Happy Birthday to your little one Julie! Its amazing how fast they grow. My daughter just turned 7 a couple weeks ago. I'm amazed at how smart this little girl is. She's more into electronics than I am it seems! She can figure things out real quick. Roller blades, now thats something that I'm sure she will figure out in no time flat!

That's it, cleared up after John's escape bash last night.
One koala was complaining about a terrible draught - I was concerned a barrel had gone off until I notice John's new entrance way. It is hidden behind the bar, and someone had forgotten to put the crates back after John's spectacular entrance last night....

Now for Julie's bash tonight.
Loads of Belgian beers in stock, only Belgian chocolate on sale, what else is needed?? Oh yes, all the waitresses are dressed in finest Flemish lace thingies...
Sorry Mike, no German beer will be served tonight, nor will there be any English or American beers either. (As I was politely informed by the koala that served me a few minutes ago when I order a Greene King IPA)

You'll have to have a word with John and Chris, I'm sure they know of some pubs that have some proper ale on tap :)

Different beers for different people, some you like, some you don't. I tell you though, I've had a couple of dodgy pints that almost put me off beer for life. Almost though :) But to real ales, yeah they really can be quite different from barrel to barrel and if your not used to them can be quite, erm, different :)

Well, as long as there's something for you to drink while out with friends I guess that's all that matters. Oh, and the pub lunch as well :)

That was yummy.

Stella Artois is always good for me. Could do with a pint right now. Innkeeper, if you please......

Most continentals don't like them Mike, you're not alone, nor do the Aussies either. British beers tend to have a reputation for being flat and warm, continental lager/beers are cold and frothy. Landlord either grabs you or it doesn't, it happens to suit me. What I would like to do is take you to a real ale festival one day where there can be up to 50-100 different real ales in all strengths, tastes and colours. You buy them in 1/2 pints at a time. I'd be very surprised if you didn't find one there you liked. And there are lagers too!

At the moment when home I am drinking Polish Warka, which they market as a lager, but I find it a cross between beer and lager, and I've been into that for 2 years now. A little bit strong at 5.7% so you don't want more than 3 x 1/2 litre cans at a time :-) But my corner shop sells a can for £1.25 which is equivalent to £1.43 a pint, well less than half the pub price for a pint of lager :-))




When out, London pride is my usual tipple, or maybe a Doombar, but the last Doom I had in London was a bit sour, could have been a dirty pipe.



But if it's Belgian night, I'll have one of these.




And oh yes, Mike does love his steaks!!!

Just been down to the off license where there's a sale on. Picked up this little lot for £7.

From left, two old favourites, a reliable staple, a wildcard, and one that i have to try because it's advertised by Rik Mayall.
