When it comes to beer appreciation, I’m a complete noob. It was only in the last year that I discovered the truly amazing qualities of the fine brew and wa-wa-wee-wah, have I been making up for lost time. So many delicate flavours and beautifully golden hues that pair perfectly with Sunday afternoons as well as they do with matured cheese or (and I shall prove this) as flavouring for ice-cream. Malted goodness. *air punch*
There are a few of us bloggers who’ve been invited to create our very own beer. @BangersAndNash dropped off our packages that included a rathe impressive beer vat with a funky anti-explosion valve thing. The package also includes sterilizers, hops, yeast and carbonation tablets, everything you need to craft your own beer. The thing I am most proud of is that I haven’t been checking the sleepy vat every 30minutes so by the time it’s being judged at the Cape Town Festival of Beer at the end of Nov, I’m sure that it’s going to be a treat.
