Pink Fire Pointer 2013


Hey Bon Bons,
Recently I have made a few changes to my life. If you follow BVC regularly, you will know I change my hair colour more than most, so obviously one of the changes is my hair.
In the past month it has changed daily: blue, grey, pink, purple, yellow, orange, peach... even all of them at the same time.

Again, If you follow BVC, you will also know that I looooove piercing, so I decided to get my nose done again and also my smiley which I havent had before- and I like it alot.

I have also decided to take up skating this summer, obviously because miley looks so hot skating and pretty much everyone I know is a skater.

I have finally started an internship with Oh My Love London, a supercool east london clothing brand. I am having the best time taking street style photos, organising party guestlists and writing blog posts.

These are all photos from my instagram which I got a couple of weeks ago, so follow me and I will follow you back, @Renmccann

Have you guys got up to anything new recently?

Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA

Greetings from the left coast on this sunny and warm Sunday afternoon.  I've retreated to the Pinhead studios for some pinball and a wonderful IPA.  This Ruthless Rye IPA has the prerequisite hoppiness but also has the killer spiciness that the rye grain brings to beers.  This is Sierra Nevada's seasonal beer for the winter / spring so you might still be able to find it on your beer shoppe shelves.  If you do, don't pass it up - great stuff from the brewery that has defined "Craft Beer" since 1979.

Hype from the brewery ----->  Rugged and resilient

A review from the Big Lads ----- >  crisp hoppy bite


PS - check out the "mural" that I found at my local Beer Shoppe.  yes - entirely made of different crown caps from various breweries.  Quite a work of "art".

Ninkasi Renewale 2013 Extra Special Bitter

Well - it's gonna hit 90 degrees out here today - what happened to Spring?  Dang global warming is ruining everything....time for a brew on a hot summer day.  Grabbed a six pack of the Ninkasi Renewale ESB on my trip up to the Pacific Northwest a few weeks ago and I've cracked open the last of the lot this afternoon.  The beer pours a nice copper color with a small head.  Grassy hops - kinda smells like a nice New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.  Nice balance on this one, as is usual with the style.  The brewery is located in Eugene, Oregon and is named for Ninkasi, the Sumerian goddess of Brewing.  I've noticed that some of the Brewery's offerings are making it down to us here in Northern California - I need to try some more....

The ESB beer page at Ninkasi - Fruity esters come alive

The Not So Professional Beer Blog on the beer - Cheers to Ninkasi
