Thought I'd start a Currently Drinking topic. I've seen one on other forums, I think this one needs one.
Mods-if there's already one, then please feel free to delete & point me in the right direction.

I'll start.
Beer. Black Sheep Golden Sheep Ale. 4.5%. Nice, though I prefer dark sweet beers. Cheers!

Mostly Yorkshire Tea, though I had a bottle of Speckled Hen last night (A beer named after an MG car....I drove an MG yesterday too).

For me the original Speckled Hen produced by Morland Brewery had a far superior taste to that currently being produced.

Fancy getting your ale delivered in style? These guys aren't easily deterred by the look of the first picture! Lets hope they had some WD-40 in the van, just in case....http://www.stoneyfordbrewco.co.uk/the-alebulance/

Got me a gottle of gear in the form of Wychwood brewery's Hobgoblin tonight, and a fine 5.2% brew it is too. :P

Currently drinking tea, whilst enjoying a lie in, and contemplating getting up to collect son from cub camp.

Had Sainsbury's Dark Porter last night. Nice, but not quite sweet enough for my taste.

Oh and Peroni Gran Riserva in Pizza Express, near Paddington station, which washed down a pizza very nicely!

At home: Lazy Sunday coffee by Taylor's of Harrogate, or Earl Grey tea. The occasional gin (Bombay Sapphire) with tonic or cheap sparkling plonk.

Out: Hazlenut latte (Costa Coffee) or Caramel Macchiato (Coffee #1).

Pub: Carling or equivalent mass-produced lager. Peroni in huge quantities if I have nothing to do the following day.

We took some friends to Mount St Bernard Abbey yesterday and bought a couple of bottles of their Trappist ale to try. The monks have given up on dairy farming and have revived their brewing tradition.
Beautifully made and presented but you almost need a spoon to get it out of the bottle! Too strong for me...it's called Tynt Meadow.
Fabulous place to visit though.

Yes, about 10 minutes off junction 23 of the M1. A lovely spot in Charnwood Forest. Some of the oldest fossils in the world are found in the local rock outcrops. The abbey was designed by Pugin (Houses of Parliament fame) and the grounds and gardens are very peaceful. Easy to understand why the monks decided to settle there. There was a Frogeye Sprite parked outside the guests house, which has been used by some interesting people over the years.

My son-in-law brought me a couple of bottles of this from the first batch. Wonderful stuff, to be enjoyed in moderation,

Erdinger Weißbier last night. Rather partial to a bit of German wheat beer.
