    I was stocking the fridge yesterday and most of the ipas you get in supermarkets these days are all 7-8% anyway.

    Can't go wrong with belgian beers, with most of the high percentage ones you won't even notice the extra booze as they taste so nice. You might notice it once you try to stand up after a few though! ;-)

    Went a bit savage on rum last night so a nice light white wine.

    Since I've changed to Wednesday and weekends for a drink, I seem to go a bit mental on a Friday.

    I should 'fess up that the aforementioned glass now contains 0% Freedamm beer...

    Love a drop of that, not had it in ages. Must be more varied in my wine buying, other than Malbec and cab sav.

    It was recalled for “potential microbiological contamination” this week

    Guinness 0% not vodka tonic

    Southern France is my usual go to, Cote du Rhone and all that, but I try to chuck some variety in the old majestic delivery

    Haha, I love Duvel. It was more that she picked it up because she liked the look of the bottle and expected a regular lighter lager for some reason. She took one sip and screwed up her face and handed it to me.

    At least I enjoyed it!

    I'm all about Argentinian and Chilean at the moment. I find a lot of French reds are perfect with food but aren't as quaffable for a drunk like me.

    Nothing until the pubs re-open - it just isn't the same :-(

    Yeah I went through a phase of burgundy or nothing, and a really good one is still the ultimate for me, just feel like a cunt glugging it down in front of Riverdale

    Nice selection! 😃

    I'm just about to go for a run, but definitely aiming to crack a beer or two later on.

    I'm jealous, a load of nice Belgian beers would hit the spot. I'm going to rake in the fridge soon and see what's lurking in there.

    Need to go on a beer shop run, or get an order in somewhere soon. The beer stash zone is getting a bit low...

    Right, a Drygate vs Fierce beer 'Peanut butter chocolate' Imperial stout.

    Sadly an underwhelming start to the weekend. It's ok, but I'd sooner have had one of Jono's beers!

    Not one of my better picks, but you never know until you've tried 'em.

    Today, I've had a Westmalle Dubbel. Lovely. So smooth. Those monks know their stuff.

    Now drinking a Guinness.

    Cardhu Gold Reserve.

    I'm not sure yet. I'll let you know in half a bottles time.

    Ooh nice I do like me some moretti and casillero del diablo. I hate gin though so you can keep all that.
