RATS  The R.A.T.S. - Real Ale Tasting Society

Grateful thanks to Dave Jones for the inspiration he has given me through his Society, Web-site and monthly            Newsletter of which I have been a Supporter/contributor since 2000. Sadly I hadn't attended any meetings due to distances as they are based in LLantrisant.  Then finally we met on Sat 13 Dec 2008 at The Portcullis Beer Festival in Bristol.  I wish we had met sooner!

PRATS   P.R.A.T.S. - Portsmouth Real Ale TravellerS     

Mike Hayne & I were welcomed aboard as PRATS supporters in March 2004 but sadly never managed to get aboard the coach, again due to distance as they are based in Portsmouth of course!  Fortunately we managed to cross paths with Chris and Barry at various festivals, although not for some years now.  But, thanks again to Chris, for his excellent web-site and the group spirit which has inspired us all. 


One man's mission to find decent beer in decent surroundings.  These are the exploits of Ant Veal and his friends on their quest to tour the country uncovering those all too rare pub gems and provide an excellent web guide of their findings.  An easily searchable database from which we gratefully take inspiration of a like minded soul.
