Only one pumpkin left to try this season. And then a whole lot of both standard things and really froofy things.

Froofy things? If it's what I think.



Woke up with blood in my alcohol stream. Summer temperature.


Ran out of beer.


Not a massive fan of cider but hot day this one's not to bad kinda like it. NZs oldest cidery apparently.


The beer isn't going away at least....

Bloomberg Article on the "Last Call for Cheap Beer"

Being a giant farm don't think we'll have to many shortages of ingredients. And we're not having the same logistics problems, truck drivers get paid reasonably well here.

Aluminium could be a thing but if only one could buy beer in glass bottles if such a thing is possible.

They sell beer in crates here, reuse the bottles. 9 litres of beer approx.

Don't wanna drink that brand but if things get that bad......

NZ refrigerator. Tie a rope to a crate and throw it in a river/lake.


Speights Summit Ale.


Waitress brought me the wrong drink as someone had changed the keg without telling her. 6/10 slight bitter and watery. Decent as far as Speights goes.

Emerson's Pale Ale


Much better 7.5/10.


Last pumpkin of the year.

Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin by New Belgium Brewing. "Pumpkin Ale featuring featuring cinnamon and habanero chili for just the right amount of heat.'

The foam on top was scary spicy. The beer is definitely just a sipping one but I can see it on a cold day. 86=Very Good, 3.82 on beer advocate. I guess I'd say "Solid Pumpkin Choice" but you need to be ready for it.
