Apropos IPA ales, I recently stayed with my daughter and her husband. They tend to buy beer in cans from assorted places, Brewdog and others that I have never heard of.

I sampled about half a dozen of things labeled "IPA" and I have to say I was not impressed. FFA* would be a better acronym. I am not that fussy, but most of them were dire, and none bore any resemblance to a real IPA.

'Proper beer' hard to get out here but local Lidl have started punting out boxes of 'Golden Ales' - a dozen 1/2l bottles of British finest for €14. Bargain. The contents changes from time to time but it's always decent.

America has some pretty decent local craft beers. These "IPAs" are not.

In the yard, a cheeky little pig started to make a name for himself. Random mischievous acts were being encountered, often accompanied by a glimpse of a curly tailed behind, scrambling away with the cutest of little snorts. So infamous was this little character that he's ended up on a bottle or two...

One of the stinkiest factories I've ever been to, smelled like really strong apple vinegar (not really surprising), they were really nice people, you always came away with a load of apple juice and cider, 3 people I knew died in a car accident on the bend at the bottom of the hill in 1987.

I shared a bottle of this with my Dad at Christmas. I saw it in Sainsbury's and thought "WTF is that?", which is a red rag to a bull as far as food goes with me.

We ended up drinking it chilled from Wine glasses, which worked well. I really liked it, but it deffo more of a summer BBQ thing.

Glenfarcas 105 cask strength single malt. Rather nice stuff that the wife enjoys as well. We also finished off a bottle of Laphraoig rather quickly as it is just so lush (quickly is a month for us).

I gave a bottle of Laphraoig away this week. I love a single malt, but Islay's are undrinkable imho.
