Craft Beer

Aye I saw that, should be cracking. Quite exciting times for Vaux at the moment, I really like what they're doing with these collabs and the introduction of cask.

I think I'm going to our local bottle shops birthday party tonight so I might pester them to start stocking Vaux in the future. Maybe this Howling Hops collab will help them with reputation down here as they're (understandably) totally unknown.
Just tell them I like Black Wave. That should swing it for you.

The Verdant stuff I bought when they had 20% off was class mind. Love their stuff. One can left of a DIPA which I have kept till last.
 
Lidl beer festival next week I think. There’s a Vanilla Stout in there, but also an Impy, 10% at £2.50. It’s got to be shit surely?! 3.74 on Untappd which isn’t bad like.
 
Down Wakefield tomorrow if anybody’s got any pub or bottle shop suggestions

Currently sitting outside of Fausto having a Black Wave. It’s a tremendous night like. Really mild. Bairns are up late, pizza on way.

Demoersleutel Aztec Hot Chocolate. It’s canny, but proves price doesn’t always mean best quality

The cost of energy can fuck right off, the price of the beer we're buying in has noticeably increased already and our overheads are flying up. I think it's time to start hawking Carling!
 
First visit to Vaux pre match, great set up. Could easily spend a good session in there, unfortunately only for one this time. Went for the Monk Street brown ale, spot on.

You'll have seen me at the bar.

Had the new Freddys Drop and Snoochie Boochies, both very good. Former has shitloads of flavour for a low ABV beer, juicy but not overly sweet. Quite different to the VPA as that was smoother, being on cask, and much more bitter.

Snoochie Boochies was very good as well. Reminded me a bit of Looper, not sure how valid that comparison is in reality but shows how much I enjoyed it.

Bit crack on with Les again, lovely lad and loves talking beer.

Definitely will be back in. Had the lad with me so only a quick one, and meeting up outside the ground. Could have worked my way through the board in fairness!
