ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND – Home once more. Following an uneventful return trip from Sweden, I’m back at the helm of Capital & Conflict. I hope Nathan Tipping and Will Dahl have been keeping you entertained in my absence – I know I’ve been enjoying their notes.
The weather here is as awful as it is familiar – a situation made worse for Aberdonians by the fact that all the pubs and bars are only allowed to sell booze outside.
Luckily for me, the beer I was hankering for on my journey home isn’t on sale in pubs and bars – not yet, anyhow. And if you move fast, you can get your hands on some too…
I wrote earlier this month about Quantitative Ease, the beer I’ve been working on with a Capital & Conflict reader (Sixty beers for ₿0.01147188 – 2 December).
I’m very happy to announce that as of this morning, it is now available on the Cheddar Ales website – click here to get your hands on some while stocks last. Only a small batch has been made and there ain’t much of it out there, so if you want a case of this stuff (limited to one per customer), you’ll need to act fast. And with any luck, you’ll be quaffing one by Friday…
Having worked on this brew for some time with Cheddar Ales, I was looking forward to finally giving it a try upon my return to Aberdeen (posting booze to Stockholm was fraught with problems). I knew it’d taste good as I’ve had many of Cheddar’s fine beers in the past (they know what they’re doing) – but even I was surprised with how well this has turned out.
Strong but not heavy, and with a sharp citrusy edge: it’s everything I hoped for and more. I am marking my own homework to a degree here – but I’m genuinely very happy with this brew and if you like IPA, I think you’ll like it too.
Full disclosure: neither myself nor Southbank are earning any revenue from this – if you buy the beer, your money is going solely towards a great brewery going through trying times.
If you do take the wise decision to buy yourself some of this amber nectar, I’d love to know your thoughts, experiences, and suggestions for potential future brews: [email protected].
It’ll be a short note from me today as I’m still getting up-to-speed with what’s been going on in the market and the broader world over the past week (I like to take a break from the news cycles and whirring numbers when I can to stop me from going loopy).
But something tells me we’ll be looking at gold in the days to come. For despite my attempts to stay away from the market…
…my good friend and colleague Nickolai just won’t stop talking about “The Great Bullion Famine of 2021”.
All the best,
Editor, Capital & Conflict
