From: Andrew Rawlins To: info _(at)_ RefreshUK.com Subject: Boxing Day Problem - Circle Master Dear Wychwood Brewery, I have made a bit of a mistake, which has led to a bit of a problem. I was unable to visit the good food show, due to plenty of snow in Aberystwyth (darkest mid-Wales), my Mrs managed, and came back with several bottles of Wychwood Ale, she was even enthused about the BlackWych and proceded to share a bottle with me(!), all this asside I thought about obtaining every bottle of Wychwood ale that I possibly could, and then decided to spend boxing day infront of the fire, with the cat and I would (sensibly!) sample all of the different bottles whilst the Mrs did bell ringing things in the local church.... What a plan, only fooled by the fact that you can't obtain a bottle of Circle Master in Aberystwyth or the surrounding area (and the only thing I can drive is a Steam train and they dont let you drive them about much these days, let alone to a shop in England)! Attached is a photo for your ammusement, if you could go some way to letting me know how I could find such a bottle, the cat and me would be very grateful. If someone could pass the photo onto the brewers in Wychwood as a token of appreciation for producing excellent Ale, that would be grand. Many thanks, Andrew & Pride, the cat.And attached(well a smaller version of it).
Came the reply:
From: "Brewers" To: Andrew Rawlins Cc: Alison Subject: Well hello there! Dear Pride, oh and Andrew Thanks for the letter. We brewers tend to be hidden away in the deepest, darkest parts of the brewery only to be let out on Friday afternoons when we've finished creating a few pockets of heaven using the dark, mysterious traditional methods (But we do enjoy a few pockets of heaven on said Friday afternoons). So when we receive compliments from supporters of our magical brews which we have been lovingly cared for over a period of days and sometimes weeks, it puts a little glow in our hearts and fills us full of enthusiasm to continue along our path. As for the Circle Master, the lovely Alison (Copied in) is going to hunt one down and send it on its long journey to darkest mid-Wales. With any luck our friends at the post office will manage to add this to your collection before the Boxing Day celebration. We hope you and Andrew enjoy your day and the beers meet all you expectations, The Brewhouse PS - I have enclosed a picture of our motley crew for your amusement taken on a recent trip to the Oktoberfest in Munich.And a photo
