A New Strain For Black Friday

27/11/2021 Leave a comment

Just in time for Christmas, a new strain of the Rhona. I use the last of my saved Costa Coffee Beans. The Bar in The Lord High Constable now opens at 09:00 instead of 10:00, very positive. Gentle Dogs, lots of people and Pink Floyd on YouTube. A massive Mini Beano.

When clear skies, high pressure weather and 50 mile an hour speed limits make your outbound Beano journey much easier. An extra five Nectar points at Sainsbury. Why the Costa App needs lots of work. The Gorilla in The Regal in a Santa App. App Store Black Friday deals. The wind is cutting but the Sun is warm. Excellent Ales in The Pelican Inn but the Internet was down for the first two hours. Lovely Pub, lover Pub Fire.

The 4K Mini Beano

Testing the tech and using Filmic Pro via the remote on the iPhone to record the Saturday Wrap in 4K. A unique and a Full English in The kings Fee to start the day. Watch out for huge dogs in The Hereford Beer House. Had my place as well. Still no rain.

The GMT Mini Beano

Sometimes you just want to take it easy. Sometimes it’s just because you can. But mostly it’s what I do. Wales being not up to the job and making the most of Hereford while I can. The Kings Fee has FTTC and booths. Semi Optimised departure gave me a mostly light journey and 20 extra Nectar points in Sainsbury. 

Nine weeks and a new, slightly different Hereford Beer House. 

Wind Down Sunday

So the Spoons website said it was open at 06:30 but it actually wasn’t open until 08:00. Who knows with the Rhona. It 07:30 it was closed, however the WiFi reached out into the Beer garden. And testing of PIA with the Cloud has been successful so far. Turns out the bar at The Knights Templar opens at 08:00.

Moor Beer is closed on a Sunday, a Creepy Crawley got in my and I ripped my contact lens getting it out. I am making new plans like the wind. Raining.

So I went to LHG and had two, including one with Kveik Yeast. I pushed off when it filled out. I tried looking in The Barley Mow but that was full to the rafters. There mb05 ended.

Another Saturday Taproom

It’s been ages since I have used the Starbucks app and I still had some credit on it, which was a plus. The barcode scanning method seems more effective too. We need faster Internet, whether it is mobile, fixed or Public WiFi. It’s interfering with my Festival drinking. Bristol Rovers are at home to Newport County and the Commercial Rooms is full of Rovers fans. The Stillage and the bar cask Festival Ales are beginning to run dry.

So you go looking for a joint Taproom (via Google Maps) and you fine a Left Handed Giant Taproom. Great Ales and Glasses and I come away with a glass in a well wrapped Box. Great customer service. Just around the corner is the Newtown Park / Verdant Tamproom. Solid brews and a mobile van Chicken Sandwich. Didn’t rain.

Lazy Friday Pubbing

Walking along the river bank just before dawn, it’s why Bristol in Autumn is a quality Beano. Coinbase gave me $6.00 USD worth of new Crypto. I ping PIA Support with my iOS issue. I sign up for Worldcoin and another 7 Festival Ales are in the bag, however not all of them are uniques.

Chief said try the Cornubia and I did. What a cracking pub, a return visit is on the cards. Then onto the Barley Mow, the Bristol Beer Factory’s home Pub and what a cracking Pub. Bristol is also an Electric Scooter City.

Superior Stillage

You know when it rains when it isn’t forecast, however it had stopped by the time I got to Newport. Mind you the cold had arrived. The train arrived on time although it was only a two coach Class 158 but it was nicely refurbished. Bags dropped efficiently at the Ibis. Coffee in the Knights Templar and PIA needed to be uninstalled again.

The Commercial Rooms had all Autumn Festival Ales on still and there was not a dud out of the seven I had. The Shift Manager was great and it turns out she was from Aber.

Moved on to The Left Handed Giant Brewpub. Got weak and bought a T-shirt. Great place but needs faster WiFi. Quality start to #mb05.

Not Trusting The App

17/10/2021 Leave a comment

A Saturday Emergency Beano. An RTA on Newport Road. The bus before mine I saw tacking the Graig-y-Rhacca route. The Stagecoach App said everything was fine. I decided to wait at the bus stop on the Graig-y-Rhacca route. I was right. And while we are at it, what is it with PIA and the Cloud’s captive portal under iOS? Still it didn’t rain. Tiny Rebel Newport, not quite back to normal. I miss the fridge full of Guest Fine Ales. And it was the 50A back home.

Deya Taproom

Begin the day with a little red sky, then blue sky and then Spoon’s Coffee. Discover a wonderful Beer Garden with a Stream and then drinl a Bragdy Conwy brew. Google Maps guided in the Sun, I progressed on to The Deya Brewery Taproom.

It was large, it was clean and they were still doing table serving. On 2 medium T-shirts but the world of the Finesat of Fine Ales. The toilets were very clean to. WiFi ADSL2+.
