I had great intentions of having a good yarn about beer with my music mates, but I've been on the Trappist and I'm floundering and can't be bothered flol

I'm still here (just about) and cracked open a Harviestoun Old Engine Oil, an excellent Scottish stout.

 

Had a few St Bernadus, and a few Triple Karmeliet and two bottles of Weihenstephaner Heffe Weisbier (and two bottles of Black Fox cider...)

 

Sound like some proper posh cunt in his manor house quaffing fine ale while peasant's toil the far distant fields of my estate. I just love my ale mate, and in this day and age I don't have to put up with your fucking inbev/millersab/heinekinschmeinekin nonsense

 

Stick it in a pipe and smoke it

i like your style, beerwolf.

 

had a Rochefort 10 yesterday to celebrate the arrival of sub-freezing temperatures.

 

 

i've had this in my basement for a good six months, just waiting for the holiday season to enjoy.  never tried this one before, really looking forward to it:

Definitely not a warm weather beer, which is why it's been sitting in my basement for six months. I always give it a longing glance when I am down there. Will report back after I've enjoyed it.

I admire people who can have world-class beers sat around doing nothing for six months. Six hours would be pushing it with me ; )

 

Maybe if your American and you have to get certain beers exported from over the pond, I guess you would have a different perspective and keep them for special occasions.

Yes I am in the US, and have been looking for this beer since last christmas. Finally found one locally in the summer and didn't want to waste it. It's not easy...

I'm really into The Wild Beer Co.

 

I'm gonna order a big mixed case from them next week (for Christmas). They're excellent!! Yum yum.

put in my xmas order with Beers of Europe and spied these pretty nifty handmade chalices (obviously I nabbed one)

that's pretty awesome!  are they sanctioned by the monastery, or made by a 3rd party?

Home and Bargains often have one off beers for 99p or less. Bought a fair few of these recently in Shrewsbury..

 

Oakham beers buy on sight. The other one is a collaboration between Brewdog and Yeastie Boys (Beer makers love a pun) - really hoppy black porter with a head that would make Divine Brown proud.

150% Beer Porn, dayum some of these look lush, you can almost smell them thru the screen.

 

Will treat myself to 1 from the old man's beer collection on Christmas Day cos abstinence only goes so far when Pops aint around himself any more to finish them off.

 

Beer based stews n sauces are delicious when cooked out properly, slow cooker is gonna get a workout in the cold of January so you get the full range of flavour profiles without the actual booze hits. Works with all cuts of beef, lamb & acres of veg, chin-chin

my tapatalk photos keep freezing and won't send (I think the pic resolution is too high and/or I need to upgrade the account)otherwise I'd be a bit more active in this corner of watmm

 

I ordered a mixed case of The Wild Beer Co, who's beer I'm becoming fascinated with. Had the Tepache https://wildbeer.myshopify.com/collections/limited-editions/products/tepache who's description I wasn't so sure on, but wow what an absolute stunning beer! Then had Rooting Around Autumn https://wildbeer.myshopify.com/products/rooting-around-autumn which was absolutely awful, which is part of the fun I guess (lucky the Tepache was 660ml and Rooting was 330ml ; )

some friends of ours got us a cookbook dedicated to cooking with Belgian beer.  over 100 recipes from appetizers to dessert, even one using Westvleteren 12 (who would ever cook with this instead of drinking it?!).

 

we had them over and tried out two dishes from the cookbook, a pork with Westmalle dubbel, and pears with Kriek.  loved it.
