Alcoholic adventures in Aotearoa. I may have posted some of these before, but here we go.

Celebrating the afternoon/evening before departure with some bubbly and a Shiraz.

I chose my Akubra Stylemaster in acorn fawn for the trip.

We wasted no time upon arrival. This time, the hat is a Bailey Toyo that I managed to transport in my suitcase without making it too wonky.
Monteith'ss Black...

Monteith's Breakers Low Carb IPA...

and a Mac's Green Beret IPA, my favourite of the day.

On our trip up north, Etsuko enjoyed the Mac's Magic Hour Hazy Pale Ale, while I had more Green Beret. Etsuko's hat is her Akubra Leisure Time in light sand.

More Green Beret IPA for me.

Thanks Jack.
It was a Christmas or birthday present from Etsuko several years back. For a long time, it got very little use, but I’ve managed to pull it out a little more regularly in the last couple of years.
Very nice gift Gary, especially if it is solid sterling silver or sterling silver plate. Etsuko has good tastes! I watch for them & my favs are hammertone or Art Deco flasks. Now that distillers have gone down from pint bottles to 250 & 300ml in the US I could use one From time to time.

Been posting my HH’ers of late somewhere else so I didn’t include my hat, but I was wearing a Worth-Walden in the mist & rain tonight. Drank a few new KC Bier Co German Dunkelbocks @ 10% ABV. Spice & dark fruit, bourbon, coffee beans & dark chocolate. I’m thinking this would be a good beer for bbq smoked Burnt Ends or bbq Smoked Brisket.

Tell me more about the Japanese Old Fashioned. How does it differ from a classic Old Fashioned?
Ha… somehow I knew I might be asked about that.. should have made better note :) I believe it was a regular old fashioned using a Japanese whiskey

actually…. From PF Chang website….

JAPANESE OLD FASHIONED
Mars Iwai 45 Japanese Whisky, bitters, pure cane sugar, smoky aromatics

was quite tasty indeed
