Munching down fish and chips while enjoying a pint of Broadside is a must-do when visiting Southwold. Even if your face is more battered by the wind than your cod is by the fryer; and even if you're soggier from the rain than your chips are from the vinegar.

We Scots don't have the best reputation when it comes to what we put into our bodies. It is said that smoke too much, take too little exercise, and that what most of us eat and drink would make our French and Italian comrades wince.

Women used to be the master brewers (brewsters) in years gone by and they made damn fine beer. In medieval times, brewing was women's work and they made beer as part of the family's food.

It sounds pretty sound. Until you realise that the whole palaver is a strange sort of amends to the community, for pissing a lot of people off with their previous crowdfunding campaign, which was accused of making light of the plight of trans women and homeless people earlier this year.

Beer is still one of our most popular drinks, but in many people's eyes it lacks the sophistication and versatility of other beverages such as wine. In recent years, it's seriously fallen out of fashion, associated with either laddish binge-drinking culture or the cagoule-sporting CAMRA fans.

I have a shady history with wine. I like drinking it, I like the complexity wine can deliver, but when we hang out together for longer than a couple of glasses, I go one of two ways.

Late in the afternoon, while still at work, I can smell hops coming off a fresh pint of beer. The scent is so strong it feels almost real. I don't work in a pub. Or a brewery, although the thought is increasingly tempting.
