Grown-up Travel Guide Beer Diary: Day 148

by in Beer Diary, Eat, Drink and Be Merry.

Welcome to the Grown-up Travel Guide 2015 Beer Diary!

A little background info: in December a group of us decided to set up the 2014 Beer Advent Calendar, whereby we would try a new beer each day up until Christmas. We shared our tipples on Facebook and Instagram and a great time was had by all – plus we all got to learn about some fine brews from around the world.

Faced with a sense of emptiness when the challenge was over I decided that 24 days a year was just not enough. Why not a year of beer? And so here we are. I reckon a beer a day can keep the doctor away – but even if not it’ll be fun, right?

Given that a large proportion of the year 2015 will be spent in foreign climes there will be the added element of finding a new brew wherever we travel and there are a huge number of excellent beers available here in Norway too – most of which I doubt any of our readers will have heard of.

Your participation is not only encouraged but required – just use the hashtag #grownupbeerdiary if possible. Add your entries here and/or use our social media channels – whatever works best for you.

To keep it simple follow the same format as we do here: describe your day in a maximum of five sentences, add some info about the beer and a photo or two.

Obscure ales and imports IPAs are always interesting but there’s to be no snobbery here – anything goes, even alcohol-free as we all need a good alternative now and again. We’ll work out the practicalities as we go – but since the first day of the year is nearly over we better get started on this journey around the world – in beer form. Cheers!

Day 148: May 28, 2015

Diary entry:

Had to get into translation work early today but managed to squeeze in a walk in the woods too.

Also did some planning for the next couple of trips – a wedding in Bath at the weekend and our summer trip to Spain in July.

In the evening I reached a point in the project where I felt I had done enough for the day and it was beer time.

I also finished off the last two episodes of the third season of ‘House of Cards’.

I know, I did well to wait so long – what a great ending, huh?

Another goodie from Adnams, who I think I just have to visit. Their website shows their full range of beers and there is plenty of interest – unfortunately we can’t get all of it here but I guess we should be grateful that we can get any at all. This is a fresh and tasty lager – another good summer drink.
