Lovely!
Please can you put spoiler tags on when you start opening them and showing them! 🤪

Picked up a selection of 330ml 4 packs in Tesco to keep myself interested in a hotel for work. Good to see Hawkshead doing these, they weren't bad. A good middle ground between the traditional styles and the newer. Vocation was very very nice.

All drank warmish without a fridge l, have no doubt the Hawks Head would have benefited hugely from being cold

I was only messing, I did it last year though just in case I spoiled anyone's surprise. I've got one this year too. A few had them last year. My tip is open the calendar in the morning and stick it in the fridge ready for evening!

I reckon they’ll all be in a different order to other people’s so it won’t matter 😝

No need for fridging - I have a freezing cold downstairs toilet where I store my beer 😉

Its a really solid consistent offering from Bells if you like centennial hops you will enjoy this beer. This beer is bangin.
I tried a clone recipe I found online. It took a long time to come good. Maybe 3 month's, unfortunately I have never seen it for sale in Ireland.

If I find a good clone, I'll shoot you a PM. I believe there is a potential one over on the Home Brew Talk Forums.

To bad we can't exchange beers internationally!

These cases are usually all the same, all off the same production line.

I am not sure what part of America you are in. I shared many of beer with @Pennine who has recently moved back. He is a top man and an excellent home brewer.
What kind of beers to you brew yourself

I'm over in Colorado just north of Denver. Not far from Left Hand and New Belgium breweries if you have heard of them.

I like IPA, stout, wheat, milds and bitters. Lately I've been brewing IPA's, bitters, and stouts. I'm currently on a quest for a perfect Boddington's pint.

@Pennine I don't normally do blind dates but if you want I could be Cilla Black 😀😀😀

I've got a really nice stout I just bottled. Pre bottle sample tastes great! Also since you are in Ireland I've got to say I LOVE Guinness! I only wish I could get it on tap in Ireland I envy you!

Tried the same half-and-half as on Sunday.
The 'Meh' Saaz Pale Ale and Hoppy Pale Ale of Kent,
This is a good drinker.
Except for the hop content, all the base malt, yeast and process is the same and mashed 13 days apart , so why not?
I would defy anyone to say it wasn't a single brew!
And, Yes, Decorations are down out of the loft and being sorted.
Apparently the Son's tree is already up.
