A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a potluck at Dr. O’Neill’s house, to which we were also encouraged to bring a bomber of Pale Ale for a blind taste test. Little did I know that my liquor store paper bag would be of a different colour from the others, and that some people can’t follow instructions very well..
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!
About a month ago, I paid a visit to my ‘long lost’ third cousin Richard in the city of Bradford. On the return train back to Leeds (where I was stationed at the time) I hopped off in Shipley in order to investigate the renowned Saltaire Brewery. It did not disappoint.
Happy New Year to all my readers! Long ago, I told myself that as long as I got more views in each successive year, I would continue to put in a good effort on my blog. And for the 3rd year in a row, I have received more views than the previous year, so that means that in 2018 I will continue to give it a good go!
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.
My next day in Brussels, Tuesday 3 October, I took advantage of our friends’ lovely backyard by installing myself with two grocery store bought beers. The cats then did their part by installing themselves on wall and lawn respectively.
