    I found a bunch of half pint ones in a car boot sale, they are nice and dinky.

    I've only got one dimpled full pint glass, the rest are glass tankard type or pilsner/wheat ones

    New beer from Innocente out of Livingston – "Conscience". Very sweet but also very bitter. Nicely balanced.

    We used to have a load of half pint ones at home when I was growing up. Never even realised they were beer glasses though.

    so far I've had Duvel, Chimay Blu and Tesco DIPA. I feel faaaantastic! I'm also glad to find my local sains stocks Kosher Coca Cola which is made with cane sugar rather than corn syrup, so may well have a cheeky bourbon and coke later.

    Back again. Too busy roaming the streets of Paris these days and ducking, diving and dancing in Chechnya. But I had an Old Stock Ale last night which wasn't bad. And a Grimbergen Noel the night before. Probably something stouty tonight.

    Had a great hour and a bit in the Cask in Pimlico to drop off Denno's beer with Ruds, managed to try
    Wild Beer Ninkasi
    Mikkeller Maraton Ol
    Dugges George IPA
    Thornbridge Sequoia
    Hand Drawn Monkey No. 8
    Sierra Nevada Narwhal
    Mikkeller Spontanwildstrawberry
    Mikkeller Black Hole Cognac Aged

    as well as being kindly gifted a super fresh bottle of Kernel Pale Ale (bottled 8 days ago)

    So overall a pretty great trip home.

    today I intend to do some rigorous QC work on Yorkshire Dales Sibeeria, a gentle 11.1% Imperial Stout which will be available at Bradford Beer Festival

    Popped in a sourced st. pancras and spent probably way too much money on some new ones which by the ratings aren't brilliant.

    Crate brewery IPA and Hobo brewery Czech lager which have both opted for the "Tesco value" look on their beers.
    Brupond Ain'cho MUm's Porter and Tip Top Hop
    Beavertown 8-Ball (looks like they have cool new paper labels)
    London Fields Marynka Single Hop IPA

    then at The Beer House in paddington had some Meantime Bohemian Dark which was pretty nice.

    At least last night I had the mega-fresh Kernel Pale Ale (Mosaic Simcoe(?) ) Ruds gave me. Bottled last monday, my dad recoiled in horror as he tasted it, saying some tosspot had spiked it with oranges. It was lovely though, you can really tell the difference in taste between stuff like that and stuff with that stale hop taste, which I assume is a sign of not being very fresh(?).

    Tonight, Summer Whine Brewery Dr Paracelsus. An odd affair with pepper, cardamom, liquorice and blackcurrants.
    It is not without its charm but not one to hurry back to.

    am eagerly awaiting my first ever order from alesbymail.com. I missed the courier today by 10 minutes, which is how it always goes. Still, I'm not drinking them tonight, so I suppose it doesn't matter! I've got the following on the way-


    Bristol Beer Factory : Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Casks

    Kernel : Imperial Brown Stout
    Summer Wine : Surfing Monk
    Bristol Beer Factory : Imperial Stout Aged in Whisky Casks
    Flying Dog : Wildeman Farmhouse IPA
    Thornbridge : St Petersburg
    Kernel : Pale Ale Stella Topaz Zeus
    Struise : Pannepeut

    Wild Beer : Epic Saison

    Not a huge selection, but some old favourites mixed with some new ones i wanted to try...

    To the Organ Grinder in Nottingham yesterday , began with a couple of pints of Guerrilla Stout , then a pint of Thornbridge Lumford , finishing off with Blue Monkey Infinity. Blue Monkey is a brewery which seemed to come in like a whirlwind from nowhere but it is a very, very, good brewery indeed.
    Today it was Springhead's Drop o' the Black Stuff , labelled as a porter and very easy drinking indeed.

    Was going to go and see if Fire Island still had the new tiny rebel stout but as it was so sunny and warm-ish, decided to drink some bottled thirst quenchers with Hop Studio Gold, Waen Festival Gold, Wild Beer Madness IPA, and Arbor Man v Beer (another straight from FV beer), and eat a load of irish black pudding.

    Not much left in the way of beer here
    so will drink a Shepherd Neame Summer Sizzler, paint myself blue
    and dance around a big fire to bring the sun back.

    having myself a bit of Barnsley Blonde

    De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis. Sadly lacks balance IMHO.

    Oh and I saw in a local shop, a Stevens Point IPA with a BB date of June '12. I mean, it's newly in stock there. Has it been shipped from shop to shop, unable to sell? Or do they deliberately export out of date beer to the UK?

    Cracking open this Bulldog
    quite a big tasty treat
    well worth the 90p

    It's a good one from Tiny Rebel. I'd prefer some more vanilla but the oak barrel gives it a smokiness that goes great with their ribs. I hope they start bottling it, it would be a go-to for me
