Two Time Hugo Award Finalist
Nothing fancy today, just ‘draught’ Guinness in a can. BUT it’s a novelty can featuring a 1950s advert.
I guess I’m the tortoise…
Nice! I have a set of 4 pint glasses with those characters on them.

Oh-so-many big fireworks displays here last night, on the Sat leading up to Bonfire Night. I love fireworks.

It’s tortoises all the way down…
Except where it’s toucans
It was actually six cans
I’ve got one of those cans too. I should drink it. Guinness is never “just” in any form.
Friends went to the brewery and sent me a post card with the toucan saying “G is good for you” in Irish. It went at eye level on the fridge.
Speaking of being good for you, I always enjoyed the fact that Invalid Stout was a thing. In this case, “invalid” referred to hospital patients. It was a high sugar, low alcohol stout that was supposed to be good for those recovering and trying to get their strength back. Does this still exist in Australia? Carlton & United used to make it.
I keep thinking that some trendy brewery should bring the style back. Or just use the name. Maybe a non-stout stout would be invalid.
So, Leeds is fun. Went to a speakeasy last night, had bathtub gin. Kinda tired this AM
