Paradise Lost & Paradise Regained
I apologise that things have been a little sparse around here of late, but recently my work/life balance has been moving further and further towards the former. However I’ve just had a holiday in Ireland and have come back refreshed. In fact, some evenings I was so refreshed that my kidneys ached in the morning.
More of that soon, but just now, and further to my previous post, I’d like to congratulate Zak and the lads for the resurrection of Beer Ritz and Beer Paradise. The beer geeks of West Yorkshire can breathe a collective sigh of relief, whilst their partners and children weep over the extra disposable income that has been wrenched from their grasp.
And what better way to celebrate the good ship Beer Ritz safely making it back to port over the choppy waters of company law, with a new co-captain in Zak, than with a new beer? Zak Avery, Pete Brown and Mark Dredge collaborated with Brewdog on probably the most scholarly beer of all time. Who’s left to review it?
It’s just a shame that the beer was brewed before Zak’s elevation to an officer of the company, otherwise they could have called it Director’s Pilsner.
Launches of the new Imperial Pilsner will take place this evening at three locations: North Bar in Leeds and The Rake and The Jolly Butchers in London, each presumably with the most local of the three proud brewscribes in attendance. I don’t think I’m going to be able to make it to North due to work, but I would encourage you to if you can.
