Lately I have been rather inconsistent in publishing blog posts, so here’s a rather short beer review to tide you over until the meatier posts reappear.
Yesterday I walked 3 miles North from my house to the village of Haxby, where I stopped in at the local pub for some weightlifting. 20+ ounce weights to be approximate.
One of my friends left this New Zealander beer in my fridge, and since it could be a while before I see her again, I decided to drink it! I made sure to jot down some tasting notes though as a token of my appreciation. Thanks!
Sometime about the middle of July last year, my friend Scott came up from Victoria for a visit and a few drinks. Unfortunately he arrived when the valley was so smokey from forest fires that none of our beautiful sights could be seen. So we decided to do more drinking instead; a party pig was in order!
In early February I took advantage of a couple of days off by going to Scarborough for a mini vacation. Not Scarborough Ontario, but Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast. I figured I would stroll along the beach and perhaps find a pub or three to drink in.
I have visited Leeds a few times now, and I have to say that it is quite a nice city. The photos in this blog post definitely don’t do the city or its pubs justice, and so I will have to return and do a more thorough analysis, specifically of the lovely pubs along Briggate.
Back in early December I took a trip up to Scotland, first to visit my old school chum Jamie in Edinburgh, and then afterwards to visit another old school chum Patrick in Glasgow. Patrick met me with a large bag full of local beer, and being rather touched by this fine gesture of his, I made sure to review at least one of them for him!
