My TV Debut: The New Rowley Birkin

It's not like me to go blowing my own trumpet about being a "beer expert", let alone a "leading beer expert", as if it's some kind of competition. In particular, when encountering the alchemists who actually brew the stuff I'm more than happy to STFU and remain humble in my ignorance.

But "beer expert" is what Lakes TV have called me for a Rowley Birkin scene about beer for Christmas shot in one of my favourite local pubs in my South Cumbrian homelands, The Queens Arms at Biggar Village.

You can watch it here (you'll need to follow the link that bears my name as there isn't a specific URL).

You can also catch it on proper telly, Sky 203, at 8pm this evening (Thu 9th December).

My computer appears unwilling to take the Lakes TV route, so it will be left to the marvel that is Sky+ to capture this mind expanding contribution.

Seriously though, TV! It's all mightily posh and impressive!

Telly beckons then and I suspect you will be talking about telling us to call ‘your people’ when us poor wee mortals want some wisdom from your font of Cumbrian goodness.

Well done Jeff. You achieve the almost impossible of looking better on TV than in real life! (A compliment - honest). That's career opening stuff.

Also I happen to have two bottles of Vampire at home so I can put your words to the test! Do you think it will go with Lees Harvest Ale Christmas pudding, coz that's what we'll be having?

I thoroughly recommend CV for Christmas pudding matching.

Lots of suitable fruity flavours with moderate/low bitterness, a plethora of malt flavours, strong(ish) alcohol – should work perfectly.
