home. I do my best to stay within my limits and not make and fool of myself, hence the name The Beer Cruiser rather than The Beer Steamer. I like being in the pub with my friends. I love chatting, the banter and the laughs that take place with the jokes the mick taking. Being introduced to new people and finding out more about them and what makes them tick. And to top it off, have a good, well-crafted pint of bitter on the go. But then again who doesn’t. Well we all want a part of that deep down, the feeling of being part of a group, being wanted and feeling needed?
So if you are like-minded then please feel free to get in touch via this site. I will not make out that I am an expert, far from it and I am not here to preach to people. I am an observer and I am just recording my observations. You do not have to agree with me and I am sure many of you will not, but please do not take offence. This is another reason why I like drink, it brings people together, it gets people talking.
