Organic Beer from Jody Scheckter's Laverstoke Park Farm

Here's one of the top ten things you wouldn't expect to see on a beer bottle:

"Good Soil = Good Grass = Good Animals = Good Meat & Milk = Great People!"

But it was the number one reason why I bought a four-pack (!) of Laverstoke Park Farm Organic Real Ale. Yes, it was expensive, but it was delicious, made with thought and, for me, worth every penny. 

More from the bottle's label, courtesy of Jody Scheckter, owner of Laverstoke Park Farm (and, by the way, the 1979 Formula One World Champion):

"I started the farm to produce the best tasting food without compromise for my family and myself. To achieve this we follow nature very strictly and have two principles we follow –slow growing plants and animals generally taste better; and biodiversity is key to a natural environment. We hope you can taste the difference in our beer."
Laverstoke Park Farm is a true polycultural enterprise; unfortunately it's about 65 miles outside of London, so beer will probably be the only one of its products I'll be able to enjoy for a while.

Here's Scheckter discussing his farm and views on food; we need more people like Scheckter in the world. (If you are receiving The Delicious Truth via email, click here to view.)
