  • Beer Hiatus: Ballistic Oaked XPA

    This was actually very nice.

  • Beer Hiatus: Dreams of Green Hazy IPA

    A NZ/Hong Kong collaboration. The beer itself isn’t green but quite pleasant. Nothing weird other than the label.

  • Beer Hiatus: Cherry Pie Bakery Imperial Stout

    Brewers doing stupid things to beers works better on stouts that have a strong enough intrinsic flavour that they can carry the taste of other things. This would have been a better drink on a cold winter’s night but was pleasant regardless.

  • Beer Hiatus: REINVIGAM8

    No, no, not a hiatus FROM beer but rather a combined run of short posts about beer while I’m working on some important Felapton Towers business (fixing the tiles, repointing the gargoyles etc). Today we have the not-entirely-serious ‘reinivigam8’ beer that is selling itself as sports-drink like beer. I can give it 10 out of […]

  • Solar System – complete

    Here are all the planets (and other things) from the past few days in one place. Rules: 1. Pick a whole number from 1 to 11 2. Find the picture below with that number 3. Discover secret aspects of your personality! 4. Change the number you picked because that last one didn’t suit you. 5. […]

  • 6: Mercury

    Tough, strong and you know how to face up to the heat. You are on the inside track. True, there are bigger deals in this game than you but you’ve played with the biggest and you are still going. Some unpleasant people might call you ‘half-baked’ but you have two sides to your nature and […]

  • 7: Earth and Moon

    Once you were alone but then you found your good friend the moon. The attraction between you is obvious even though the moon can seem cold and distant. You are also covered in water. I don’t know why. Do you not have a towel? Sometimes you worry about all the things living on you and […]

  • 5: The Sun

    Not many people can crush hydrogen into helium but you can. Everybody feasts on all that positive energy that you radiate. That can be a bit tiring for you but you have the internal resource to keep going. You are at the centre of things but sometimes it can feel like people are avoiding you. […]

  • 4: Uranus

    Uranus is big, blue and full of methane! Yes YOU are the king of dad jokes. You, in a very non-gender specific sense, are the essence of dadness: supportive, keen on family friendly pun-centric humour and also you roll around your orbit on your side. True, you are named after a god who was a […]

  • 8: Saturn

    Sporty and keen on accessories, you know how to make a strong visual impression. People notice you, which can make you feel self-conscious. People think you and Jupiter are rivals but in truth you value the support you get from Jupiter and admire their unique style. You also have more moons than you not what […]
