Thursday 16th December would be the final Thirsty Thursday ™ of 2021, and wouldn't it be a morale booster to complete my first county of the 2022 Good Beer Guide before the year was out?
I turned to my most successful BRAPA county, West Yorkshire, in order to achieve this, having fully 'greened' it every year since 2016.
I'd put in the hard yards (literally) the previous week on the outskirts of Oxenhope, so tonight's remaining duo should be a walk in the park in comparison. Both on train routes, even though it is probably easier for me nowadays to get to Newcastle after work than our first location, Todmorden.
|Two to go! We can do this|
A cancelled train meant I needed to change at Hebden Bridge rather than L**ds to stay on track. Ah, Hebden Bridge, a town I marvel at every time I visit. It never disappoints. By which I mean, the stereotype of a town full of ghost loving, hemp weaving, arts and craft centric vegan lesbians is always adhered to. Purely for my amusement, I assume.
But surely standing on a train platform for twenty minutes until my connecting service arrives was not likely to yield further Hebby B blog material.
Wrong! Try within seconds of stepping off the first train, onto Hebden soil......
I hop back on the train, home via L**ds, pull out the Good Beer Guide, and for a few moments, I admire the fully green sight of West Yorkshire, feeling all self satified.
|DAMN YOU TAYLOR, I'LL GET YOU NEXT TIME!|
Ta for reading, and join me tomorrow, for the 'happy part' of a two-parter in and around Tamworth.
