    1664 earlier, just finished a Peroni, just deciding on Hoegarden or some strange looking cherry beer in a paper wrapped bottle I purchased from the supermarket.

    I have had said cherry beer on a previous occasion and it was very tasty but I recall Mrs Sish pronounced it "delicious" and polished it off. I think it's Belgian. The beer. Not Mrs Sish. She's a quarter Norwegian but I'm not sure which quarter...

    Carling. Seriously, bloody Carling :( That was all that was left after a festive hammering.

    I have made a start on the north Manchester Snozzle lake; Proper Job and Tribute, which arrives in copious quantities courtesy of all the thoughtful people who realise what a nice chap I am when Christmas present buying crosses their minds.

    Had a glass of Chocolate flavoured wine with dinner (think Ruby port with a flake dipped in it), followed by a Cobra to take the taste away

    Proper job and Tribute making it's way all the way up to Manchester? Both good beers

    I have a full case of Tribute to tuck into with some friends when they come over.

    I do love Skinners Brewery's beers though.

    I'll need you to pick me up, and then run me back home if that's OK. I just live in Northumberland, so not too far for you to go ;)

    Like many, I suspect, I feel I've indulged a bit too much over the last few days (food and drink).

    I did have a couple of Cobras on Boxing Day evening with a curry and a Paulaner weissbier with my Pizza last night, but I'm going to have a couple of days off (and eat a lot less) as I feel decidedly bloated at the moment!

    NYE, I'm the designated driver, so I'm going to make a point of doing something interesting on NYD, possibly going over to Brooklands for the annual GTG as I've never been to it before (usually - if I'm awake/sober enough - I pop down to Hartley Wintney for the NYD meet up, but it seems to have declined in quality a bit over recent years, whilst getting busier, so I'll try something different this year).

    However, I do have a Christmas Ale to drink sometime, so I guess that needs to be consumed before NYE!

    That's more like it, we love those Belgian beers.

    But failing that I'll make do with some Oranjeboom Black 8.5%

    It's a bit early (plus I'm still at work) but rest assured I'll update the post with my evening's drink choices later tonight.

    Young's Chocolate Stout is a firm favourite, I love a good stout / porter.

    Also love a nice porter. One of the locals do a great Plum Porter and occasionally a coffee porter. Both taste great!

    Lovely Andy, one of my favourites before we left Oz.

    Enjoyed a few of these earlier, we are fortunate to be close enough to Lancaster to be able to buy it locally:

    I like the rum one and the caramel sort of flavoured one but not keen on the lager.

    Current favourites are harvieston schehallion, punk IPA and drygate apple ale
