Best On Your Own

You get to an age and birthdays just become an excuse, an excuse to do what you want ans with me it’s to Beano. Born in Newport, Beano in Newport and to make it perfect, it rained.

Yeasty Wednesday

When there is a new pump coming on and you wait for it, then you see all the Yeast and you realise that the cask should have rested for longer, well it was that sort of day. Getting lighter in the mornings and the nights are drawing out. Still lots of February rain though. Still it was an Emergency Beano and it did me well.

When you are pre #mb01 2020, you need to get in training and since my train leaves from Newport, then Newport it was. Dark with afternoon rain and the Christmas tree still up. £2.50 a pint for cask ale in Tiny Rebel Newport.

The dead period between Christmas and the New Year. Some not bad beers around and quietly than normal. The good news, the wings are back at Tiny Rebel Newport. Drizzled.

It was two weeks before Christmas, it was raining (mostly) and the Tiny Bear was rather wireframe. Christmas is a time for spoiling your favourite brewery’s logo. So save the Tiny Bear. Mostly Pints, Mostly Strong and rather sleepy.

Strange Cheers

Post Oct-O-Bar 2019, still raining, still flooding. Newport, The Queens Hotel. Lots of cheering for England, possibly more than the All Blacks. The John Wallace Linton, more All Black Cheering. Too wet for for the Harbour Fish Bar, so off to the chippy next to the leaking Bus Station roof. Tiny Rebel has new staff. Confused that you get a glass with a can.

Bug Logging Day

The Spoons Autumn Real Ale Festival is roughly at the same time as major software houses upgrade time. That’s why the #SaturdayWrap (live from The Queens Hotel – Newport) is upside down. So that’s why it’s Bug Logging Time. It was a double chips day and I got grassy in The Pen & Wig. Rained.
