We love crafts of all sorts and local artisan food. Recently I got to know Scott who as well as being an IT geek is an expert in the dark arts of Microsoft Exchange; spends his spare time at the family pub, or to be more precise in the old stables at the back of the pub.
Here Scott has converted the stables and created the first new Brewery in Ingoldmells since 1898. Well on finding this out we had to find an excuse to make a visit, and so this Saturday we spend the morning visiting local furniture places trying to source a large dinning room table. Afterwards we headed east to Ingoldmells to drop in and visit Scott at his Leila Cottage Brewery. After a chat and a quick tour we headed into the pub where Scott kindly treated us to a free couple of beers. Of the three I think Ace Ale was our favourite and we will definitely be placing an order for Christmas.
With the local baker in our village and several Lincolnshire Breweries, a local coffee roaster its seems the old arts and crafts are doing well in the Lincoln area.
If you have any local crafts people, do please try and support them otherwise all we will have left will be chain stores and supermarkets.
