  1. Paddy, we have similar taste. The Sopranos and The Wire are friggin’ brilliant. If you haven’t already checked it out, try Deadwood. It rounds out my top 3.
  2. Give it up everyone, I’m going to enter my clone of tun mid-strength! Nothing could beat that...
  3. Yep, I never really got into anything post-aenima, loved that and opiate. Like hairy, seeing is believing for me.
  4. Made out like a bandit there mate. I wonder what a home brewer could do with a dozen long neck bottles...
  5. Yep, very good little bottles, I have a dozen and might grab another 6 pack. I have another dozen grolsh 450ml swing tops, they’re good too. But I really like the altenmunster 500ml swing tops. Very thick glass and look great but a bit pricey.
  6. My dad brewed at some point in the 80s or early 90s and by all reports of people who drank it, including himself, it was rubbish. I’m no master brewer but my old man often comments that my beers are better than just about anything he buys. And these days I’ve converted him from a tooheys red drinker into a seeker of fine ales, and he now he is back brewing himself doing the odd batch in the little craft fv I gave him. and +1 to Hairys comment on top of all that!
  7. Jeez, belushi’s bars take me back. I used to often go to the “ain’t nothing but blues” bar near Piccadilly for an arvo open mic (I recall lots of Neil young, Beatles, Hendrix and stones being covered, some well and some not so much) then on to belushis (I can’t remember which one). And lots of good bars and pubs in places like Camden too. I quite enjoyed the Heineken brewery tour in Amsterdam, but I was possibly still under the influence of the previous night’s space muffins... Obviusly Munich has the beer halls covered (hofbrau hause etc), can’t go wrong there. But overall I loved the little local pubs and bars. I don’t remember any specifically secret, the-place-to-be spots but I reckon you’ll stumble across some real gems yourself, and it won’t take much effort. Just ask a local or the hosts where you’re staying. As you say it won’t be tough to find a good beer!
  8. The force is strong with this one...
  9. I think there could be something in pairing music and beers...
  10. Amorphis. Gojira. Between the buried and me.... Hairy, King Rud, other legends. How is it just now that I’m realising there’s a bunch of metal heads on here? Perhaps I haven’t been on this thread before... Is it possible there is some kind of positive strong correlation between liking to quaff your own tasty brew beer whilst listening to brutal tunes? I’d say it is very likely due to some shared Viking ancestry. But to be honest, as much as I love metal (especially 90s era metal when carcass were at the top of their game and bands like at the gates were hitting their stride) I don’t get to listen to it much. My 3 year old daughter is currently dancing around the lounge room to Taylor swift.
  11. I was keen to join a local group of apathetics anonymous, but lost interest...
  12. I got a 6 pack of the hop thief 9 on a Dan Murphy’s members special. I was a bit disappointed too, expecting more from the citra and calypso. And I also preferred the 7 with the mosaic. It’s an ok drop, at the discount price, but not full price. Maybe my palette has changed in the last few years where what I used to think was a good whack of hops, now barely hits the sides.
  13. That sucks mate, sounds like you have a bit of natural talent for it too.
  14. Yeah, I’ve met a few of those kinds of meat-dodgers. I reckon getting up on the high horse is the main aim for that type, rather than the more valid reasons. I am interested in what that horse may taste like though...
