Today was a day during which it began to rain. So I went indoors. Later I drank some things that had booze in them, including a can of Murphy’s Irish Stout. They were of varying goodness.

This wraps up my series of reviews on Newfoundland beers, brought to me by James in June 2015. He brought over a couple bottles of the British IPA, one of which my Dad and I drank when it was fresh, and one of which I foolishly “cellared” until November 2016. They tasted about the same though. If anything, the aged version tasted slightly better.
Khiran has sent me some tasting notes for one of the aforementioned 2L bottles of beer. He drank this one in Belgrade, Serbia.
Lately I have been watching a lot of European football (soccer) on American TV channels, and one commercial in particular has stood out to me. Amazingly it’s the most recent 30 second Budweiser commercial. Now I am by no means a fan of their main beer brands, but there are a few things about this commercial that thrill and excite me. Watch the commercial, and then read on to see why I deemed it worthy of analysis.
A couple of weeks ago, my sister came to visit in Victoria. She stayed for about a week, and during that time we had many wondrous tasting experiences with our friends. One of these tasting sessions did not directly involve her, but instead our friend Stephen. Whilst browsing the liquor store together for something new to try, Stephen and I each decided to grab a different six-pack of honey beer. It was only natural that we would then do a tasting comparison!
Recently Beer Me BC, a website dedicated to all things BC Beer, released a list of the top 10 BC Craft Beers reviewed on Beer Me BC.
This inspired me to make my own list. My list contains nine beers that I have reviewed in blog posts, and one beer that I have recently reviewed, but not yet shared my review of. Bear in mind that this list only contains beers that I have reviewed, and it will certainly change over time. When two or more beers earned the same rating, I have sorted them alphabetically.
This superbly balanced stout has loads of coffee, dark chocolate, and soda water flavours. It is only available on draught at a select few locations in BC, and in growlers from the brewery in Sorrento (party pigs having been recently discontinued).
