  • They all sound decent. Enjoy.

  • Tonight's sampling Camden Beer Imperial Pilsner.
    11%, oof.

  • Controversial beer choice. Excuse Simon's blurry photo.

  • Currently supping a pint of Dark Arts Creme Brulee.
    Pretty sweet, very vanilla, a little watery.

    Barkeep was surprised I had a 2nd pint.

    Would have a third if I wasn't leaving soon.

  • Co-signing that Villages Tuba is fucking rubbish

  • This is nice, aged in sherry casks so tastes a lot boozier than it is

  • St Mars of the Desert are doing a meet the brewer in Bethnal Green.­

    They've got a fair bit of brewing history (under different names) from their time in the USA, and I've really enjoyed quite a few of their brews now.

  • Ooh, Mother Kelly's is great too. Not conducive to dry Jan though, dammit!

  • I'm taking part in Ginuary.

  • Beer Merchants have an online bin ends sale, mostly guff but they have at a lot of the Belgian Xmas beers Inc Bernadus Xmas for £2.10

  • Guinness and Partizan collaboration: I'm a bit undecided on this one, it's full of interesting flavour but I'm not sure if I like it.

  • Daft question : wheat free dark beers. Are they a thing?

  • This was ace.

  • Visited the Innis and Gunn taproom in Dundee earlier in the week, as it was next to my hotel. The regular stuff was all right, but the VP 03 Bourbon barrel imperial stout was very nice indeed. Rather regret not having picked up a bottle now.

  • Aldi had loads of the I&G barrel aged stuff in before xmas. It was very nice.

  • Wheat free or gluten free? If the latter, hit me up for recommendations.

  • A few bangers recently, courtesy of Mrs Landslide:
    Left-Handed Giant - Double Dot Matrix. Black cherry and cocoa stout, 8.3%. Tasted slightly tart on first sip, but soon became a delicious wave of sweet goodness. Think Black Forest Gateaux, but not ultimately crumbly and disappointing.
    Basqueland - Beste Bat. Hazy IPA with no dodgy connections to Piti. Nice and juicy.
    Northern Monk - Wants and Needs DDH pale ale. Patrons Project collaboration with Barrier Brewing Co. Slightly dry.

    I've also got a bottle of Rasputin awaiting a suitable occasion, barrel aged in Bowmore casks...

  • Successful trip to Waitrose!
    Wild Beer Co millionaire milk stout
    Einstock Icelandic White Ale
    Hitachino White Ale
    2 x Fuller's Vintage Ale 2019 (1 to drink, 1 to keep)
    2 x Marston's Bottle Conditioned Imperial Stout (1 to drink, 1 to keep)

  • Nice one. I've been waiting for that Marston's to hit the shelves - Martyn Cornell did a piece about it being brewed - so will have to check out my local Waitrose.

  • Not tried it yet, but am keen.
    My local had maybe 5 on the shelf, I took 2, only £4 each.

    They also had the IPA in a box, but I do not care for IPAs so left them there.

    (I'm in proper Essex)
