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 in my house that I had made for me just so I can store my own home brews. I have traveled quiet bit through the UK and supped many an ale and 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 British ale. I want promote and celebrate the glorious array of ale that this country has to offer and speak to like-minded people. I also want to introduce new drinkers to the to the delightful beverage to show them what they are missing and to put right the misconception that they might have. It would be great to get more younger drinkers onto the scene
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 love chatting, the banter and the laughs that take place. Also being introduced to new people and finding out more about them. To top it off, have a good, well-crafted pint of bitter on the go.
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, preferably while sharing a pint.
