Beer Reviews Tuborg

I’ve been working away from home a lot lately – painfully separated from the delicious Mrs P. On the plus side (as if I need another), I’ve been getting more than my fair share…of beer, that is. Not that I would overindulge, no sir. There’s nothing worse than scooping up all night then working a

Handwritten recipes can be difficult to decipher, especially when the

Beer Reviews Fullers Esb

I’ve spent quite a bit of time in London recently and so have become quite au fait with the local brews. (No, au fait is NOT Scots for all full…). Basically, this means a choice between Youngs and/or Fullers, and not wishing to show any favouritism, I sampled as many of both as I could

Modelo Especial Beer Review

A couple of weeks ago, I took advantage of a special offer from Ryanair and flew from Prestwick to Girona in Spain for a couple of days. Mrs P stayed at home to get on with her ironing and such like, leaving myself and wee proxam jr. to trawl the various drinking establishments of that
