    Cans of Guinness while I try and guide Tottenham to the 2016 Premier League and Champions League titles. Stupid Football Manager will be the end of me.

    Coopers Pale Ale from a jug at the bowls club across from where I live. Too nice an afternoon not to. Now home and about to drink what will be probably the first of several bottles of Oud Beersel Oude Gueze and half-heartedly make spaghetti.

    It was great. Lente is a stunning beer as is the Armand and Tommy. Oude Tart and The Vine were very nice too. We popped some non-sours as well as of which Smoking Wood Rye was probably the pick.

    All Day IPA. Not sure on it tbh.

    Good stuff. Love the Armand series, but can't remember if I've had Lente.

    Also yet to have Oude Tart. Quite a few people bash Bruery sours but I think they're generally very well done with clear points of difference from Belgian and other US sour/wild ales.

    Got me some DFH Sah'tea, My Antonia and Birra Etrusca (Bronze) from the recent shipment; so excited for the Sah'tea but might give the Etrusca a go tonight.

    So far tonight I've had a Lagunitas Maximus IPA, very very nice! Just finished a favourite, Kosciuszko Pale Ale and now just poured a Southern Ocean Ale and my god it's delicious.

    Started off with a quality Summer ale from Endeavour (fairly new and seasonal), which was very enjoyable and then finished with, the classic, Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout

    Last night was listening to Screaming Life/Fopp, drinking Loser to celebrate 25 years since Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman founded Sub Pop records. Nothing (else) to say, really...

    That is so cool! Where did you score this from? Does it come in a (deep) six pack? ;-)

    I wish I could have found a (deep) six pack;) Found it at the oak barrel in Sydney. Wasn't seeking it out but I saw the sub pop logo out of the corner of my eye. If you can't find any where you're at let me know and I'll post you some.

    Makes me want to watch Hype! again.

    In Melbourne for the weekend and kicking off with a Boatrocker Summer Stout at Slowbeer. Delightful start to a pleasant afternoon.

    For those interested, Dans has Bitburger five litre kegs for $30. The kegs are not the open and consume type either, apparently ok for up to 30 days.

    Split a growler of Riverside 777 Double IPA with the old man. Both really loved it. Crapped all over Tusk.

    Good day. The summer stout faded into Riverside/Cavalier Belgian Pale at the Royston, Four Pines IPA and Thunder Road Colonial Ale at Y&J then dinner with some interesting wines. Now Brew Cult Supa Fly at Penny Blue.

    Finishing off the sixer of 55 with some Red Rooster. Haha, paired well. Not sure I'll buy this again though.

    Just did a side by side of Little Creatures Pale Ale vs Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, both best before August 2014 (both in good condition): Little Creatures, while a decent beer is just too harsh tasting in comparison. The hop flavour is just too rough, where SNPA has the clean, rich cascade-y goodness and is much more-more-ish. Has LCPA changed? jury is out, I reckon it has been fluctuating for years based on hop availability / prices.

    Just to clarify the above - I do like LCPA, its a good beer - SNPA is just a class above IMO, and I think its the hop selection.

    SNPA sets the standard.

    It does. Proves its not how many hops, its how you use them......

    Monday night was introducing a friend to Cantillon Gueuze and Armand & Tommy and the band Propaghandi (still one of the best names in punk). The beers blew his mind, the band less so. On reflection, another band I probably shouldn't have been listening too before I was a teenager. Then again the media filtering in my family wasn't particularly good. My nanna took me to see 'Schindler's List' for my 10th birthday because 'You like history.'

    Monday was too many beers, which meant I was a bit fragile for the cricket at the WACA on Tuesday. In the box I was in, there was a choice between Boags Premium and Hahn Super Dry. Neither one really did it for me.

    Tuesday night I had Rogue Santa's Private Reserve (tis the season etc). I wasn't impressed. Wasn't offended, just not wowed. I give it 3 'meh' out of 5.

    Nothing like drinking some rare Stone and Wood that I can't seem to find anywhere other than the last two six packs in my bottle shop :D

    Not really Wet your Whistle, but this seems the general all purpose posting spot.

    Two things:
    a) Merry Christmas to all. Seasons gree...blah, blah, blah. etc.

    b) it's my birthday on Monday. I'll be at the Flying Scotsman from 12 until 12 if anyone wants to come and talk rubbish. I've met a few of you (Eamon, Andrew, Lukie, Dan etc) but it would be nice to put some faces to names.

    Chris, the owner of the Scotto, is usually good for letting me bring in outside booze for small tastings, so feel free to bring something down. Miss M is also making a 1 meter long Darth Vader cake, so feel free to come and eat that too. His limbs are Chocolate and Guinness cake, his body is Whiskey and Lemon if that floats your boat.

    Take care over the holiday period.
