Chugging my double stout from my London Pride dimpled mug too!
This site is getting rather confused I think.
Come t' beerfest
Come t' beerfest
Lanky lanky Lancashire Beerfest.
I wonder if this mistake is a hang over of
American anti British prejudice
or just a genuine mistake of European beer culture
I love those- my wife found four for a couple of quid in a charity shop once- i was made up.
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
I love the 1/2 pint ones
Can never seem to find 'em though
New beer from Innocente out of Livingston – "Conscience". Very sweet but also very bitter. Nicely balanced.
Company no show
Sleeman's is actually okay
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.
Bolten's Ur Alt
can somebody point me in the direction of some German beer with strong flavours please
Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Bevis.
Mine's a Moor Old Freddy Walker ATM
I have a bottle of Old Freddy
I said I would have it at Christmas
It might not last that long
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.
Belgian Abbey beer every bloody where
xploded like a formula one winners champers
Hawkshead Lakeland Gold and a full English Breakfast
Local 2 tonight. Wish I had the 1 to go with it.
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.
Two Roses Galaxy Pale Ale. Nice drop.
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
Hand Drawn Monkey No. 8
Sierra Nevada Narwhal
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.
ha - old people
It was uber fresh - cracking stuff !
making cake and drinking William Bros
Grozet Gooseberry & Wheat Ale
a bit for me, bit for the cake
a bit for me, bit for the cake
Deschutes The Stoic. Not bad for a beer past its best before date...
Ebulum now, drink.... um now as well
Drinking my way through my delivery, star so far is the surfing monk from summer wine. I feel glad orval-over!
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.
With the beer being more cheap & cheerful rather than quality items
having myself a bit of Barnsley Blonde
De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis. Sadly lacks balance IMHO.
Ska Brewing Steel Toe Stout
as good as a cup of joe
Had a Wild Beer Epic Saison, which was pretty good and a Wildeman Farmhouse IPA so far. Big Punk bottled on 18/02 up next.
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
William Bro's Alba
I've been pining for this.
I'll get me coat.
