    I am sad to say that I gave up beer this year, finally and irrevocably. Unfortunately my genetic predisposition to gout caught up with me, and gout is painful enough that it's worth making some relatively less painful adjustments to avoid flare-ups. The good news is that it appears to be working and since I gave up drinking I have not had another flare-up. But I'm still sad.

    A most excellent dark beer - triple Boch at 10% from a local brewery, direct from their bar shop.

    Very sweet, but not cloying. I'd reckon it would be good with a mince pie or two...

    Train beer. Rode to work today, but couldn’t face riding home. Check out the seatbelt my bike gets.

    The beer is outta Bristol from LHG. It’s well worth checking out their brews.

    Really tasty with a bitter aftertaste, my tastes are definitely changing...

    I had an LHG beer last night but I was a little too drunk to appreciate it. I'll revisit it when the Taproom is less busy. Meanwhile, I'm having another Orange Juice Blues out of Crafty Devil because I like it, even though it tastes rather like a hopped orange juice.

    In other news, I had my first ever gruit last night. Aleffissionados will no doubt know that a gruit is a beer brewed without hops but I only learned that last night. Alex of Little Faith explained that to be as he readied the tap for its launch. Lots of foraged herbs and berries plus sage with wild yeast but altogether a bit too sweet for my taste. If I have to drink sweet alcohol, hopped mead seems to suit me better. That said, I've only ever had one hopped mead before...

    I've just been converted to coffee-in-beer-other-than-stout, a category which previously merited the same level of scepticism as Black IPA. Gipsy Hill Percolator. A pint of boozy cold-brew with a clean finish. Hipstertastic! No photo of the beer itself as it looks horrific.

    A surfeit of laziness means no Sunday to up the Bermondsey Beer Mile. But a 2 minute walk rewarded me with a Brew York Kylie Gose Lassi, which is a very pleasant dry strawberry sour.

    That Left Handed Giant I couldn't remember the other day was in fact a Midnight Special, which is a cardamom, coffee and coconut milk stout. It tastes more like an oatmeal stout. Very good though.

    Last beer in Helsinki yesterday evening... At the Teerenpeli micro brewery bar. They have a small operation above where you can watch them make small batches... Probably around a 2 barrel plant (there main brewery is elsewhere).

    Mokka Matti on the right, 7% stout made with coffee beans. Reasonable but not earth shaking. On the left, Talvi Olut which is a plum Porter. Good but not as good as Titanic! Served too cold as well, considering how perishing it was outside...

    Hipstertastic...Chapeau! to you Sir:notworthy::bravo:. And speaking of Hipsters, there was a member of staff at Salt Horse in Auld Reekie last Saturday wearing a pastel pink sweater with green trousers (he also had an action movie Science Guy beard).:laugh::reading:
