I got bought a selection of beers from the Americas today, they should keep me going through the second lockdown
New bar on Gloucester Road for the Bristol heads with a decent list. Sidney & Eden
Nice, will definitely check this out
You definitely should. Didn’t have a bad beer all night
Morrisons pick up this afternoon, 4 for £10 offer, very decent
Had a 2012 Fuller's Vintage tonight, very malty, i loved it, my drinking buddies less so.
Noticed it was £100 a bottle on Fuller's (I paid £5 for it in 2012) not worth that much, but I enjoyed it.
How does it work for a beer to be a vintage? I understand the process behind wine and champagne as based on the season. Not sure it translates to yeast and hops?
They change the recipe slightly every year; it's bottle-conditioned and over 8%, so will continue to develop in bottle over time.
Direct fom the fridge this is tasteless, or I have Covid.
Hoping it flavours up as it warms up.
Having just checked the beer cupboard, I have Fuller's 2007, 2012, 2017, 2018, 2019 left. Might have to save the 2007, as I've only got the one (unless someone wants to give me £hundreds for it? Thought so...), but might crack a 2012 once I've shifted this cold...
It is v. good that
^ sounds ace.
Marble Stout for first time in forever. Had to use big glass too.
Anyone aware of a craft / london beer advent calendar - wouldnt mind buying a few for friends if any are being sold, and the only ones i'm aware of are brewdog and beer52. Anything more local welcome
Honestbrew have got a couple.
Edit - fixed the link, managed to post something random.
Beavertown do one in October, local but possibly not considered “craft” by the cognoscenti these days
Gravity Wells taproom has just opened on Midland Rd, E10. Galaxies Apart is a personal favourite.
Turkish supermarket, unremarkable imported larger beer but a remarkable price, two for £1.50
This was much better, has a creamy aftertaste
Drinking this whilst cooking lunch. It’s pretty much like you’d imagine, strong Belgian special brew like someone mixed beer with rubbing alcohol and caramel
What are the odds? DDH DIPA
Tiramisu Pastry Stout
Mains and dessert sorted, might have a Tripel as the starter.
What are the odds? Quite fruity, can taste its strong beer.
Surprisingly alcohol-y taste really.
Zia - Tiramisu Pastry Stout
Sweet, very coffee, very vanilla. Possibly my new favourite dessert beer.
Will be buying more.
Lovely smooth sugar cane taste to this one
I had both of these yesterday from Woolwich Tesco Extra and came to same conclusion. Also someone in SE London seems to be buying all the Brewdog Layer Cake Neopolitan stout from every store before I can try it
