    Local ale in Puerto Rico Gran Canaria seems to be Amstel, but it's quite dark. Some have Tropical (local good brew) and thats nicer, but the Amstel is either flat or gassy.

    The descent bars take more pride over the beer, reflected in price. The Swedish bar has just about anything you want, over 200 specialist ales.

    A beer that's hung around since the London Craft Beer Festival. Interboro X (something like) Alvarado St. Blueberry and pineapple sour. Tis rather juicy.

    Hopcraft brewery - citrus IPA 4.5%. Very hoppy if you like that sort of thing. Remind me of Oakham ales.

    Lightly sour with a generous dose of pineapple. It's a like or loathe beer. I like it but half the bar staff really don't.

    Lacons Affinity.

    On approaching the bar**, I must admit I had never heard of this brewer from Great Yarmouth (site of a few very happy childhood holidays) which claims to have been around since 1760.

    I think it's one of those cases of an old brewery brand recently revived.

    But it is a very nice beer.

    Super fresh cans from the US - both canned less than a month ago.

    On the left, Summer from Tree House (MA). A superbly made NEIPA - not many can make them this good.

    On the right, Lung Bag from Tired Hands (NYC). A bit meh. Too much adjunct for me. I wouldn't have bought it had I realized how much crap they put in it - fruit juice, fruit zest and honey.

    Er, people use contactless because it's much more convenient than cash, not because they want to look "cool".

    Anyway, it seems a far better approach than handing your cash over Tim Martin (massive twat for the avoidance of doubt).

    If I'm stood at a bar I don't see what's so much bother to use my hand to hand over some cash before using self same hand to carry beer away.
    As for the tim martin thing, cripes, what's he got to do with the matter?
    A bizzare outburst.
    I think you need a lie down.
    Or a drink.
