Strange GMT Feeling Beano

03/11/2019 Leave a comment

Yellow rain warning, Yellow wind warning and sodden in the Malcolm Uphill. England lost in the Rugby, I got on the Penarth Flyer in the Sun. Head of Steam and Beelzebubs and the rain was back. Dorothy’s chip and it was rush to The City Arms to avoid getting sodden again. Early return home and there was minor flooding in Wood Street #Cardiff

Stillage Fest

A sign of old age no doubt but it was just Caerphilly on the last day of my leave. It was also the first day of the Wetherspoon’s Autumn Real Ale Festival. The Malcolm Uphill has all 40 Ales and six on Stillage. Good times.

Replacement Can Half Saturday

The Indian Summer has gone, it’s getting dark in the mornings and the rain, well the rain, it doesn’t stop. Also as it’s the end of the month, times are getting hard. So it’s only a half day in Caerphilly and an emergency Autumn haircut. The replacement for the Sixpoint cans have arrived in Wetherspoons. One from BrewDog and the other from Oakham Ales. They are not bad but I preferred the Sixpoint Ales. It was a Cloud Burst day and I was home for One.

A week of Buggy Software and Weather Warnings

Saturday Wrap – 28 September 2019

The Indian Summer has ended and it’s been a week of wind, rain and weather warnings. A sweet Pixel 3a Android 10 upgrade. Buggy Android, Windows, iOS and iPadOS software this week and why software companies should concentrate more on quality than quantity of software. The Rugby World Cup 2019 and it’s effect on Pubs and beer. Live from The Malcolm Uphill, Caerphilly #SaturdayWrap

Lolffest7 – 03 August 2019

11/08/2019 Leave a comment

There is something about Lolffest or in this case Lolffest7. It’s a roughly quarterly beer festival at Bragdy Twt Lol, on the Treforest Industrial Estate in South Wales. Bragdy is Welsh for Brewery so if you are an English speaker, so of the spellings may look unusual.

A Costa Capp and Bacon Roll to start

Then of course my local Spoons, The excellent Malcolm Uphill in Caerphilly. Got to do a bit of prep of Lolffest doesn’t start until 12:00

And yes I’m early

It’s only about a 20 minute bus ride to The Treforest Industrial Estate. Get off at The Pottery. Go down the road between The Pottery and The QED Centre, cross the bridge and it’s 200m on the left hand side.

There is a sign too

Take a photo of the nut they said. I had no idea it was Aluminium.

Mostly to keep the flies out

Getting there early gets you the pick of the seats, or in this case casks. Of course I ended up in the corner.

The fridge magnets are bottle openers too. Two Quid to you Guvnor. Pretty Fly For A Magpie was the pick of the Fine Ales. The oversize glass is a winner too.

Hoppy, fruity and refreshing.

It did however rain on the way home. The Great British Summer of course.
