Real ale! In Japan! Who'd a thunk it?

That's very nice Alex. Real ale, mmm. However, you are letting your Lewes roots down quite considerably by drinking the evil brew that is Greene King. When the Lewes Arms is finally forced to stop selling Harveys you'll just have to pray that the locals don't realise it's all your fault.

Yes, I know, I did feel a pang of guilt at that, and I was careful to explain to my drinking companion the moral ambiguity with which we were imbibing this brew. However, given my East Anglian links, I felt a certain nostalgia, and I think anything which can be done to convince producers of fine ale that there is a market for their product abroad is a good thing. We can't leave it all to the Belgians!

Do you know Who woulda thunk it? by Greg Brown? Always brings a smile when I hear it.
