Went apple picking with the father-in-law yesterday. He’s gonna be making some cider. Pure apples, none of this other types of fruits shit that most Americans do.

Loooking forward to it.


#3742

Cider or HARD cider? Always find it so confusing when Americans talk about cider and they just mean juice.


#3743

I didn’t get to go to the Evening Star, but another friend has a gig in Brighton later in the month, so i’m hoping to give it a visit then.


#3744

I’ve not been for a long while. I used to be in Brighton once a month to DJ gigs and stuff. But not since Matt & Karen moved to Brighton. I assume everything is much the same there under the new manager?


#3745

Yep


#3746

Hard cider. I was so disapointed the first time I went to an apple orchard over here and tried a sample of free “cider.”


#3747

I’m very childish


#3748

My precious antique cans!

NORTHERN MONK guy with the goods this afternoon:

Northern Monk X Verdant Patrons Project 9.01 Captain North IPA 6% : YESSSSSS
Northern Monk Mango Lassi Heathern 7.2% : Lovely, sweet enough, smooth but not sludgy or thick or cloying…

Lads killing it

Boxcar Citra IPA & London Saison are lovely. Sold in those medicine bottles (like the old school red stripes), which obvs makes taste better


#3753

If you’re after a juicy NE DIPA and can’t see any Cloudwater / Verdant / Deya etc, I’m drinking a Gispy Hill Karoshi and can highly recommend. Very impressed.


#3754

Gypsy Hill beers are easily the most hit and miss brewery, love Hepcat, hate most of their other beers… will have a look for this


#3755

Karoshi is a little on the thin side for me (cf. other juicy DIPAs) imo. Hides its a 8%(?) v. well though

Incidentally, got devlivered a boat load of Verdant Pulp today so v. happy


#3756

Yeah, to be fair as I finished it I realised I wasn’t as in love as at first sip, but still, pretty good, and fairly priced compared to the big boys.

I generally like GH, but as a lot of it is cask and served in south London pubs that aren’t super on top of their cask game, I’ve often had pretty poor pints.


#3757

Canadian Pumpkin ale, Berlin Session IPA and Bavarian dry hop lager. Here’s hoping they cut through my cold. Was tempted by a DIPA but chickened out - haven’t yet found something that strong that I genuinely enjoyed.


#3758

I’m on a pub crawl tonight around Holborn, Lincoln Inn Fields and Clerkenwell/Finsbury. I’m sitting here, an hour and a half or so before I finish work, wondering what will be out there on cask.


#3759

I see Cloudwater and Burning Sky have a collab beer coming out for Cloudwater’s 3rd birthday bash. Sound intriguing.


#3760

How boring
