Be grand to have you again mate. A pub or two has closed since you were here last, but several more have opened, including another brewpub, and there are a couple of small breweries that open their doors on a Saturday morning so people can lay on their backs and drink straight from the tanks.
Good to see honest to goodness puritanical outrage. No decent pub would be complete without someone rubbing the spittle from their chin as they tut-tut in the background.
From yesterday. Had to get new bike brake pads, but local bike shop was shut, so the owners son called in and got me some. I shared some lambic to say thanks (at a distance of course!!). His hen quite liked the 2016 Boon Black label with Mikkeller branding.
Tut-tutting at hoppy beers?
Lovely sunny day yesterday (Wednesday), as is today.
Four beers in the garden, three new rates.
Cheers to ‘Beers of Europe’.
Made an order, but not sure when it will arrive. Still hoping for it soon.
Not a beer, but an old friend from Cyprus I found in ‘Beers of Europe’ when having a look!
Happy Friday all, work has finished so starting early and time to crack open a beer (as not sure if i will be drinking around 21:00 CET so posting early)
Great first choice, keeping it UK with a 3 way collab from some of my favourite UK brewers…
Have a good Friday/weekend all!
You mean lager & lime?
I’m an old school beer drinker. I like malt. I’ve never been a fan of bland malts and fruit cocktail flavourings. I’m somewhat more forgiving of a lager & lime if there is some character involved, like lots of yeast.

Tonight I’m drinking but not rating. My Electric Bear box had a couple of duplicates so trying them out and will rate on the second go.
Kazbek the Friendly Ghost. An understated beer, and a hymn to an underrated hop.
My team had virtual drinks at 4. Only two of us had a drink. It was like being at work.
I was looking for something like this! Well done!
