There is an email box on the queue that will send you an email a minute or so before your turn so you dont have sit watching it. Queue also seems like 0 minutes right now too :)

I've enjoyed a few beer deals over the last month or so.

    • 4 free cans of lager from BrewDog (same thing BTB mentioned a while ago) - very nice, noticeably better than most other lagers, although still ultimately just lager and therefore limited.

    • 8 free cans from Beer52 - really good, some lovely beers, highly recommended.

    • cheap crate of mixed beers and wine from Brew Republic - disgusting stuff, some of it totally undrinkable, literally some of the worst beer I have ever had (and I've been in the away end at several Championship football grounds).

But right now I'd happily pay £5+ for a surprisingly warm coors light at an away game :cry:

Had some more stuff from tiny rebel turn up. I love their stouts, can't wait to go to the brewery again when it's open (it's just down the road) and drink some proper pints of the stuff rather than little cans.

Have you tried the The Clwb Tropica? It's delicious. (might not be for you if you're a stout drinker)

I got into that Brewdog box thing straight away without a queue yesterday, will get the free box and then cancel. I got some of that free Lost Lager last month and it was alright.

I tried some of that establishment IPA from Aldi the other day and it was quite nice.

Lovely :datass:

I'm going to the brewery next week. It'll be like the Simpsons when Barney was allowed to see in the beer delivery

What beers did you get? Might give it a go now the queue system has gone.

I've been drinking some great rum lately -

El Dorado 12 and 15 (the 15 is probably the nicest drink I've had in my life. I smoke some weed beforehand and the flavours are insane).

Flor de Cana 12 - this is much more mild but still feel like I'm being transported to the Caribbean. Planning to treat myself later in the year with the 25 which is meant to be one of the world's best.

I love that even the best rum on the planet is so much more affordable than the equivalent whiskey.

Do you drink it straight? I've always thought of rum as a spirit you just mix with Coke or ginger beer.

The two El Dorado's I drink straight as I don't want to dilute the flavour. The Cana I drop a couple of ice cubes in, but also goes with coke.

I'd really recommend giving them a shot if you like rum with coke or ginger beer, they're generally only about 10/15 quid more than the real run of the mill stuff (which I also enjoy). Canny knock a Cpt Morgan's with coke to be fair.

I think we've had that. Their flavoured tonics are beautiful with a quality gin too.

Decent. The reviews online of the El Dorado 15! Sounds too good to be true. My birthday next month so I might ask for a bottle.
