On my last full day in Vancouver, I stopped in at the Yaletown Brewing Company for a pint. I also happened to catch the end of the day’s Champions League matches, specifically Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid. My beer of choice was the intriguing English style Golden Brown Ale.
When you are alone on an island, any beer is a good beer! This bottle was courtesy of Ian, who brought it out to me a couple of weeks ago as a birthday gift. Now that I have drank it, I believe that I am ready to leave this island and head back to the land of loved ones and beer. Farewell Race Rocks!
Ahoy there. It’s been a while since my last post, but I’ve been busy exploring Cuba and its various drinks! I hope to have a few reviews from Cuba uploaded soon; in the meantime, here’s a review from our holiday party.
Ian brought over a Spinnakers beer to share that neither of us had tried before. We proceeded to jot down some tasting notes.
For a while now, my friends and I have been discussing the idea of a “Greatest Hits” pub crawl. But what pubs would we choose, and when would we do it? Lucky for us it’s exam period again (for those who are still in university) and I am moving back to Vernon, so it makes sense to embark on one ‘last’ drinking adventure together! So without further ado, I present to you: Riley’s Farewell Pub Crawl: Greatest Hits (click for map of route).
Over the last couple of years I have reviewed several beers that can only be found in stores at this time of year. So for your convenience, I have decided to put them all together into one post to help you navigate the oft’ overwhelming realm of the Winter ale/Christmas ale/Seasonal release shelves. This post is mostly applicable to British Columbia, but certain brews may be available in other jurisdictions too!
I have returned to Vernon for the rest of the summer; awaiting me was my first piece of Pubs and Alcohol themed Mail Art from a stranger!
