    Spending a few days in a remote and snowy village half-way up an Austrian mountain. However, by an amazing coincidence, this place has an excellent little brew pub...

    So, as a change from the local Puntigamer (whose slogan "Das 'bierige' Bier" translates as "the 'beery' beer"), I'm going for the first rate Weihnachtsfestbier (Christmas festival beer) from the Brauhaus Girrer.

    No Alcohol at all this week only Tetleys Tea & Ginger Beer till Tuesday as Ive been working everyday. Still it kept me out the Pubs during the Loony week over Christmas & New Year.

    No pub visits this week but plenty of bottles of beer at home if you are aloud to nominate a bottled beer it would have to be Brew Dog Punk IPA.

    BOTW has to be one of today's beers and should go to Red Rock Christmas Cheer 5.2% from the Wellington in Birmingham.

    Well a dodgy start to the week (Bulls Head , Wrockwardine Wood , 10 landlords/managers in the last 18 months tells is own story)
    Black Country - Fireside
    Black Country - Dudley Pale Ale
    Quantock- Plastered Pheasant
    Dark Star - Best

    Then a decent end
    Three Tuns - Stirling
    Idle Brewery - Idle Landlord
    Derby - Triple Hop
    Pictish - Winter Solstice
    Cottage - Herrcules
    Titanic - Choclate Vanilla Stout

    BOTW an easy win for Titanic Chocolate Vanilla Stout , tastes just like it sounds , gorgeous

    Lots of beer this week in the pub and out of bottles but there was one head and shoulders above the others, Acorn Blonde. More a classic Pale Ale just light in colour so he's labelled it Blonde , it has a good hopping rate, a bit of a Burton Snatch and is full bodied.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    I already know mine but I suppose I have to let today elapse before committing myself.

    Three festive contenders for me this week: Cairngorm Santa's Sledgehammer, a deceptively drinkable winter brew at 5.6%, Holden's Christmas Blaster 4.8%, pale but dry and just improves with each pint but BOTW goes to Elland Santa's Pants, 4.6% and pale again but very well balanced, it simply bounces out of the glass.

    Fairly quiet on the beer front, this week. Manage to try a few on Thursday though:

    Ossett 'Excelsior'.
    Springhead 'Bramley Apple'.
    Fullers 'Bengal Lancer'.
    Five Towns 'Staggering Genius'
    Revolutions Brewing Co ' The Original 45 Porter'.

    The Porter was fabulous stuff and will win easily, unless I can sneak a few in later today.
