The ‘Belly can brief

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

YellowBelly does cans now. If you’ve been following Irish beer on the internet or the shelves of the better shops you’ve probably noticed. The first two out are the Citra Pale Ale and YellowBelly Lager.
I was absolutely stunned by how good the latter was the first time I had it, down at the brewpub in 2015. It didn’t look so attractive poured from the can: murky and with a total failure of a head. Still tastes pretty bang-on though.  Continue reading »

Wines of Italy’s Marche
Carminucci Family impress with this set

The Marche (pronounced Mar-kay) is a long narrowish region on the east of Italy, between the Adriatic and the Apennines. The main cities are Pesaro in the north, Ascoli in the south and Ancona in between. It has an ancient wine-making tradition and its warm and cool viticultural zones mean a variety of produce.  Continue reading »

For a long time, senior citizens represented the under-served market
among cell phone carriers. Most network providers focused on creating
the latest
smart, complicated phones and accessories for the younger generation
and overlooked the needs of seniors who often desire simple, affordable
and durable
phones. Fortunately, there are some companies which are now offering
cheap cell.  Continue reading »

No laughing matter

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

This bottle of Naparbier’s Mad Clown pale ale followed me home from the Alltech festival last month where it won Best Pale Ale in the competition there. They’ve badged it as an “extra” pale ale, and it’s 5.7% ABV so I dunno why they didn’t just call it an IPA and be done with it. Probably to cheat at beer competitions.
Anyway, I noticed lots of yeasty goop sloshing around at the bottom of the 33cl bottle so I made damn sure to pour carefully.  Continue reading »

With the vast number of prepaid cell phone plans on the market, it
can be downright confusing to compare each one of them. All these
prepaid
plans seem to have different pricing structures as well as activation
periods.
Many people are switching over to prepaid cell phone plans because
they are sick of dealing with the phone companies that make them sign
two-year
contracts, which they.  Continue reading »

Carriers are becoming less aggressive. Several no-contract, prepaid
wireless providers in the U.S. are now offering prepaid sim card service. Prepaid SIM cards are becoming an increasingly popular option for consumers
looking to connect to a mobile phone network.
The main reason why prepaid
SIM cards
are becoming a vastly popular choice is due to the fact that they are.  Continue reading »

Working in an office, as I do, I observe all kinds of hierarchies. There is the obvious boss, manager, worker that has stood the test of time in most organisations. In this digital age, there is the techno pyramid, with a black clad Head of IT ruling supreme, the workings of the organisation totally dependant on him and his code punching underlings. Outriders to these are the maverick rainmakers. These are guys who write their own rules.  Continue reading »

Last year I promised myself that for the next Wetherspoon Real Ale Festival I’d go and explore the newer northern branches of the chain in Dublin. Sadly, time constraints last weekend meant that plan had to go on the long finger so, on a beautiful clear cool Saturday morning I set off, as usual, for Dún Laoghaire.
Word on the street was that Mild the Gap was the beer to look out for, brewed at Hook Norton by Italian brewery MC-77.  Continue reading »

The Smithwick’s Experience, Kilkenny

Amuse Bouche

A post by Cork Billy at RESTAURANTS AND FOOD

If rubbing shoulders with the good and great floats your boat, read on… Dr Michael Smurfit invited me to a private dinner at his K Club. His firm, Woodfab, was having problems procuring enough timber from Coillte at the right price. …… The encounter didn’t yield any progress… The most memorable feature of the night was that Smurfit drank different wine (Petrus, I think) from us out of his own decanter. Bad manners, methought, even if what we drank was top-notch vino.  Continue reading »

What Touken do

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

My experience with Breton beers hasn’t been great, so when a new set arrived courtesy of my father-in-law last year I didn’t exactly lamp into them straight away. They ended up sitting in the back of the fridge an indecently long time and I was surprised when I finally got round to drinking them to find that there was still quite a few months to go on the expiry date. How considerate of Brasserie Artisanale Touken to give their beers such generous lifespans.  Continue reading »

Every evening when I get back from the allotment I look at my hands. They’re not as soft as they used to be, yet the children still say my touch is just as light as when they themselves were pumpkin-sized. They’re not the prettiest hands you’ll see and after a long day working at the plot there will always be a little lingering dirt even after the third soak.  Continue reading »
