Was in Split, Croatia a couple of weeks back. Sampled a couple of local beers from microbreweries.

First was LAB Barba Pale Ale

A decent pale ale, although it was nicer bottled. The draught was a bit too fizzy.

The other was Zmajska Pivovara Pale Ale. A very tasty Pale Ale. Very drinkable.

Just had one these...

A chestnut ale with toasty notes. Pleasant, although the chestnut wasn't as pronounced as I would have hoped. A good smokiness though.

Sounds expensive.



O'Briens were running a 6 for 5 offer on craft beer so I've stocked up for the Christmas period. Might get a few bottles of Crabbies ginger beer as well but judging by the amount of places stocking it I might be one of the only people in Galway that ever buys the stuff.

Expensive ? Thats really good especially with free delivery. I ended up getting an extra 15% as I am a share holder so it worked out at 83p a bottle.

Recipe for Holiday Sloe Gin Fizz:

In an old fashioned tumbler, mix 1tsp sugar with 50ml sloe gin and the juice from ½ of a lemon until sugar is fully dissolved.
Top with soda water and garnish with a fresh cranberry and orange peel (or a twist of lemon).


Woman at work given little jam jars as this out as present/treat.

Dear god it smells good. At the bit I spilled on my hand and licked was amazing. (It's 10am. Shut up)

The Brexit effect actually means 83p is a good deal for toilet water by itself, the ratguts are just an added bonus.

I've suddenly got into rum, picking up a bottle of Kraken to have over Christmas with ginger beer; which has even more suddenly become by favourite drink. :wub:

Any other decent dark rums about aside from the likes of Captain Morgan?

Kraken and coke or ginger beer is a decent drink to end the night.

I bought some Aspall Cider to drink over the Christmas period. Not bad, 3 for £5. Usually £2 each.

I like aspell the shop round th corner from me has it on offer all the time so when I'm in the mood for cider it tend to go for it.

Whilst I normally avoid beer I have this evening enjoyed a couple of bottles of Desperados "Verde", which is the tequila-flavoured beer but with mint and lime, it's like drinking a mojito but in a beer :datass:
