Cask Ale [22 Jun 2011|03:49am]

koppenhaver
The cask ale in my hand is about as fine of a beverage as I’ve ever had. According to the bar manager, it’s brewed with some of the most excellent water in England, free of the limestone contamination prevalent elsewhere in the country. It’s a Cornish Doom Bar ale, and I cannot think of a time in which I’ve enjoyed a beverage more than this moment.

I’m at the King’s Arms on Shepherd Street in London, a few blocks from Buckingham Palace. To put it mildly, it’s been a long day, and there’s still a ways to go. Somewhere in the past, I was in America worried about luggage choices, boarding passes, and whether I turned out the lights in my empty house. But now all of that’s behind me and I’ve successfully transitioned to English ways. And I love it. London is a magnificent city. Not only are the ale choices spectacular, but the rich history and polished properness of this ancient city overwhelm a wide eyed American traveler like me.

The primary reason for my visit is business. A dinner meeting kicks things off in a few hours. But until then, I’m savoring my ale, as well as the sampler plate of British treats that my wife and I ordered: chips & gravy, Shepherd’s pie, and mushy peas.

I’m a lucky man; thrilled to have this opportunity. And so far, London has vastly exceeded my expectations.

Bars in Graz. Austria [03 Jun 2011|08:37am]

steverogerson
How can you get jet-lagged going to Austria, they are only an hour ahead of us for xxxx's sake?

I flew there - to Graz - on Tuesday for a work trip and got back yesterday evening. I was pretty knackered and went to bed about 11pm, them woke up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep so eventually I gave up trying and got up at 4.30am.

Anyway, the extra hours gave me the opportunity to write about the bars I visited:

New beer from Castle Rock [04 Feb 2011|09:17am]

steverogerson
Yesterday, I had the unusual pleasure of going to a beer launch in my local area. The Nottingham Castle Rock Brewery has introduced a new seasonal beer called George Green after the famous mathematician and miller who was born and died in the Sneinton area of Nottingham where I live. The launch was at Green's Windmill. Here's my write-up of the new beer:

Раскрываем секреты пивопроизводства [29 Dec 2010|06:19pm]

cr2
Отправимся-ка мы в Мытищи на завод Московской Пивоваренной Компании, где нам покажут и расскажут все этапы производства. Почему завод именно в Мытищах? Ответ прост. Этот подмосковный город со времён Екатерины Великой славится своими артезианскими питьевыми водами. Данный фактор и был решающим в выборе места постройки одного из самых современных и молодых (с 2008 года) пивоваренных заводов Европы. Первоначальная мощность производства составила 240 млн л в год с постепенным расширением до 600 млн л. Потребителям продукция завода знакома такими марками как "Жигули" (не путать с "Жигулёвским"), "Моспиво" и рядом безалкогольных и энергетических напитков - например "Горилла" и "Москвас".
Компания изготавливает также по лицензии такие бренды, как Oettinger (Германия), Faxe (Дания), Breznak и Cervena Selka (Чехия), а также другие слабоалкогольные и безалкогольные напитки. Ладно, хватит слов, пошли на экскурсию по заводу
