I'm happy to kick-start this blog again with news I'll be doing a tutored tasting in Cardiff in a week's time.

Alongside Sue, the Brewster from Waen Brewery, I'll be found in Cardiff's Fire Island on Sunday night, talking about the range of beers from Waen and items from their BBQ menu that would mix nicely. It's going to be fun, with a couple of speciality beers such as the Chilli Plum Porter and Sick & Twisted, an Imperial Stout with a little coconut and cocoa in it.

So the 4 beers we'll be going through are:
Sick & Twisted is limited edition & I couldn't get hold of any in bottle!

Janner's Pride 4.0% - a malty best bitter
Landmark - 5.5% - a strong hoppy IPA
Chilli Plum Porter - 6.1% - a dark smoother Porter with (surprisingly) chilli and plum flavours
Sick & Twisted - 6.0% - A special collaborative brew with Downlands Brewery, Imperial stout with coconut and cocoa.

There will be two versions of the Porter available, one with extra chilli, and the newly improved Landmark which I'm looking forward to trying for the first time on the night (having previously drank the 'old' version!)

I'll be trying a couple of the beers in bottled form tonight - probably with a couple of tweets to go with from my @welsheddie86 twitter. So come and join us. Drink beer. Chat. Tell me why I'm wrong. Tell me why I'm right! Ask Sue complicated questions about the brewing process. It's why we're there.
