Daniel Thwaites – John Bull Ale
Not particularly rare – but a label that I had wanted to have in my collection for ages – but never been prepared to pay the price. Eventually – as is so often the case – the price was suddenly right and I was able to acquire it (all the way from America as it happens). This is my idea of a fun label – full of character. In my beer drinking days my favourite bottled beer was Thwaites Lancaster Bomber. The local pub in my parents village (near Clitheroe in Lancashire) was (and still is) a Thwaites house. There were in fact three pubs in the village (and still are, which in these days of pub closures is very pleasing).
