Blood Sweat and Tears, Morning Walk Over, It's Beer Time!
Long weekender up in the mountains with family anticipate some walking, drinking, enjoying a night under the stars. Last weekend came packed with all aforementioned.
Being inland means hot days and much cooler nights, arriving Friday perhaps I let the hair down a little too much enjoying red wine watching the moon rise over the water.
Next morning was sweet revenge, my brother mentioned a lovely walk along the river (a separate story), all I will say it was blood, sweat and tears... for me! It was way too hot up in an area where they have not seen rain in ages, well let us not whine about it, I survived!
Late afternoon when all was said and done, the cool breeze off the mountains to fan me down, time to hit one of those craft beers I purchased on the way into the trout farm, last call shopping is always in Nottingham Road.
Without further ado let's take a closer look at the Pickled Pig porter, a craft beer I have missed no longer available locally. Picking up a special pack with four that I have tried over the years I will share them slowly for full enjoyment.
ABV 4.5% IBU: 24 - Nottingham Road Brewery started brewing in 1994/5
440 ml hand crafted beer, a proudly KwaZulu-Natal addition to a slightly bitter full rounded beer of South African origin.
Dark pour with full frothy head, by this time temperature was down to 14 deg C from a scorching 29 deg C around midday. No time to chill the glass as one would naturally do on the coast.
Enjoyment beyond reasonable doubt, I enjoy a heavy beer in cooler weather, the bitter full flavour rolling around your mouth as you start to swill it down, washing the dust away. Oh it looks like an ant wanted to take a sip as well crawling up the glass.
Contentment at the end of a day with the farm dog Shadow enjoying watching the sky change colour, moon rising at the end of day.
