Grown-up Travel Guide Beer Diary: Day 105

Welcome to the Grown-up Travel Guide 2015 Beer Diary!

A little background info: in December a group of us decided to set up the 2014 Beer Advent Calendar, whereby we would try a new beer each day up until Christmas. We shared our tipples on Facebook and Instagram and a great time was had by all – plus we all got to learn about some fine brews from around the world.

Faced with a sense of emptiness when the challenge was over I decided that 24 days a year was just not enough. Why not a year of beer? And so here we are. I reckon a beer a day can keep the doctor away – but even if not it’ll be fun, right?

Given that a large proportion of the year 2015 will be spent in foreign climes there will be the added element of finding a new brew wherever we travel and there are a huge number of excellent beers available here in Norway too – most of which I doubt any of our readers will have heard of.

Your participation is not only encouraged but required – just use the hashtag #grownupbeerdiary if possible. Add your entries here and/or use our social media channels – whatever works best for you.

To keep it simple follow the same format as we do here: describe your day in a maximum of five sentences, add some info about the beer and a photo or two.

Obscure ales and imports IPAs are always interesting but there’s to be no snobbery here – anything goes, even alcohol-free as we all need a good alternative now and again. We’ll work out the practicalities as we go – but since the first day of the year is nearly over we better get started on this journey around the world – in beer form. Cheers!

Day 105: April 15, 2015

Diary entry:

On the road again!

As I write this update I’m sitting in the Lufthansa Business Lounge at Frankfurt Airport with a couple of hours to kill before my flight to Johannesburg.

With free beer, food, showers and a rest area with near-horizontal seating that shouldn’t be much of an issue.

In fact to be honest I booked it this way when redeeming my miles – so I would have a few hours to chill here before a long flight.

Although I was tempted to use a self-pulled free weissbier in the lounge as my beer diary entry, I decided to pay for one round the corner instead…

The Beer:

There’s not really much I haven’t already said about this one, but this is the first draught version to make the beer diary. I like it even better on tap and this didn’t disappoint. When in Germany, and all that (however briefly)…
