It’s time for another boxed wine review… and a few choice photos from the the Race Rocks lighthouse!
Another piece of Mail Art from my sister! This is her fourth submission; I challenge you to beat her total.
I am extremely honoured to share with you Study Drunk’s review of my blog! Study Drunk, a journey to find cheap drinks and study spots, is a blog run by a university student in Texas. Most of his posts consist of recommendations for places where you can study and drink at the same time in Austin, Texas. Then there’s also his flattering review of my blog. Thank you, kind sir!
In keeping with the alcohol theme, I decided to review another blog that deals with alcohol. In the midst of my searches to find the blog that “felt right,” I found Stories From the Pub, a beer and spirits review site that sometimes tells of the adventures in finding new beers or spirits.
The blog is written by one gentleman who, after trying hundreds of different types of beers and spirits, rates alcohol in the fashion of The Beer Advocate. He is whisky and beer orientated but does not stop just there. With over 100 posts, you can find great descriptions of most types of beers, whiskeys and other types of spirits.
He uses a scale starting at zero to “fucking excellent.” He differentiates the scales depending on whether it is whisky (1-100 scale) or other spirits or beers (1-6 scale).

There, now that I’ve got my fake Irish pretensions out of the way, let’s get on to the real business. (I am one eighth Irish, don’t ya know.) St. Patrick’s Day, one of my favourite holidays; Guinness Stout, one of my favourite beers! Who knew that the Irish were actually good at a few things? Not several hundred years worth of English pigs it would seem!
Back in the days when this was a regular release, the Nelson BlackHeart Oatmeal Stout was one of the very best stouts from BC. For some reason it did not sell enough to remain a regular release, and now it is only available as a seasonal autumn release in bombers. When it came available in late 2016, my father made sure to acquire several bottles of the stuff!
Recently I went out for dinner at the BNA Brewing Co. Eatery with my Mum and Aunt in Kelowna. At the time I was too engrossed in the moment to take any notes or photos for a blog post, but in retrospect it would have been nice to take some photos of the charming interior.
