Sober For October

I’ve had comments from some of my Facebook friends that all I seem to do is eat and drink. That’s not really true, it’s just I don’t post up everything I do every day. Mostly, like many people, it’s going to work, and that’s not in the slightest bit interesting, so I don’t post stuff about that!

Anyway, I thought I’d have a go at being sober for October.  The most difficult times will be when I’ve got a day off and go out. That’s when I will tend to go to a pub, both to sample some decent craft beer, and to get something to eat (pubs often give the best value for money when it comes to eating out.

So here we are, October 1.  Let’s give this a go. Perhaps I’ll even lose a few pounds along the way!



A rather good pale ale, that went down a treat after a day at work, and before I headed out to walk to the local river to do my monthly water sampling.

Collaboration with the Danish brewery brew Beer Here. Pale ale with rye malt and hops Zealanders. Amara, dry with a strong fruity aroma and resin … Hard to find! Brewed with rye malt and Columbus and Motueka hops.

I certainly enjoyed this, and I’ll be on the look out for it again.
