Summer Drinking

Today the first corny of my summer ale, Somerset went on tap. The recipe has always been a cracker (if I do say so myself!) and this year is no exception. In fact I think it may be one of the best yet, perhaps the switch from imported Styrians to NZ ones wasn’t so bad after all. Also on tap is the pilot batch of the Peoples Porter, when it first went on last week it had touch of greenness to it, not full blown acetaldehyde but in that direction. Thankfully today its tasting very good, the espresso has blended with the malts nicely, and has given it a touch of acidity that reminds me of the Meantime Coffee beer. I’m off up the coast for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and try not to think about the possibility of a Tory victory, I might have to fill some riggers.

a LOT of riggers will be needed judging by the front page of today's ToryPost: at least 3 years worth.

But the ToryStuff's last poll says it is going to be close as a close thing.

Epsom and Tauranga are probably the key seats to the whole election. I hope they both go to National, then we'll probably have a Labour/Green/Maori government and Peter Dunne will fuck off to the backbench rock that he scurried out from under...

Check this out, it's funny:

There's a Tory party in this election. I must have missed it...
