Grown-up Travel Guide Beer Diary: Day 160

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 160: June 9, 2015

Diary entry:

Had the luxury of spending my entire working day on blogging and trip planning.

Sorted most of the three weeks of accommodation we will need in Spain next month – can’t wait!

As if that wasn’t enough, confirmation of my upcoming trip to Okinawa, Japan, dropped into my inbox.

Now I just need to catch up with everything else before the end of the month.

Took advantage of a break in the rain to walk round the lake, too.

Another excellent one – this could convince m to drink more lagers; apparently they used Champagne yeast but whether or not that was the reason, this is very refreshing.

    Dear Andy
    I have written an article about bunker conversion if Berlin and found an image of the Pallasstrasse Berlin one taken by you on a blogsite. Can I reproduce it in my academic article (ie non profit-making!) to be published in the journal Textual Practice?
