Night out tonight. Highlight being La Trappe bock on draught. Lovely stuff.
Started with the Off Tempo milkshake IPA..then tried a few of my own ..brown porter and AIPA...with a very average Indian takeaway...in fact it was crap!
I wonder why I bother....if only to get a rest from cooking stuff when we have guests..
Simply Gluten Free Pale Ale
Turned out great ,considering first attempt at home brew ,will definitely do another
Visiting my old Crystal Palace stomping ground and enjoying a pint of Gipsy Hill Hepcat, brewed about ten minutes walk away. Got to say its a v nice sessionable IPA.
@Horners are you outside The Great Exhibition?
Thornbridge California Sun IPA whilst perusing new recipes and moto gp practice on in background
No.1 son is losing by three card games to his Mum (and only drawing with me) so I'm celebrating with pint or three.
It's a Cherry Lager that's in its prime! It's pint No.3 of the afternoon as the first 10 litre Growler emptied after the first two! That's a bit worrying because I only have about 55 litres of brew left!
More from my father's Day beerwulf box...Houblon Chouffe IPA to start.
I drank all the tins last night...
Anchor Brewing Baykeeper IPA - pretty good IPA
Cloudwater West Coast Pale Ale - bog standard, generic crap
The Kernel Imp Brown Stout - effing delicious
Buxton x Omnipollo Yellow Belly - outstanding
Arbor Breakfast Stout - effing delicious
I am proper disappointed with that Cloudwater beer. It is the first one of their beers that I have tried and, given their rep, was expecting so much more. £4 for a 440ml can of generic rubbish! I am not amused. I have another one of theirs in the fridge. A DDH pale ale. If that disappoints, I doubt I will be spending my money on their products again any time soon.
Agree re the CW West Coast Pale. Their drinks are generally of much better quality. How was the DDH Pale?
Cloudwater ddh series is where their best beers are.
In Penrith again tonight so sat in the fell taproom. Excellent selection. On my third different sour beer. Their bramble is best of the bunch so far.
Drinking it now. Much better. Not sure it's worth almost a fiver per can but that's a debate that will rage on.
Working my way through a current batch of "Sauvineka Gold" - my latest golden ale featuring Neslon Sauvin and Motueka hops:
That’s what you call a good looking pint
Well it's early... I've just had a pint of strong stout which I call 'sinking ship' very nice too with a thick peanut butter sandwich... I blame Robinson Brew Co - https://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/threads/robinson-brew-co.82189/#post-827200
Grapefruit DIPA homebrew of course
Haha you're welcome.
I'm very much enjoying a few pints of my Oktoberfest. Clarity and carbonation is now perfect after 2 weeks at 7C and 15psi. Loving that Munich malt flavour.
That looks a cracker
Drinking a selection of Foxes Rock beers bought for me by my wife for Fathers day last week. First is a session IPA, It's not bad but not great either.
