hello old friend

January 5, 2017

Hopping in to heinous beers that are awesome on holiday sees a reappearance of beer blogging. Haywards 5000 was a companion of mine in southern India where its high ABV eased many a day on the road in that incredible place.

Who knew it was available outside India, why is it available outside India?

The best memories I have looking back now are from a scruffy hotel, in a fairly unremarkable town that had a NASA theme subterranean bar.

We still talk about India all the time, we often joke ‘it all comes back to India in the end’. We are living out the often heard  Indian travel truism – you start to forgive the place as soon as you leave.

While some may think that Dad and I were in Melbs for the GF, essentially we were there on a eat and drink a-thon. A big highlight of which was the awesome Delhi Streets.  There is even a tiny hipster coffee place in the lane next door, run of course by a chap from Perth.

That hit of chemical alcohol took me back to the good days,  very much like how the smell of a drain reminds me of happy times on the road.
