    What are you drinking 2024.

    What are you drinking 2024.

    Did you know that this is just cairngorm brewery rebranding for a different market. Can’t remember which one of their range it is now but suspect one of stag or wildcat.

    Ron blogged about Guinness in the 70s today. Got me thinking he might have a thing to say about the current product? http://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/2024/02/guinness-in-1970s.html?m=1

    Guinness

    I’m convinced when I lived in Germany in the mid 90s that the Guinness sold was Reinheitsgebot compliant. It definitely tasted different but as the local pils was better and cheaper I didn’t have it that often

    Inside the Factory - Guinness

    It looks like it starts off as foreign extra stout then diluted down. Well based on the alcohol content quoted.

    Inside the Factory - Guinness

    Interesting how they mash the roast barley completely separately. I was watching it wondering if it was forgotten about at one point.

    Belgian beer, is it all it's cracked up to be?

    I'm sure you know but Cantillon is a must visit. We also got a trip round another lambic brewery in Brussels thats sadly now closed.

    Why do you brew?

    I’ve never done it to save money… Dad brewed kits in the 80s and 90s I’d help occasionally. Roll forward to 1996 and I was temporarily out of work and bored (but not skint) so wandered down to boots and came back with enough kit to do their European lager kit. A surprisingly good end result led...
