    Have you thought of brewing yourself? Meant to ask you this a while back.
    A local guy set up a small micro brewery bar and it’s really popular, I know now isn’t a good time but I think with your level of interest you would make a good go at it.

    I absolutely have. I’d do it tomorrow, but I like the security of a job that pays the mortgage.

    The good news is, I’ve accelerated my mortgage and only have 6 years until it’s paid off (assuming I don’t get fired). So, I’ve still got a little time to plan for the Congo brewery, launching 2027 :-)

    I suppose you have to find what works best for you.

    In terms of regional scotch I like the Islay ones like Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Bowmore and add Jura in there as well. Talisker is nice too. Most of those are smokey and a bit medicinal tasting, if you like the ones with more fruity tones like Monkey Shoulder then Speyside is a good region to look at.
    I think it's why I'm sort of looking round the cheap stuff at the moment, if its not great I could just stick it in coke. There is some more expensive ones I really want to try though.

    In general I like tough flavours but don't have them often. Speyside is exactly what I'm looking at actually. I'm thinking of getting a Speyside, a Bourbon and something random as a three printer attack and just having a small sup every other day. But I've no idea what to look for, it's a bit option paralysis at the moment. Will defo do a thread tomorrow with some stuff I'm looking at

    Specially selected for todayís game:-
    Black Iris ďIím not from LondonĒ

    Although I hope they havenít rebranded, as this can is a bit different from their rather brilliant normal black and white drawings.

    "I'm not from London" was the group who did gigs at City for a bit, maybe a promoter sorta thing? The logo looks familiar

    Just checked the back of the can:-

    And it looks like youíre right.

    I love their usual branding, so want them to keep it!

    Cobra.

    Not bought any of this for a long time and pleased to say it has kept its integrity. Still a nice lager.
