Lovely sunny day here in Shropshire: been opening a few things to help empty the beer fridge.



Wife, daughter and myself started off: just me now as they’ve cleared off to different friends houses.



Krombacker Pils to quench the initial thirst.



Henniger Kaiser Pilsner as above (but a can brewed in Greece).



Aufsesser Dunkel: love those flip-top beer bottles.



Slater’s Haka: a New Zealand Pale Ale that goes down far too easily.



Willy Nilly from Brains: pleasant ruby coloured ale with plenty of red berry flavours.



McEwan’s Export: just because it happened to be in the way.



Now it is quieter in the house I’m having some treats starting with a 33cl bottle from France: l’Abbe des Anges.



Anyone else drinking at home this evening?

Eclectic mix there;

I’ve had

De Molen Hamer & Sikkel - a decent porter with some smokey action.

De Molen Pijl & Boog - a bit thin and in your face ABV

Either moving onto Founders Porter or Thornbridge RIS

Just had a De Molen Tsarina Porter. May crack the new Beavertown Imp Stout soon, Heavy Water I think it is

I’ve only got two De Molen beers in my stash and I’m allowing them to age a little.

2009 Rasputin

666 Hel en Verdoemenis

I will however have a Dutch beer with you both: a Hertog Jan 2012 Bockbier, not the same I know, but it’s the best I can do.

OK mate: I’m at my local ’Midsummer Fayre’ tomorrow, as ’The Wellington Ceremonial Ale Taster’ I’ll be dressed up in all the gear and having to pop into a few pubs to ’test’ the quality of their offerings.

I’ve a few more for this evening yet though.

Was about to open a ’Manchester Star Ale’ luckily I noticed the 7.3% ABV before doing so: the females will be back soon and I don’t want to be shit-faced or fast asleep when they do.

A 5% Freeminer brewery ’Gold Miner’ is the beer of choice.

I’m about to have a coffee as I’m on nights this week, however I’ve got a weird beard saison for in the morning when I get back, hope the sun comes out to play.
