The Beer Thread

Duvel glass lol!


#662

Picked up two of em about 15 years ago. The only beer glasses that my missus hasn’t managed to break. :laughing:

I want to see photos of the lamb in the cooking thread!

Are you near Zushi? Yorocco Beer is killing it there. I’ve never been but they’ve got a place called Beach Muffin. I’ve had Yorocco stuff over here, fantastic farmhouse ales.


#665

Sure am, Jez-san.

Zushi-shi is 100m from my joint. One of my main stomping grounds. I’m smack bang on the border of Zushi/Kamakura/Yokohama.

Haven’t tried Yorocco Beer yet, but will definitely hunt it down now. Cheers.


#666

Yeah, it should be around. It’s just a small operation, but really nice stuff. One day I’ll definitely get out that way!


#667

The washitsu awaits…:wink:


#668

Report on this one? Interesting concept. Imagining fruity hop botanicals and creamy lactose?


#669

Ripping beer. Good dose of bitterness at the end of the palate making for a nice refreshing beer although not the norm for the style. Ripping head on it, thick and smooth and soft mouthfeel.

Had a few of the Exit range and been suitably happy with the quality.

Still, if I want mass produced beer I can’t go past anything Czech, lager or Pils.


#671

At a charity lunch, haven’t had the same beer twice, as we work our way through the taps.

The Balter XPA is an absolute cracker.


#672

It’s their best beer by some margin. The rest of the range are pretty over rated.


#673

Seen it mentioned in here, so gave it a try, it’s better than the Two Birds, Hawker & Czech pils I’ve had.

Might have to break my rule and go back for a second.


#674

I like Balter XPA, but agree the rest is a little ho hum.

There’s another brewery near them called ‘Black Hops’. Doing great stuff.


#675

Much better than Hawkers, Two Birds etc.


#676

Yeah Black Hops do some great stuff… not so much on the socials… although there are those that would say any publicity is good publicity.


#677

Vietnam war aside, this is a great story about having a beer with mates


#678

I have been in Vietnam for over two weeks and drunk a lot of beer.

Larue is a very good drop and i am paying about $1 for a 500 ml bottle at the local bar, it is $3 at the hotel, but I have not checked what it costs to be a " slab" at the mini mart, must be very cheap.

Today is 29 deg and sunny, and just right for more Larue !

Asian beer is perfect for their climate. Even Bintang isn’t too bad. And the price is right, opiate if the masses.

Why didn’t you buy 6 calendars? That way every day you can drink a 6 pack?

I’m tempted to go buy one now. Then i get to play catch up.
