1 and 1/2 Days to go until the end of Dry January! Missing a beer

I have worked hard to support Northumberland and local North East brewers, and successfully campaigned to get the duty on beer reduced. This success saw me celebrate in the past with Hadrian Border brewer, and local constituent, Martin Hammill. I have been round his Newburn brewery and his beer is superb. I will definitely be having an ale to celebrate the end of Dry January at some stage next week.
But once again it is fair to say that being sober for a month has been a great health boost, and I would strongly recommend Dry January to anyone.
