Freigeist Abraxas Smoked Lichtenhainer Weisse 6% Some German Austrian White beer brewed in accordance with the Ye Olde purity laws that dictate a lot about ingredients but not about taste. Thought it tasted like sour watery Savlon. Still drank it though. Bit more than that going on, to be fair. Apricot sweetness, soft bitterness. Bit […]

The End of the Beer Blog
February 16, 2014

I’m never drinking again. No more beer, wine, whisky, meths. End of the reek, the wobble, the slurring and blurring. I’m giving up on wrestles on pub floors, courting arrest and diamond chat.

The mashers at Orkney Brewing Co have been talked down from a further bloodshed by receiving a nominated for a drink prize in the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards. That’s good news for Scotland’s A&E departments, obviously; but I do wonder just how much the decision was affected by the Orkney brewers’ propensity for violence […]

Tough Mudder: a beer well earned
May 11, 2013

At the start of this year I signed up to an event called Tough Mudder. Kind of like a cross-country half-marathon with loads of nasty obstacles thrown in to make it even more fun. Part of my training involves running and that; and part of it involves drinking tasty craft beers. So I can pick […]
