    Mmmmmmmmmmm...If I won the lottery I'd spend the rest of my days drinking Hawkshead beers in the Lake District.
    Absolute fucking bliss.

    Un-Human Cannonball; Buxton Imperial Black; and Tiny Rebel Hadouken.

    My farts tomorrow will smell divine.

    With that much booze in your system you should be able to use your farts as a flamethrower....

    If you've got the spark, I've got the methane.

    My friend tried that once, the flame doesn't go out when you stop farting, it goes in... or in his case gets stopped by his trousers which promptly catch fire.

    Haha. Someone in a University class of mine once tried it, and said the room thereafter smelled like "burnt hair".

    In celebration of actually having a couple days of good weather I cracked open a bottle of Jarl and a bottle of Birds & bees. Nice and refreshing

    I know what you mean, why do we need it confirming by our taste buds that this beer that looks awful
    is going to taste worse lmao

    If you ever get the chance to trade for a Big Sky Olde Bluehair, an English style Barleywine, don't think about it twice. Just opened and drinking one from 2008. Near 5 years old and it can hang with the big boys like Thomas Hardy and JW Lees.

    I was half thinking of cracking upon a beer
    but with hearing about RS
    I don't think I have a beer good enough to open tonight.

    If you guys have any Orval then toast Simon /Reluctant Scoop with it. Don't have any so myself so the back up is Punk IPA, straight from the bottle. What a shit day this has turned into.

    Bottled landlord tastes like malty bland lager compared with the cask version :(

    Just had an Orval to toast, a Stone Epic Vertical 12 12 12 and a few others tonight. Am holding on to a Unhuman Cannonball as I type (with my right hand) but I'll resist it for the time being. Very Stone-ish type packaging on that bomber. Very.

    tonight was a little special, 2nd Birthday for The Sparrow. I thought it deserved a special beer so I took along a 2003 DFH 120 minute IPA 750ml. It was gorgeous.

    Just finished a BBF West Coast Red, it's fantastic. Top notch stuff.

    I've now cracked a bomber of Punk - to Scoops.

    Now I'm back in English are 2 years away, I'm hitting up loads of Kentish Ales. Best so far is a Porter and an IPA from a winery :)

    Just a quick nip today , couple of pints in a rather nice beer garden in my village in the sunshine.
    A pint of Bath Ales Special Pale Ale, lovely stuff fighting way above its 3.7% strength. Then it was the turn of the Brain's Rev James , difficult to ignore because I really enjoy it. Strangely, I didn''t think much of it when it was brewed by Crown Buckley.

    Fridge is a bit stuffed so a bottle of Oakham Citra ,followed in no particular order by Kernel Simcoe, Oakham Bishops Farewell, mcEwans Champion, steak, mushies, sweet potato chips, onion rings, pepper sauce. Would have been into a shed load of Allendale END beers and their saison but the EDL cretin convention in the Toon scuppered that.

    Sure they're subhuman, brainless, racist, prominent browed, discount sports store clad, knuckle dragging, Sport reading, sink hole estate dwelling shit smears, but they came between a man and his beer run.

    THIS WILL NOT STAND!

    Exactly. Race hate is one thing, but preventing the acquisition of decent beer is a step too far.
