Go Green

Had Duvel Green for the first time last night, whilst my team of fellow hacks were wooping the arse of the 'beer expert' panel - ha ha ha!

It was held at the All Bar One on New Oxford Street, which is somewhere that doesn't normally register on my radar, but the range of beers is excellent and their dedication to glorious glassware is admirable.

Anyway, back to the Duvel Green, it's a 6.8%ABV beer which has a bag-load of flavours similar but not as complex the original. It still packs a punch though, as my head will attest to this morning!

Just a quick note : The Cains Brewery situation is resolved and it is back in the hands of the Dusanj brothers. The upshot of this is that our fave beers (Raisin Beer included I assume) are safe for the time being.

I really need to start putting bets on this kind of thing, when I first heard about it I turned to my mate and said 10:1 it will be back in their hands before the end of the year! Dammit!

Ha ha, everyone's a winner, apart from the taxman I suppose. Along with Copper Dragon I'd say Cains is my favourite brewery (Although possibly it's when you've got 'favourite breweries' that you know you've got a problem).

I'm just back from a holiday to Portugal where the Super Bock Green was very refreshing indeed! :-)

Not related to this post, but I saw this article in the LA times you might be interested on the rise of women in homebrewing.
