The Oddbins Take

"I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked!" Good old Allan Ginsberg, he wasn't half melodramatic. We get it, you and your friends partied pretty hard for the 50s but just because you're up at 3 in the morning discussing jazz doesn't mean you're all fractured geniuses!

What those raucous hipsters needed was a nice midweek session pale ale, a beer for a nice catch up before bed at a reasonable hour. It's a shame Gipsy Hill didn't start making Beatnik pale ale until 2013, cunningly light and showcasing US-hops above an uncomplicated malt base, it shows how much flavour can be achieved in a sub-4% beer and could've been just the beer to calm those Beatnik boys down!

Next week we'll be discussing Burroughs and why he named his son William S Burroughs the 3rd… Class dismissed!
