  1. I'm trying to start writing about beer a bit more often, just published my first attempt at a longer article here. It's a bit of a love letter to one of my favourite styles of beer, hefeweizen.
  2. Yeah, Kernel are still brewing IPAs like they used to. If you're after a proper West Coast IPA, keep an eye out for Elusive's Oregon Trail. It was my beer of the year last year. Two others that I was impressed with recently are Fallen's Platform C and Top Out's The Cone. Both are great examples of that 2014-2015ish style of IPA that UK breweries used to do a lot of: bitter and hoppy on a light malt base. Inspired by the West Coast but with less malt presence.
  3. A word of warning if you're buying that BBNo pack and it's been a while since you've drank their beer: all their beer is very much on the New England, hazy, low bitterness end of the IPA spectrum now. I bought a box from them in October or November and was really looking forward to the mosaic session IPA as I remembered having it quite a few times back in 2015, but unfortunately it was a completely different beer. The whole 'all our IPA is New England style but just called IPA' thing has really put me off them.
  4. Bought them from here. https://motorsport-wallart.com/
  5. My wife got me a few pieces of wall art for Christmas, just finished getting them up on the wall. The plan is now to fill this wall with other tracks so I've just ordered Suzuka as well.
  6. I've just drank this. It was absolutely delicious! Drank it a bit quick though so now I'm feeling a wee bit drunk after one beer. https://t.co/LYukKcxFPk?amp=1
  7. That overtake was absolutely fucking brilliant!
  8. The Carlin team representative just did a shooey on the podium.
  9. Another County fan! I just bought these for my Uncle's Christmas present.
  10. I just passed my Certified Beer Server exam.
  11. That's exactly it. They pre-date even Brewdog. They're also predominantly a cask brewery so they don't need branding to compete with the likes of Cloudwater and Siren. Not the beer it once was.
  12. Did you have any trouble drinking them quickly? I was really tempted as it was a great price but there's no way I was finishing six litres of beer over three days midweek.
  13. I'd probably try a few supermarket ones before splashing out on the expensive ones. Westmalle Dubbel, Tripel Karmeliet, Duvel, Duvel Tripel Hop are some that are readily available for not too much money. Waitrose even stocks Boon if you want to down the lambic rabbit hole. Definitely have them chilled, but perhaps bring any of the darker ones out of the fridge half an hour or so before you drink them. Definitely pick up a nice Belgian beer glass for them as well!
  14. Have a look for their HBC 472 dry hopped stout as well. It's absolutely fantastic.
  15. Check out Overtone. They do a few good sour beers and I don't think they're too far away from you.
  16. FUCKING YAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! Can't fucking believe it. First major tournament since I was 8. Went so mental when that penalty was saved my wife rushed downstairs thinking we were being robbed.
  17. That sounds really interesting. Keep us posted!
  18. Funny, you've just scaled up and I'm thinking about scaling down.
  19. Some fucking balls on him when he's directly contributed to seven years worth of boring races.
  20. That was fun while it lasted, eh?
  21. Did a spot of brewing today. A 4.5% best bitter hopped with East Kent Goldings. Should hopefully be pretty tasty.
  22. My only experience with their site was earlier today when Craft Beer Channel had a box on there. It was definitely slow and a bit unwieldy so I think they just have a crappy site (or a lot of traffic today, to give them the benefit of the doubt). HopBurnsBlack (recommended up the page) is one of the best places to order a mixed case. Cracking selection of beer and it's run by a really nice bunch of people.
  23. Williams family are out.
  24. 'Go Verstappen' and drinking from a shoe? Sounds like that guy doesnt even watch F1.
