For the final matches of Group H, I chose to take an extended lunch break in order to watch the first half at a nearby pub (Burns Hotel does not have televisions, as do none of the Samuel Smith’s pubs). On this occasion I chose The Old White Swan (part of the Nicholson’s chain) which is actually a collection of buildings, many of which originated during Tudor times. Despite the warm weather, I opted to go for the intriguing coconut milk stout!
During the Iceland-Croatia World Cup match, I decided to drink the bottle of Guinness Original XX that had been sitting in my fridge since sometime in March.
My parents have arrived in England for a 3 week tour around the country, and so I will do my best to keep this blog up to date with remarks upon some of the more interesting drinks and adventures that we find ourselves on. Such as that flat tyre 10 miles from Stonehenge.
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.
Most of my readers back home will be familiar with the local favourite Dark Matter, brewed by Hoyne Brewing Company, but what if I told you that England has a veritable clone of the Dark Matter, courtesy of Atom Beers in Hull?
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!
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.
