Enjoyed a couple of pints of Cooler Shaker - an "IPA milkshake" from Hebden Bridge's Vocation Brewery in the legendary Scarbrough Taps this afternoon.

Their website describes it as
Shake things up with this creamy IPA, brewed with lactose for a full-bodied and milky texture. Passionfruit and Mamey Sapote balance the sweetness of the lactose and give this brew an exotic finish

I got one to try given the description and it was so nice I had to have another.
It really is rather good.
This is also available in Tesco - although at £3 for a 440ml can I'll stick to drinking it in the pub.

I couldn't find an 11% Supreme Court Stout to celebrate with so I made do with an Indigo Tie-die Wolf T-shirt (Verdant and Temescal). It's a glorious one too, aniseed hints (though I gather it's cardamom) at the front and a lingering impression of having just swallowed a port.

Who knew that if you put pecan, peanuts and cocoanut together with cacao nibs and bunged then into an imperial stout it would taste like dark chocolate and almonds? Lush, me? No, the beer! Gipsy Hill/Hawkshead collaboration.

Went to Huddersfield for a change...thanks to @MossCommuter for pub recommendations.

I didn't drink this but the name has taught me a new word

But I did have a couple of these and delish they were. Vocation is in Hebden Bridge and I drink their Life and Death a lot. This was even better

And a night out wouldn't be complete without something weird happening..we ended up upstairs in the pub function room dancing to Northern Soul classics with a bunch of old skool Huddersfield "keep the faith" types.

Talking of Northern Monk, I've got a Paper, Rock, Scissors on the go - it's a DIPA collaboration with Siren which I'm drinking at room temperature because there's no room in the fridge. It's super intense unchilled.

And I just had another Siren collaboration, this time with Copenhagen brewers Broaden & Build. Marginal Grains. They say they've used foraged spices but I know that they've been foraging in a local farmer's fennel field. Nice and aromatic though
