A Good Beer and a Book

A Beer a Day features 366 great beers from all over the world - one for every day of the year

The 31st of July has been officially named Roaring Meg Day by beer expert and author of “The Good Bottled Beer Guide”, Jeff Evans, in his book “A Beer a Day”. A Beer a Day features 366 great beers from all over the world - one for every day of the year.

Roaring Meg is Springhead Brewery’s most popular bottled beer and has been selected by Jeff Evans as the beer of choice to quench your thirst on 31st July.

The perfect beer for summer, Roaring Meg is a smooth, cool-filtered golden beer with a citrus honey aroma. Roaring Meg actually benefits from being served cold – experts have commented that it balances out the flavours after a couple of hours in the fridge. This makes it the perfect beverage to cool off with on a hot day or relax with at a BBQ this summer.

Commenting on Roaring Meg, Richard Studney, regional spokesperson for CAMRA said; “Roaring Meg tipped the scales for me during the recent JD Wetherspoon beer festival. Pretty damn good when you consider it was pitted against some Godly brews from New Zealand, the US, Bavaria, and Belgium!”

Jeff Evans is one of the UK’s leading authorities on beer of all kinds. A member of The British Guild of Beer Writers, Jeff edited the beer-lovers bible – “The Good Beer Guide” for seven years. His book, “A Beer a Day”, was first published last August
