Beer Diary: Day 3 – More Toronto

Note: I skipped mentioning the dinner I had last night, because it was nothing special at all. But I’ve thought about it, and I feel that if I’m going to tell everyone about the good parts of this trip, I should also mention the spots to miss. W Burger Bar on College St was the…

Beer Diary: Day 2 – Toronto

Two interesting things this morning. 1. Woke up at 8am fresh as a daisy…NO JET LAG!! 2. It was snowing in Toronto. Yep, wasn’t expecting that one. I’ve only ever been snowed on twice in my life, and both of those times were in Toronto. Anyway, I did my first workout in days this morning…

Beer Diary: Day 1 – BNE to LAX to Toronto

I’ve decided that I’m going to keep a day-by-day account of this years North America tour rather than trying to find time to do proper blog posts. Well, I’m going to try to anyway. If I miss a few days, just know it’s because the beer is reeeaalllyyyy good… Monday 14/4: not much to say…

Instead I decided that I was going…

Stuff you may have missed

Firstly, I must apologise for my recent disappearing act – it’s been 32 days since my last post! Oh the shame… But there were a few valid reasons for my absence: It’s difficult to run a blog when your home internet access mysteriously disappears for 25 days straight (thanks again Optus!) I’ve been ridiculous busy with work, and since work pays the bills,…

DC Debrief: Part One

By the time we got to DC I had completely shaken off my jet lag, so I made it my mission to get beery. Lucky for me, DC made this a very easy task to achieve. Our first trip was up to U Street to line up for some of Ben’s famous half-smoke chili dogs…
