Well, it has been a bit of a drought post-wise at the Brewhouse website this year, although in my defense we have been living, working and traveling Scotland and Britain a lot, leaving not much time for the site here.

Soon the Brewhouse will be embarking on wider (and more exotic) adventures to India and Nepal before heading back to good old Melbourne, Australia for Christmas and a scorching summer. I would say that posts will probably be a bit ‘few-and-far-between’ during this time……but, really, all things considered for 2009, it won’t really be much different!

But, stick with me as there will be many tales to tell during (if possible) and after the travels and many more adventures in brewing after sampling ( :-D ) many many magnificent ‘hand-pulled’ freshly brewed draught ales - from light wheat brews through to midnight dark stouts - , a number of brewery and distillery tours, one party litterally IN the Stewart Brewery ,situated in Edinburgh’s southern outlying village of Loanhead, for their 5th year in business celebrations (happened upon that one completely by chance one Friday afternoon after work whilst returning an empty cask and tap equipment to the brewery after a party in our Edinburgh flat the week before), and racking the brains of pub owners, brewery workers, master brewers, distillers, cellarmen and other assorted beer and whisky affectionardo’s for tips, methods and any other information I could get hold of and possibly put to use in my future brewing exploits.

So, bearing this in mind, i will endeavour to cram as much as possible onto the site before we officially head off on our further adventures.

Cheers and good brewing.
