One of the greater things about watching football in America is that most matches, especially those of the EPL, are early in the morning American time, giving people an excuse to daydrink. This is part of our series discussing exactly what to drink when you’re at the pub, presented by our resident homebrewer, Keith.
The Beer: Wells Banana Bread Beer, Wells and Young’s Brewing Company, Bedford, United Kingdom
The Pub: The Queen Vic, in Northeast DC
What You Need to know: I covered a great deal of both the style and the brewery’s history when I reviewed Wells Bombardier back in April. The main variation here is that, on top of the normal signifiers of an Extra Special Bitter, Wells adds bananas and spice to the beer to create a unique spin on the pub standard.
