Ales from the crypt…

…Is the rather catchy name of the beer festival that takes place in the crypt of Liverpools catholic cathedral, which I attended on wednesday night. From my hazy recollections of the evening I would *STRONGLY* recommend Lindisfarne Mead if you ever get the chance (14.5%, ouch). It’s brewed by monks in Lindisfarne/Northumberland I think. They had a disappointing amount of Yorkshire beers but they did have some good local beers from liverpool, for example Cains raisin beer.
