Thinking of getting a beerwulf sub, wondered if anybody had one and what they rated it? 

Not one of those but i did have one that took the 5 / 6 litre kegs that you can buy.

It was ok, it chilled it and kept it chilled but i felt it was just a bit of a gimmick and my 'draught' beer didnt really taste any different to canned versions.

I looked at one of these a while back out of interest but the price of the beers is expensive, not compared with a pint in the pub but compared with the same beer in cans.

If i had one of those 'Shed Pubs' that are becoming popular, i might invest just to have a 'pump' on the bar to give it a realistic feel, but dont think id bother otherwise.

That will be because it is essentially a jumbo sized can. Gone through the same pasteurisation process as a can rather than a keg. 
that’s why cans last up to a year and kegs a couple of months at the most.

Has anyone tried the kegs from BeerHawk which sit under the Philips beer dispenser? 

I note Leffe and La Trappe are both available in 6 litre kegs and I thought I might buy one for my son-in-law (before I visit his bar) 

😊🍻

I’ve been doing a massive detox so I haven’t had a drink for 11 weeks. I’ve lost loads of weight but it’s been difficult. I’ve carried on buying beers when I’ve seen something I fancy and I’ve bought loads of good whiskies.

I’m planning to have my first drink next Friday (this might do out of the window depending on the tension / result tomorrow!), so my question is which one of the lovely beers in my garage should I crack open first? I’ve narrowed it down to:

Vocation Imperial Honeycomb barrel aged 

Vocation barrel aged mole poblano stout 

Vocation barrel aged rum & ginger stout

Gulden Draak

Rochefort 8

St Feuillien Grand Cru

Straffe Hendrik Quadruple 

Tynt Meadow

Vocation Life & Death IPA

I imagine after 12 weeks my tolerance level will be pathetic so I’ll be trolleyed if I go for one of the Vocations. I really fancy the mole poblano stout, it’s incredible but it’s 11.5%!

Probably ease yourself in gently with the Tynt. Then have a lie down before tackling anything else

Tonight Matthew I'm listening to some old skool dance beats and drinking a bottle of Asda own label gin.

It doesn't get any better than this 😉

I won't knock it.

A couple of weeks ago I bought a dirt-cheap malt whisky from Morrisons (£16). I'd never heard of it before, and I can't remember what it's called now. It was absolutely brilliant. Just checked their website and it's not there any more (or nothing rings a bell), which is a shame.

Theakston's Old Peculier in the glass at the moment.

A nice doppelbock dunkel to calm the nerves after all today’s excitement.6C5F9F99-80DF-4B51-8D1D-BD6AC4D0B26A.thumb.jpeg.ef39f4b6857d897f5dd6c4ca48d0d80e.jpeg

That's tasty. We picked a few up last week from Beers of Europe.

I celebrated with a rare beer - St Austell Black Square Imperial Stout.

Got me through the game. Grundies on the end of the radiator behind the Riggwelter.  Something for the ladies.

Cant believe you drank it out of a Stoke glass.
