We like beer. Ms Monkfish’s poppa was head brewer at Ansells Brewery in Birmingham back in the day so her beer roots are triumphant. She popped out smelling of hops as her Pops worked twenty four seven to maintain maximum beer output for those thirsty midlanders….and they’re a thirsty lot. Not only that Ms Monkfish herself worked for Bass and her sister worked for Allied Domecq. Keep it in the family…there’s a snippet about her poppa below, click the pic.

This just caught our eye – the London Craft Beer Festival, taking place on 16th, 17th, 18th August in Bethnal Green. Click the pic.DSC_2876-2-620x350
