Excellent. Payday on Friday, I'll get some in for Monkey. Lay it down in my new wine cellar (OK, it's more a void space under the floor in the back room, but it's mine and it's empty, so I'm storing booze in it).

This is as Captain Moseley would have wanted it, pasta be upon him.

Yesterday Ashley bought me a bottle of Kirin 0.00% ABV beer from Japan. It was tasty. Much, much better than O'Doul's, the only other nonalcoholic beer I've had.

Innis and Gunn making strides in US market

A 178 per cent leap in sales in the US helped the company to turn over a total of £7.5 million in 2011. Exports now account for 77 per cent of turnover.


Now if they would only bottled their beer in brown bottles and not clear ones. :furious:

Oh I do like Innis and Gunn beer. I'm especially fond of their rum cask beer (beer that is then matured in used rum casks) - a very rich and complex flavour.

It does not appear that MotP is available stateside. Unfortunate, because a stout made with wheat, coriander, and orange zest sounds delicious.

I have to say I like this stuff. It facilitates spirit drinking without the cost (and getting hammered, given it's about 13%) of whisky and also removes the constant needing-a-slash of beer. Plus it tastes nice :idiot:

That stout looks good and it reminds me of my idiotic 'Penguin Graffiti' campaign when I was in school.

Bluepoint pumpkin ale. Not as good as Southern Tier Pumking.

I enjoyed a pint of Ringwood's Boondoggle Blonde Ale the other day.

Good reason to work towards a Nobel Prize: Free Beer!

After [Niels Bohr] won the Nobel Prize in 1922, the Carlsberg brewery gave him a gift – a house located next to the brewery. And the best perk of the house? It had a direct pipeline to the brewery so that Bohr had free beer on tap whenever he wanted.
