If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 2,000 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).

Yesterday, I got another two new Belgian beers, to go with the six I got last week. Lidl is looking up lately. The new beers were £4.99 or a four pack, £1.25 each, I got a pack of blonde and a pack of Amber. Last week it was presentation sixpack of Belgian beers for £10, £1.66 each, I have had three of them before but they are great beers, hope the other three are as good.
Here is one of them that I had last year, it is one of my all time favorites.

Van Steenberge, Gulden Draak from Belgium

10.5% very dark red in colour with a thin head, lot of fruit in the aroma and the taste is very complex, it was like eating a quarter pound of Midget Gems in one go (this is a UK thing I think), Lyons Midget Gems that is, not Maynards and it is strong, a new favourite for me.
