BREXIT thoughts
7/7/2016 2:02:04 PM
For the record, I would have voted to stay in the EU but unfortunately myself and a considerable number of other ex-pats were not allowed to vote. As yet we don't what the implications are for UK nationals living overseas and I suspect that this will take sometime to resolve.

Switzerland is in a similar position so it will be interesting to see if the result affects the rights of UK nationals living in the country. My feeling is that as there is nothing we can do to affect the result and whilst there are still a whole host of variables surrounding the exit, the country must simply roll its sleeves up and get on with the job in hand. Who knows, this may be the collective kick up the seat of the pants that the UK needs....

Of more immediate concern is how this may impact on the export market and will it make importing beer more difficult? It certainly lowers the costs associated with doing so which means that I can still pass on great and unusual beers at a reasonable price. 

I will shortly be receiving new stock from Badger Ales in Dorset and whilst I have had to include that old favourite, Tanglefoot, I have tried to vary the selection so that it provides a good cross section of styles and tastes. I am especially looking forward to trying the amber ale, Daring Diver and enjoying a glass of Morning Glory in the afternoon sunshine. This ale has a wonderful peachy flavour and aromatic nose that makes it a great summer beer.

These should help banish the Brexit blues and enliven the enjoyment of summer - now that it has finally arrived!


P.S. Anyone who knows me, knows that I hate the term Brexit which I have only used here as everyone understands it!

Perhaps there is hope after all.........
