    When something is so good, why stop at one?

    I’m still sitting on my 750ml bottle but looking forward to trying it soon.

    Sipping a tasty dry Riesling from Germany (Hofman Hundertgulden Riesling Trocken).

    Had a nice Coffee Stout from Avery Brewing company this past weekend called "Out of Mind". This one, when it warmed up a little, the coffee really came through. Good beer, would definitely have it again! If you can find it on tap, well worth it.

    Sounds great, I find stouts generally tend to peak around cellar temp...

    Speaking of which, I enjoyed a nitro milk stout from Left Hand this evening.

    Left Hand has great nitro milk stout! One of my go to beers, especially at places that usually only have a stout in a bottle or can and not on tap!

    If you're dreaming, look at Pétrus.

    Well Champagne goes with about anything, but I think it's a matter of personal taste. I find often a dry white will go with about anything no matter what tradition says. It's often better with cheese than red.
    For Chinese/Thai/indian I prefer beer.
    Belgian beer is best I think They have such variety and always excellent quality.
    I'm British but a traitor as I always find British ale tastes soapy to me.
    If it's the wine which really matters and you want it to memorable, I go for red and I adore the wines of the Loire valley (red and white). But a good claret won't last long with me either.
    A nice alternative is also some of the Belgian Lambic beers- Lindemans Framboise for example. So clean and sharp.

    Sounds delicious; this is the time of year for good (robust) stouts.

    Changed out the tag on our wine locker at a local steakhouse and grabbed a nice bottle of Pinot Noir for dinner.

    That sounds an elegantly civilised and cultured way in which to pass an evening with your partner.

    The drinks table at the rear of the picture seems to be impressively well stocked.

    Nice healthy pour of _____ scotch once I decide what to indulge myself with.

    On my second in fact. Very enjoyable it is to. I'll have to restock my fridge tomorrow I think.

    Good idea. Enjoy, and do restock.

    Time to open my second beer, as I have been on the phone for much of the past hour.

    Where do you buy your Founders from? I ask as I have been keeping an eye out for it but so far it eludes me? Over Christmas I viewed several beers in a few supermarkets but did not see anything made by Founders.

    My (up market) off licence manages to obtain some. Thus far, (cough), I seem to have been able to lay hands on er, three crates.

    I shall pay them a visit presently, and see how many bottles (or crates) they have left; then, I shall offer to buy them, or as many as they are prepared to sell me.
