It was an amazing week! Loads of ideas flowing around, creativity and productivity and good feels all round... so..... Anyone want some BEER?!
"Jack Black" is a one of a kind brewery literally five minutes walk away from home... (insert evil grin here). It is a family owned business, which was started in 2007. Quite "unsuspecting" on arrival, as it is located in the middle of an industrial area.... (yes, we live in the middle of an industrial area...lol) which is actually GREAT, because there is very little crime... (touches wood) lol
It is an exceptionally "laid back" establishment... with a very rustic casual feel about it, but don't let that you fool you... The service was BRILLIANT... (we literally had the SWEETEST waitress EVAAAR) and the food was OUTSTANDING! On arrival, it was time for drinks... (obviously! DUH!) lol Dave ordered the "Atlantic Vice" craft beer... I am no beer drinker - but I had a taste and this was actually really GOOD! Dave also experimented with a couple of their "Craft Sodas"
this one, I tasted (I forget the name) but it was SUPER tasty!!! It reminded me SO much of.... these.... lol - TRUE STORY
me, well - I ordered....Yip, I ordered WINE.... in a BREWERY! lol! Can't take me anywhere hey... hehehehe.... They even had stemless wine glasses WIN!!! lol
We decided to order a CHEESE BOARD PLATTER as a starter, but let it be said, this thing was HUGE!!! and I did not eat again for the evening! lol It was absolutely DIVINE though!
But apparently Dave still had some space left in his tummy.... lol So he went ahead and ordered THE BUTCHER BLOCK BURGER which consisted of, A freshly baked seeded bun, a 180g 100% beef homemade burger patty, basted with the Jack Black Signature BBQ sauce, topped with feta, tangy gherkins, streaky bacon and fresh rocket.... And although I did not taste this, (for fear of David growling at me lol) it REALLY did LOOK AMAZING!!!!
The entire place is a hive of energy and activity! Which really made for a great evening! There were people doing beer tastings... Everywhere you looked there was a hum of conversation and laughing... It really created the PERFECT "unwind atmosphere"
The best part of it, (for me anyway)was the live music! NOTHING beats live music!!! and these guys were amazing! They played such an AWESOME mix of music catering for ALL tastes, which was great, because EVERYONE was happy!!! lol ESPECIALLY ME!!!! lol - After they were done entertaining everyone, I took a few minutes to tell them about Steemit... These guys are SO awesome.... I can only HOPE that they receive the public attention they TRULY DO deserve! Such an incredibly talented group of individuals!
It was SUCH a fantastic evening, something that I REALLY needed! Although there is no dance floor there, I CREATED one! hahaha (as Jayne does) and not long after, many were showing off their moves lol - I really just let my hair down and it was GREAT! Say CHEEEEESE Jayne! lol (yeeeah, I look like a train wreck.... I know, ok! lol) but whoooo cares!!!!!.....
