Summer Blues, Introversion, and Stout Beer (not necessarily in that order!)

 

Just can’t shake this summer lassitude. Wish there was a beach nearby. Been dreaming about visiting a friend in Hawaii. And, still having a bunch of other really vivid dreams. Ho hum.

This week, in addition to laziness and despite my social ineptness, I’ve kinda been wanting a friend, or a sidekick. I’m sure it will pass, and I’ll be back to my usual introverted, loner self soon enough–no worries! *laugh*

I’m not much of a drinker (I prefer milkshakes–sorry, cows  :-(–or a nice cup of tea), but I do love a good stout/dark beer from time to time.

Disclaimer: The Chaos Fairy not remotely a beer expert at all. *laugh*

I have so many fond memories of pubs in England, Scotland, and Ireland that I associate stout with my travels overseas. Also, I’m not really a fan of IPAs, ales–they’re just too sweet or something, or just not rich enough?–(like I said, I’m not really a beer connoisseur!)

I love Guinness draught, of course, but haven’t tried the Guinness Extra Stout, surprisingly.

I looked and looked but couldn’t find any gluten-free stouts (of course!).

Any recommendations, in general, for stouts and other dark beers?

I love this one. Samuel Smith Imperial Stout

A list of “Best Imperial Stouts.”

For a well-rounded breakfast.

Whew. Time for a lazy summer nap (if only!).

    1. Only Montreal, Vancouver, and Victoria (high tea at the Empress LOL)…not enough places, in my opinion! I seriously considered (wishfully) moving to Newfoundland or Nova Scotia once upon a time.

  1. Did you miss Banff? Yes I am in love with Nova Scotia and I also considered moving there at one point. I am still trying to get to Newfoundland.

    I would highly recommend a visit to my hometown, Québec City. It is beautiful and like going to Europe without the jet lag…

    1. Nope didn’t go to Banff, had a pen pal that was working in Yellowknife…and for some reason wanted to visit (not because of pen pal, necessarily, just seemed..different? an adventure? I dunno why…LOL
