    My flatmate bought a box of Premium Cleanskin Beer:



    A product of Korea and 4.5% and it was $27 for a box. It's not too bad, certainly one of those you get what you pay for beers.

    Visited Yakima Craft Brewing microbrewery and Tap Room yesterday (http://www.yakimacraftbrewing.com/home.html). It's a small 3.5 BBL process, but are making plans to expand to 20. But man do they make real good beer of different kinds (labels in parenth.), from pale ale (Pale Ale) to belgian style (Good Monkey, and Bad Monkey) and stout (Twin Stag). The belgian labels got the 'Monkey' name because they have a slight banana flavor from the yeast... banana is not an ingredient. It goes down smooth, but at 8.2% alcohol will sneak up on you (the 'Bad' part and 'Good' part of the label) ???. Bad Monkey is a season product around Christmas that has some added spices that adds a very nice flavor.

    MY FAVORITE though was the IPA, which is an A+ rated brew. The sample I had in the tap room had an IBU content of about 102 (highter than the website's 78 IBU content). But it was not bitter!!! It was a real smooth blend of malt and grains (they use lots of grain in the Mash Tun). It had a very pleasant smooth hop flavor.


    You want a REAL hoppy flavor? Then VERN is for you... with an astounding 115 IBU content in the Tap Room. That was too much for me, but not enough to turn my nose up against, and is still better than any Bud, Miller, or other common beer in supermarkets.

    On this Friday afternoon while I was in the Tap Room, a lot of folks came in to have their growlers refilled with their favorite right from the tap. Sweet.

    If you can get their beer, do it. But if you call them asking how to get it they will probably say "Come to Yakima". All of their bottled product are 22 ounces... perfect for me.

    As a general rule whenever I travel (or in this case move) to another country, I think it only fitting to experience the new culture via hops and barley...or wheat. I've been disappointed a few times for sure by the local offering; Spain for example has a deplorable local beer industry as do Egypt and Morocco--the latter two have an excuse on account of the dominant culture and religion of course.
    However, I have to express my gut-wrenching dismay at beer in New Zealand which lacks balls and flavour, yet is ridiculously expensive.
    Only this week I was pleasantly surprised to find this guy http://kererubrewing.co.nz/ who lives down the hill from me, and whose door I may come a knockin' on the way home from the shop this week. Turns out he's an ex-pat but not a Tex-pat.

    I hear this. I hope you have never had the misfortune of imbibing monteith's "stout". Genuinely Rank. Stout is supposed to be smooth, with a silky head. This Stuff fizzes more than a can of coke, has just a slightly frothy, greasy stain at the top of the glass as an excuse for head and I am pretty sure it is often used as paint stripper, it's taste is so acrid.

    There are a couple of micro breweries in Welly that I am sure you have found out, that do some nice stuff if you like pilsner/ lager, but you're right it's a bit pricey, like most booze in NZ, and as for the Ales..don't get me started.

    Very much a real ale drinker.  My local (and favourite) brewery is a small company called Andwells.  Their beers are all delicious apart from Ruddy Darter, and their Christmas limited edition Porter was awesome!

    Saturday I went to my favourite drankenhandel over at Winksele, which is called ABS Drinks. They know me there now, so I even get half-smiles from the lady "who run tings that go on".

    Some days you get lucky there. Saturday was pretty lucky: a nice assortment of De Struise Pannepot variations (including the Calvados-barrelled vintage Grand Reserva) and just a few Black Alberts remaining. The rest of my crate I filled with Sint Bernardus 12 and Caracole's heady, complex Nostradamus.

    After a busy day around the house on Sunday, we had a nice, light St Feuillien Blonde. At only 7.5% ABV, it's an ideal beer for those making the transition over from thin lagers and crappy-tappers like Kronenbourg. Full of agreeably fresh, strawy tones and tastes perfectly poised on the right side of dry.

    My current tipples of choice in my local;


    and the guest ale they have at the moment which is dangerously drinkable.  Light and refreshing, in summer this will be the dog's nutsack of a beverage.

    Went out a couple of weeks ago for a hard 50 miler round the Ride of the Falling Leaves route near Sheffield before attending the Rotherham Magna Beer Festival the day after. Had to build up a thirst  :tu

    Plenty of "research" completed and was particularly impressed with the two Steel City Brewing offerings Dark Funeral and Xiberia.
