Summer weather is in full swing here in Laradise. And, as far as I'm concerned, nothing goes better with summer sunshine than a tall glass of icy cold ale. Picture it - a balmy breeze, golden sunshine, and the crisp, malty goodness of a pint from Bond's (or Accomplice, the Library, Altitude, Coal get the gist.)
