The title of this (bonus) Malthouse blog proves once and for all that it is not just those groovy hip cats at Yeastie Boys who can insert seemingly poignant song lyrics into virtually any beer related material.

“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present”: Darkest Days

The next pipe wrench has been officially confirmed by the bare-footed, balsamic and basipetal Malthouse Unit Manager Ciaran. On Monday, the next edition of “June-ipur”, Malty’s new month long celebration of gin and beer, will see a match of River Rose Gin (40%) – from Iowa and bursting with notes of citrus, juniper, rose petals and cucumber, paired with Panhead Canhead Lola Deville Rosehip and Hibiscus Saison (7%) – think dried roses, citrus, tart notes and gently warming alcohol. I’m not a fan of “soppy flowers” but may have to make an exception for this one.

"I'll stick with gin. Champagne is just ginger ale that knows somebody."

The title for this blog post is taken from Doctor Hawkeye Pierce on one of the most popular television series of all time – M*A*S*H. [1] The final episode on February 28 1983 - "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen" – was at the time the most-watched and highest-rated single television episode in US television history with a record-breaking 125 million viewers. [2] If you can watch this episode without crying then you officially have no soul.

President Trump? President Clinton? I’m going to need a stronger drin

Every 24 hours the American Presidential Election gets a day closer. It also becomes increasingly inevitable that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee – baring any political shenanigans at the GOP Convention – and Hilary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee – barring any legal shenanigans about using a private and potentially unsecure email server while being Secretary of State. [1].
