Beer up!

I’ve not blogged on Friday and today is going to be a weird one too.

My internet at home is down for some reason and I’ve been away for the weekend. Writing reviews on my phone is not something I look forward to so, I’m not sure how this is going to pan out until it’s fixed.

Anyway, last week I finally got around to sampling all open bottle-shares. Most of the participants have received emails about it, and if not, it’ll happen soon.

Paid parcels will be shipped this week, I hope.

During the weekend we went to the Ardennes (again) to celebrate my mum’s sixtieth. Obviously beers were had, although there aren’t any proper liquor shops around that area, so I was limited to supermarket stock. Luckily, Belgian supermarkets have a nice selection of brews.

They had quite a few nice sour beers (a new fancy of mine) available, so I stocked up on that as well. I’ll have stuff to drink and I also need to start selecting stuff for longer maturation in our crawlspace.

I’ve been drinking a lot of beers from Loch Ness Brewery. I got a couple of the whisky cask aged beers from Jon Beach (of Fiddler’s fame) for reviewing, so a post on those will be showing up shortly.

Also, tonight I’m hosting a whisky tasting at my father-in-law’s place for his golf buddies.

On Friday I’m going to De Whiskykoning for the annual peat tasting. I’ve completely booked that last year and it’s me and a load of friends going.

Apart from that, I’m continuously looking forward to Scotland next week. Weather is going to be shite, but I’m not going to be held back by that!

Went here. Didn’t find any. Deception.
