Someone suggested this on Twitter. It's not a bad idea.
Sticking to a single style might seem restrictive. But because Mild has taken so many different forms over the last 200 years you could have beers from 2% to 11% ABV, bitter, malty and every colour you like.
Of course, Mild being as fashionable as spats, persuading punters to show up might be a harder sell. But, what the hell, I'm an optimist.
Anyone interested in either hosting or brewing a Mild for it? I've plenty of recipes to choose from.
For a mere 25 euros, I'll create a bespoke recipe for any day of the year you like. As well as the recipe, there's a few hundred words of text describing the beer and its historical context and an image of the original brewing record.
Just click on the "Birthday Recipe" button below.
Guilt button - brewed my recipe commercially? pay me 100 euros. It really is the least you can do.
