Whilst perusing the unexciting range of beer being offered at the next 'Spoons festival one made me do a double take and then raise not one but two eyebrows. It seems Elgood's are doing a beer called Hawkwind.
I shouldn't have been surprised though. As Hawkwind are near universally accepted as the greatest band the world has ever known the real surprise is why it's taken so long to have a beer named after them. It does leave me with a terrible dilemma though: do I have to go to the 'Spoons festival now? Normally my answer to such questions would be you shouldn't do that, but a beer called Hawkwind does tempt me. Who knows, it could be the right stuff!
