Four months without an update. Shameful. Disgraceful.
I can only come up with half-arsed excuses, such as constantly injuring myself whilst playing failing at 5-a-side, my new shiny new phone distracting me, or just thinking about Maya Jane Coles (see is a bit of alright!) so apologies.
In-between the relaxing time of January and an absolute cavalcade of boozy, hazy nights around March and April, The Portcullis has been ticking over quite nicely. Tasty beers have been flowing very steadily, including some awesome beers from the likes of Dawkins, Moor, Windsor & Eton, BBF and more. On the bottled beers front, our range has expanded somewhat. With no fewer than 20 different beers from USA, Iceland, Norway, Belgium and Germany, it really is quite something.
I am glad to announce we are entering festival season at The Portcullis, kick starting with the Eurovision Beer Contest.
Over 25 ales and ciders will be present for the festival, with a big ol’ tacky Eurovision theme. This is just an excuse for me to dress up and attempt my best Terry Wogan impression, prancing around in a gold sequin suit, before falling face first in a gigantic pool of beer, but what do you care? You still get an awesome range of beers and ciders to choose from. Furthermore, with late licence, food and games throughout the weekend, plus the Eurovision screened live, you’d be a very silly billy to miss out.
In other fantastic news, food is soon to be re-launched by Natz, so expect some tasty servings and delicious updates to come very soon.
In sneaking suspicion news, I think Adelle may attack the garden with a fuck-ton of fairy lights to spruce up the place.
He is settled into student life in Sheffield. This really means he has lowered his standards rather somewhat, with a terrible taste in music and clothing. Miraculously, he still has a palate for beer, though I don’t know how long that will last, and whether it can stand many more shitty ‘student promo’ drinks.
Meh, that’ll do for now
