czechvar - Newest pictures

~~ My beer blog ~~

Here is a record of the beers I drink and the places I find them. The picture above shows the label from a delicious Czechvar drunk in New York city in March. Rather like a real Budweiser Budvar, not the American brewed Budweiser rubbish.
OK so I just found the size limit ..... to continue my list from below......Greene King LBW (in the UK); Lapin Kulta from Finland (in the UK); Birra Moretti from Italy (in the UK); Anchor Steam, Corona Extra (Mexico), Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Gordon Biersch and Dos Equis XX (from Mexico) all in the USA; Carlsberg (in Spain). That list brings me up to 17th May! More in the next installment. Cheers!

I've not been in here lately so apologies to anyone who is a regular visitor. (Don't laugh, there may be one!) Anyway, despite the fact that there have been few entries, I have still been drinking the fabulous stuff both at home in the UK and on my trips abroad. Indeed the picture of Czechvar above is from a trip to New York in March. Looking through the beer photos I can see I have also drunk: Old Speckled Hen (in the UK); OB - Korean Oriental Brewery, Hoegarden, Red Stripe, Coors Light (in the USA); Kingfisher Indian beer (in the UK); Nastro Azzuro and Peroni (in Italy); Greene King LBW (in ...

It was school half term last week, so I took a few days off work and on Thursday took a trip to London with the family. We had an excellent day, went to a West End show - Blood Brothers - and then had a meal at a great restaurant called Livebait in Covent Garden. They serve proper Czech brewed Budweiser Budvar - not the crappy US Budweiser which I detest. The picture above (at 21/Feb/07) shows the reverse label and tells how they use the "finest Saaz Aroma Hops". Mmmmm delicious.

My son went on a trip to Belgium last week and took in a visit to a Stella Artois factory. Educational and entertaining. He informs me that the drinking age in Belgium is 16 years - so there was much fun to be had by a group of 16 year old students!! He brought me back some beer and a Stella Artois branded bottle opener - very handy - Thanks Ben.

Managed to make that trip to Lancaster (Northern England) and boy did I get lucky! Went to a great pub for lunch called The Sun Hotel and Bar which dates back about 300 years. They have a fantastic selection of beers from round the world - and good food too. As you know by now, dear reader, I always like to sample the local brews so I had a pint of "Lancaster Blonde" from the aptly named Lancaster Brewery. It was delicious and it was only a shame that I had to work and could not sample more!

Last day at work before the Christmas break. I was supposed to go north to Lancaster, but the fog was so bad that all flights were cancelled. Popped over to the Old Spring for a fine pint of Green King IPA - mmm - smashing!

Back in the UK now. 15th Dec. Popped down to the local pub - The Queen's Head in Newton - for a lovely pint of Adnam's Bitter at lunchtime. There is no cellar at the pub because it is so old, so the beer is just perfect at cool room temp. Goes down a treat with their soup and wholemeal bread. In the evening I popped in on some friends and had a couple of bottles of Australian VB (Victoria Bitter). No pics of that, sorry.

On Weds 8th Dec found a lovely restaurant in Redwood City called Destinations (at 2650 Broadway Street) where they have good standard fare plus "Themes from round the world". At the moment it is Hawaii and to complement the Macadamia Humus and Mahi-Mahi they have Hawaiian beers. I tried the Waimea Bay pale ale and the Luau lager from the Waimea Brewing Company in Kaua'i, Hawaii. Both we flavorsome, but I preferred the Waimea Bay. The labels were sufficiently colorful and interesting that I have decided to open a new mobile shop on the now world famous BeerWAP site with rare label wallpapers.

Got in late to San Hose last night (6/Dec/06) after a 7 hour flight from New York. Had a Heineken on the Jet Blue plane and when we landed we found a great little bar in Belmont, CA called the Lariat Tavern. Drank a few Sam Adams Boston Lagers which went down very well after the flight. Chatted to the landlady (proprietor to the non Brits) who was very bright and pleasant.

Back in New York city again, but working too hard to have too many beers. Managed to pop out for a couple. Had a Michelob Ultra - tasted of more or less nothing at all. The bottle did not have any markings to tell me how much alcohol was in it. Strange really, and I wondered if it was alcohol free! I have since found out it is 4.2% ABV.

A bit off topic, but I met with a group of friends last night and drank some fine single malt whisky called Springbank. We own a hogshead.

17th October went to Swedish Beers in London at the Nordic Bar. FREE BEER all night thanks to those kind folks at Bango (must have more money than sense). Tried Crocodile, Zeunerts Werde, and Nils Oscar God Lager. All very good. (Don't forget you can buy thee wallpapers in the Shop to help support Beer WAP).
