    Notable beers from the past week include...

    Five Points JUPA (c)
    LBC Big Milk Stout (c)
    Oakham Inferno (b)
    Thornbridge Jaipur (b)
    Northern Rock Heathen (c)
    Magic Rock Cannonball (c)
    Magic Rock Dark Arts (c)
    BrewDog vs Cloudwater New England IPA (c)

    The last two really good but Dark Arts takes it by a short nose.

    Struggling on with:

    Moon Gazer Blonde IPA*
    Wild Beer Nebula
    Fullers/Marble Matariki New Zealand Saison
    Beer Ritz/Ridgeside Bruttin' on the Ritz
    Northern Monk New World IPA*
    Marble Barley Wine*
    Oakham Scarlet Macaw
    Poppylands Saison du Pomegranate*
    Blue Monkey Big Blue*
    Marble Berimbolo*
    Poppylands Vossaol
    Blue Monkey Ape Ale*

    Another week with some mine sweeping old stock including sours and saisons which are usually a bit tart for my taste but lodged in the fridge and drunk at the end of a warm day they whistled down.

    BOTW Marble Barley Wine 2018. Drunk after dinner which worked very well but at 12.4% led to a swift retirement to bed.

    Vocation - Smash and Grab. I might repeat myself next week as only around 10 of 48 cans were finished off last weekend (8.5% )

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    In lockdown.

    Howling Hops -- House IPA (c)
    Wild Beer -- Sleeping Lemon (bottle conditioned)
    Vocation -- Pure Pilsner (c)
    Vocation -- Life & Death (c)

    I'm getting boring but not for the first time BOTW goes to Vocation Life & Death


    Next week , a large stock of the HH House IPA will dominate drinking but there is still a few back of the cupboard options to give minor variety.The usual close inspection of the supermarket shelves might augment the options.

    For me it's got to be ELB Imperial Stout at 9.5% and in a very thick 750ml bottle. It's not worth the £11.00 price tag but is a great beer and easily fits into an old JDW beer festival glass from the 1990s. I've still got 5 left!

    St Austell - Tribute. (b)
    Nomadic - Yor Shout. (b-in-b)

    Yor Shout is an American Red ale made with Simcoe and Mosaic hops. Went down very nicely.
