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.
Tomorrow morning I leave Belgium and head to England. In preparation, I am calmly devouring the remaining bottles of Belgian beer that I have acquired during my three weeks here. This blog post happens to be about one of them.
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!
It’s time for another boxed wine review… and a few choice photos from the the Race Rocks lighthouse!
The whole time we were in Cuba, I thought this beer was from Guatemala. Turns out I was wrong.
I just got back from an eight day, seven night trip to Cuba with my friend Ian. The purpose of the trip was to explore the vintage 1950s feel of the nation before any large American corporations get their grubby paws in the door, but we also had plenty of time to sample the cervezas nacional y bebidas nacional.
So Stella Artois decided to release a cider. Although I suspect that it was AB InBev who decided to release a cider, and they chose the Stella Artois brand as the route they would take for marketing. Unfortunately this cider—which by virtue of being a cider brewed in New York has nothing to do with the famous Belgian pilsner—is a rather dull tasting affair.
