I like Barmouth, we used to rent a place in Llwyngwril and take the ferry across the Mawddach.

We head (or will head) much further down the coast now towards Llanduddoch (St, Dogmaels) but the little hotel we used to stay in has been ripped apart by a property developer.

Looks a nice place, you should have parked your Kuga in the background for the beer shot.

I like the Italian beers but I find that particular brew very gassy, I prefer the Peroni (y)

I am not keen on Italian beers. A lot of the bars/restaurant now near me are independent of the national breweries which is a little annoying for me as they tend to buy in beers I don't like. However I have found that most German or Austrian brews are acceptable to my choosy palette.

Black Dragon cider and Penderyn Welsh single malt Whiskey :)
Obviously, not a drop while driving.

Your palate (palettes are for paints;) ) does not lie.

'Reinheitsgebot' (or the German Beer Purity Law) 1516 stipulates that German beer can only be brewed using four ingredients: water, malt, hops and yeast. No additives or preservatives just better quality ingredients. I got spoilt when regularly visiting Germany and loved Uerige Doppel Sticke which is a strong Altbier (old beer) akin to a light barley wine.

Haha, that will teach me to "edit" using Microsoft paint. At least I didn't spell it as pallet......and well spotted.

Thankfully, Penderyn makes it 'over the bridge' and two local supermarkets stock it but Black Dragon and the even nicer Gwynt y Ddraig Gold Medal don't make it this far. You can buy it mail order but the shipping costs are steep.

I won't be thinking about booking any trips abroad for a while. It's my 60th next month and I did have some plans for somewhere exotic or something different.

The last year has been an absolute swine if you were planning to celebrate.
Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Holiday, trip to see Bryn Terfel, celebration family meal - all cancelled due to lockdown.
Christmas - spent in isolation in hospital due to spinal virus
New Year - do.
65th birthday - do.

So far, 2021, even with all the crap that's going on, is a whole lot better.
