300 Days of Beer – Day 191

Day 191 – 28th April 2016

300BeersIt’s another day in the world of beer drinking. As a rule, it’s a lot calmer than the political world! Tonight’s beer is from the Shepherd Neame brewery, and it’s ‘Tapping The Admiral’. A beer named after a phrase which had it’s origin in the aftermath of Nelson’s death (the Admiral, not the Simpson’s character) whereby his body was transported home in a cask of brandy, and thirsty sailors would sneak drinks of brandy from the very cask which contained the deceased hero.For more of what the brewery has to offer, head over to http://www.shepherdneame.co.uk
