For every storm, a calm.
For every thirst, a beer.
The secret behind a great pint is a great landlord - Arthur Bitte. His selfless devotion in the pursuit of good beer means that he feels honour-bound to taste his wares on a regular basis to ensure absolute freshness - that is about a pint every half hour...
