Hi Poppa, I consider myself a beer lover of the highest order. I have not touched mass produced American garbage Bud, Miller etc. ) in years. Young's bitter is a real English ale served on cask. I do suggest a trip to the brewery. Even if you can't secure a tour, it's worth going due to their fantastic pub and visitor center. This is also the optimum pub to have a pint of Young's because it's straight from the source. Take the district line (wimbledon branch) to East Putney, turn right out of the station and keep walking. The brewery is on the left hand side of the street. Distance is about a half mile or so from the station. Young's bitter is my favorite English ale and is very drinkable at only 3.8 percent alcohol. Have fun, I'm jealous, and say hi to London for me!!
