Grown-up Travel Guide Beer Diary: Day 171

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 171: June 20, 2015

Diary entry:

Suddenly, it actually felt like summer at last.

Woke up to beautiful sunny weather and blue skies.

The ladies of the house used the opportunity to go shopping, I decided to go walking in the hills.

Used the excellent app from ut.no to find somewhere new to go within easy reach of home.

Had a fantastic yomp up Øyberget in Melhus without meeting another soul – gotta love Norway!

A lovely amber ale from Ego, who also have failed to disappoint so far and I have no expectations that they will do so. High quality beer from an excellent brewery!
