  • Not sure I should drink this…

  • Sunday Beer: Urbanaut Beer Blender

    So here is an oddly tall can with a confusing description. Is it black forest stout or espresso scotch ale? Maybe I should look on the back. Can A? Can B? Hmm “PULL TAB”… I guess I should pull the tab then… It’s two cans!

    Beer, books and more beer…but which goes with which?

  • Sunday Beer: Dump the Trump

    Behemoth Brewery in New Zealand have made some nice beers and they also have some neat labels. This is actually their second anti-Trump themed beer. They previously had an Im-peach-ment Sour Ale which I haven’t tried (and it doesn’t sound like my cup of tea).

  • Sunday Beer: Mash & Vanilla

    The copy on the back of the can suggests this beer is a complex interplay of subtle flavours. In fact it was a big brick of alcohol hitting you in the back of the head. An expensive brick as well.

  • No, no don’t eat that*

    Life has no meaning. All the rules have gone. Cadbury Creme Egg ice cream. Actually, it was fine. A bit dull really. I was hoping for a gooey yellow inside but it was just white and yellow ice cream. *[Not an April fool per-se except that I was foolish to eat this and it is […]

  • Sunday Beer: Batsquatch Hazy IPA

    I couldn’t find a quarantine themed beer, so here is a cryptid themed one from the USA. The batsquatch wasn’t invented for the beer but is a rumoured creature from the environs of Mount St Helens https://cryptidz.fandom.com/wiki/Batsquatch

  • No, no, don't drink that: creaming soda Pepsi

    I had to. It was part of a magical quest. I think in the UK we’d say “cream soda” but in Australia they say “creaming soda”, which really sounds worse. In neither country do we usually call things “soda” apart from baking soda which is something else altogether.
