Quite a while ago we went out to Elm Cottage and caught up with the team from Alive and Cooking. We had a great time sampling food and beer :-). They were kind enough to make a few meals up with our Blowering Blonde and Redneck Ale. We had a great chat about it and they said they would be in touch when it was going to air. Last week we received a DVD in the mail. To our excitement it was a copy of "our" Alive and Cooking segment.
We didn't think it would be right to post it online until after it aired and that time is now. I hope a lot of you watched in on TV but for those who missed it you can watch it below.
I want to thank the whole group; they were just so much fun and completely professional. The opportunity they offered us by just allowing us a little air time is phenomenal and this kind of exposure is massive for our region.

A red ale is a form of pale ale that is categorised by its colour. There’s still debate around the fact of whether or not a red ale is really its own class of ale or whether or not it falls under the umbrella of English bitter. A red ale is categorised by a slight sweetness and tea-like flavours. It has a light hop and toasted malt flavours, making it a well-balanced beer. It is made with a high proportion of pale malts and often contains caramel colouring to give it its signature red hue. It is often that red ales will have a dry finish. These beers are very easy drinking, as our very own Tim Martin will tell you from personal experience!
