Beers, in England? Offthread somewhat, but in the interest of building a greater global aiki community, I propose you have a pint on me, after training. My former profession as a brewer served me well when my wife and I visited the Midlands (esp. Chipping Norton/Hook Norton area) and thoroughly enjoyed Hook Norton's wares...and couldn't have enjoyed more beautiful country than by Avon in Warwick (except God's true lap, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan).
At our Dojo, we're a pretty close bunch, and most regularly go out. When my wife and wee one (she, not an aikidoka, he, a budding one at two years) can come along, my kin and I will often join.
