Grown-up Travel Guide Beer Diary: Day 66

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 66: March 7, 2015

Diary entry:

First full day back at home and time to start unpacking.

Had a load of video and photographs to transfer, so that was task #1.

At the same time I got started on a large translation job that came in last night.

Then made a start on the mass of business cards and brochures collected in Berlin.

And, I even made it to spinning – quite a shock after a week off.

This is a great pale ale, brewed in the UK and available at a very reasonable price – for Norway. One of the own-brand brews from the fantastic Gulating Beer Store here in Trondheim. Thumbs up!
