RYDER CUP TUESDAY!

Well to say we’re excited would be understatement of the year!! The Ryder Cup is my single favourite moment of the year (and yes I know it’s only every two years), which makes the anticipation so much greater.

Suffice it to say we will not be moving from this spot from 7am til 8pm Sunday night!!!
Only 3 more sleeps:-)

BEER WITH DAVE: SIERRA NEVADA SUMMERFEST

SierraNevada_600px

Hello again!

In the last instalment of “Beer with Dave” I sampled one of the greats of Irish Craft Beer, McGargles Red Ale.

Today I have travelled slightly further from home to document another seasonal classic… ‘SIERRA NEVADA SUMMERFEST‘. Like the Anchor Summer Beer I sampled a few weeks ago, todays beer is only available for a few months each year. But it’s worth the wait! It’s a cool crisp lager with the hoppiness you expect from an American style beer.

I will leave it to Sierra Nevada themselves to give the perfect description of it.

“With a nod toward the original Czech tradition, Summerfest is brewed to feature the best of Bohemian nature. Crisp, golden, dry and incredibly drinkable, Summerfest has a delicate and complex malt flavor and spicy and floral hop character—the perfect warm weather beer.”

BEER WITH DAVE: 8º BAREFOOT BOHEMIAN PILSNER

8Degrees

Hi everyone. In the lead up to the Irish Craft Beer Festival in the RDS, Dublin I thought it would be worthwhile sampling & illustrating some of my favourite Irish Craft beers.

To kick it off I have been sipping on 8º’s Barefoot Bohemian Pilsner ! It’s bleedin’ delish!

8 Degrees is the brainchild of Kiwi & Aussie duo Cam & Scott. Who’s love of craft beers led them on the path to beery goodness!

Do check out all that they have to offer as their range of brews is extensive & delicious. You can check out their site here: www.eightdegrees.ie

BEER WITH DAVE: ANCHOR SUMMER BEER

This week I have mostly been drinking “Anchor Summer Beer” brought to us by the Anchor Brewing Co. This is a very refreshing American style filtered wheat beer, but I warn you, it is hoppier than Bugs Bunny on National Hopping Day!

As the name suggests it is a special brew released for the Summer months, so it is only available between April & October so snap some up quickly!

I have tried a few of the Anchor Brewing Co.’s beers but there are a whole host more out there. I’ll get there eventually! If you like this Summer Beer I would also recommend their Steam Beer.

It’s TGIF time! And this week it’s time to have a disco party with the one, the only Miguel Angel Jimenez & his now legendary warm up routine. If you don’t know Miguel he is probably the most charismatic golfer on the face of the earth. If he’s not on the links he’s sipping on a nice glass of Rioja or enjoying a fine cigar. We just can’t get enough of him here in DoodleMoose Towers!
