Poor old Albie from Fullbrook has just been done for indecent exposure.
The copper caught him walking round his garden , in broad day light
piddling on his cabbages!

Beers featured this issue
Bert Grant’s from Yakima, Washington. These are hand crafted, small production, "India Pale Ale" (4.2%) "Amber Ale" ( 4.5%) " Perfect Porter" (4%).
Grant is a Scotsman who emigrated to the USA On one of the labels it says:
" Bert grant began making beer in 1945. Always a pioneer, Bert started the Pacific Northwest’s first Craft Brewery in 1982 in the heart of the world’s premier hop growing region. He also opened America’s first Brewpub. All of his real ales are hand crafted from a single Copper kettle made to satisfy the most demanding beer drinker in the world"
Modesty is not one of Grant’s virtues, but his beers
are very drinkable.
