    I agree really good, I'll get a couple more now

    Mmmmm beer. What beer are we drinking tonight?

    Beer fairy from DEYA arrived...



    And last night introduced a colleague from Krakow to the delights of Brew By Numbers and Cloudwaters 73 Enid St, on the Bermondsey Beer Mile...




    We enjoyed the Session IPA and the 21 Pale Idaho7, Citra, and a couple of Cloudwater IPA’s.

    Next time he gets to visit Moor Vaults, London Beer Factory Barrel Project and Anspach & Hobday.

    My luck ran out yesterday Alan - no Raven on! No problem, made do...



    Then to the Dun Cow, where the Castle Eden Ale was in good form...

    and very nice in the Alps it is too.

    My usual tipple is Wainwright as I live in Cumbria, so this is a way off the piste....

    San Miguel is a nice lager, on a hot day or long day it's a good pick me up!
    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    I've enjoyed many a Cloudwater ale, in fact I've one in the fridge for tomorrow. For tonight though it's Pressure Drop's Tamborine Mountain DDH NEPA and Brew York's Skunk Anansie Sour.

    Thursday Beer

    Not sure where you are but if you see Brasserie du Mont Blanc beers give them a try.

    Nice action! I really like Pressure Drop, this year they’ve just been knocking them out of the park.

    Off to Cornwall tomorrow for two weeks with a box full of fun and two trips to Verdant in Falmouth planned. I will try to drop by Skinners in Truro too. Watch this space...

    Off into the city later, and with it being a fine day it’s a good time to pop into the Half Moon for some Draught Bass as the hoi polloi will be outside being irradiated, smoking, vaping, shouting etc etc. The bar then is a cool respite from the heat. I’m hoping the lack of Raven has been rectified in the top house.

    Morzine, and currently drinking an IPA (brewed in London). But Mt Bl is just down the road, so I'll keep an eye out.

    Well just right for sitting in the garden with the first one. Pedigree Amber Ale. Very nice it is too.

    8hrs in the car for two weeks in Cornwall.

    Unpacking wasn’t unpleasant...



    Nipped down the local pub for a pint of Tribute and a pint of Proper Job with an old pal before coming home to fish’n chips with a pint of Marble Hip Escape IPL, and then a refreshing, zesty DDH IPA from Cloudwater to finish off the evening.

    Started the evening off with one of these. Really very good. Would have drank more if I hadn't been driving later

    Ah, Long Man. Haven’t had one of their wares for a few years now (mores the pity). I used to buy their blonde and APA from Oddbins Beer Shop in Blackheath and then they stopped stocking it. Fantastic stuff.

  27. #1677
    Possibly being gluten intolerant thought beer would not be for me anymore but come across some Brewdog Vagabond in the supermarket yesterday evening and it’s very tasty.!

    I was aware of them but had not tried any of their beers before. It was particularly good so I will be keeping my eyes open for more.

    Yesterday I "just happened to be in the vicinity" so it would have been rude not to pop in and stock up. Fortunately the shop was still open five minutes after they were due to close.

    Oh I like the look of that selection! One or two look familiar, in fact I was drinking the Double Dry Mopped only last night...

    Double Dry Mopped

    I'll be calling the beer shop tomorrow and reserving any more cans they may have in stock!

    Another highlight in that little lot above is Wylam Brewery's Jakehead, sadly it has been a while since last trying it though.

    Jakehead Supercharged IPA

    Mmmmm beer. What beer are we drinking tonight?

    Cheers to you @Cardshark - can’t disagree on the Wylam

    I happen to be a crowdfund investor in Verdant Brewing Co, so will be heading over to Falmouth to pick-up whatever they’ve got fresh off the line in the next two weeks, and trying the seafood bar.

    There's always a Verdant or two stocked in the shop I use, I'll be sure to support the business next time I'm in there

    Ahh, the joy of a Bank Holiday weekend. After a day digging out some bushes in the garden, I'm looking forward to seeing the cricket highlights and having more than the one bottle of beer.

    Mmmmm beer. What beer are we drinking tonight?

    Mrs Mag decided to lift a load of slightly crooked flags up out the back to pull out some roots. They are of course relaid now, but the two hours in the hot sun brought on quite a thirst. I got the job done, showered, just in time for the kick off of the Toon game, having at the outset cached some ale in the fridge. So . . . (library shots)










    Vintage cars in the city tomorrow, seems a good day for a wander down and about with a camera . . .

    Sunday night Wylam Mosaic Wheat IPA time...



    Pretty punchy, but very smooth. The Untappd description says

    “17.6° Plato | OG 1072.4 | ABV 7.0%

    Mosaic Wheat IPA... A thick creamy IPA with wheat malt and torrified wheat. Mosaic leaf in the kettle, Mosaic BBC and Cryo on the cold side giving out a complex profile of mango, blueberry, bubblegum, stone fruit and earthy pine.”


    Certainly get the creamy/smooth, stone fruit and pine. Bubblegum? Not yet.

    It's drinkable, we stayed in Lichtenstein recently and a small mistake was made on our bill, so rather than the faff of a refund they gave us a couple of crates of this, which is brewed just down the road from where we stayed in Schaan.

    Vintage cars and cameras. An excellent duo (with beer that would make a superb trio!).

    Burnt Mill isn't that far up the road from me and whenever my shop has one of their "Fog" series of ales in stock I'll give it a try - Fog refers to the type of yeast used in the brewing process.

    Aerial Fog

    This one's worth another purchase though I'd put Citra Fog ahead by a single point with Pure Fog and Nelson Fog after Aerial.
