Brewshack

Of Stove and glass, Of mind and matter...
Half a tonne up on Facebook…
YAY! I know it’s just popularity contest but it’s nice that the word of Brewshack is reaching a greater audience, much of the content mirrors stuff here but it’s great for those that aren’t on Tumblr…
If you’re on Facebook, let’s face it - who isn’t (?!) and you have a moment to stop by, say Hi or give us a thumbs up please do….

Football beers…

4 years ago, at the last World Cup  this picture would have looked somewhat different, my choice of beer would almost have certainly been pissy yellow fizz, a lot has happened since then…

In the absence of anything “really” tasty craft beer wise in the local shop Marstons Pedigree it is…

Brew day session beers…

Brew day session beers…

Sunday Tea…

Doughed in, just chillin, on to the hop schedule. Marynka Polish hops for the boil. 2 ounces of tea to steep at the end of the brew.

Ready to start another brew day, the order of the day is Tea Beers; first up Pomegranate Tea Pale Ale, followed by Earl Grey IPA…

Oh Canada…

So yesterday was Canada day… 
I know, I would have know otherwise unless someone told me! But I have a couple of Canadian mates, a good friend of mine is moving over there at the end of the year. Last time he was over there he sent me a picture of a bottle of this, sat in the snow on decking outside his girlfriends summer house, saying “Tom Green” looked like me when I had a beard! I joked and asked him to bring me a bottle back, lo and behold he did, so I vowed to save it for Canada day - which he said I wouldn’t manage (knowing my appetite for beer) but it’s been sat in my fridge for 4 months and last night it was drunk, damn good it was too! 

Happy Canada Day guys…

forcera:

Gordon Strong’s presentation on the 2014 BJCP Style Guidelines. It’s around 50 minutes long but it’s worth a watch. I posted a link to the slides that he used earlier but it’s nice to have him go over the changes.

Also if you haven’t checked out Chop and Brew you really should. Chip has some really good videos out there. Plus he brings you things like this!!!

Essential viewing…thanks forcera :)

As a former soccer play and referee I’m really enjoying The World Cup!
I found this and thought it was really interesting. It’s beers form all of the countries in The World Cup. Yeah they could have done better than Bud Light for the USA but oh well.

forcera ditto for England - Carling is absolute swill, worse than Bud sh*te! No wonder they had such a limp, characterless performance, I hold this poster and that beer responsible. 

In truth though I was supporting South Korea with my wife, proud they they scored more goals and showed more fight than England, despite being ranked 55 in the world to England’s 8th place…
