The Dark Star beer is only available in the Winter, there's a nice big logo though:

Also the rest of the beers look awesome:

I'm particularly interested in Six Hop, Green Hopped IPA, the Imperial Stout and Revelation.

Very true, and a lot of folks are surprised by it. My family in the US lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, while my Europe family are in southern Germany. When the World Cup was here in 1994, one of my dad's nephews wanted to stay at our house and follow the Germany team, driving to the stadium on game days. He didn't realize the size of the US: the closest match was in Chicago (6 hour drive,) then there was Washington (10 hour drive,) and Dallas (almost a two day drive!) After my dad explained it to him, he decided not to do that.

Time for a bit of system maintenance - with this. Cheers everyone, and have a good evening - this one comes in 'Slackware size'.

It's a plasma ball on a 0.8 second exposure! I've had a love of them ever since the '80s.

Chilling at home with my Slackware computer. It works so smoothly and makes me so happy. Running Slackware with Cinnamon!

Drinking a Imperial IPA from Sweden. Cheers!

Cheers to you too. In one of my favourite London pubs at the moment with my Slack netbook, listening to music and researching networking [by which I mean wifi networking]. Great way to spend some time. It's not everyone's idea of fun but it's certainly mine.

On the recommendation of cynwulf I'm on some of the Polish beers tonight.

This Perła [Chmielowa] is great - a very good recommendation. Definitely one of the better Polish beers I've had. I've got a Zywiec lined up for afters. Cheers to Slackware and to any Polish Slackers out there.

It's good stuff, I do like the Perla Miodowa as well, but only in small doses.

For me it was Zubr last night. We have several good off licences here, but it was so cold, that I popped to the nearest one which only sells Zubr and Tyskie (but not Polish Tyskie). The pubs don't do anything except the usual slop and Tyskie (also not Polish).

Another Swedish DIPA called "Crush Crush Crush". Very hoppy and a lot of fruity flavours. It is good to live in Sweden now, beers are popping up everywhere.

Maybe someone can enlighten me on how only us Whites make a culture out of the lowest grade alcohol: beer. Then the millions upon millions of dedicated fans of the lowest grade beer makers: Irish and Guinness. Now, us Irish can make some mighty fine whiskey, beer, well I challenge you to drink the swill from the Maritimes and Ireland. Horrid piss. I cannot figure it out, honestly, and I have solved some very complex things.

Thanks for the entertaining stories. Cheers to Slackware, except my glass is containing rum.
