Aass Brewery (Aass Bryggeri) is Norway's oldest brewery. Founded in 1834 in Drammen, Norway, the brewery's primary products are beer and aquavit. Warning - don't touch the aquavit :)))

Amelia, Thanks for the nice and vertical building, whic is unlike my x-brother in law who is most likely not vertical at the moment. As an aside, remember my that photo you took of my grandfather's house? Well, the wide entryway was so that the Beer Wagon could be brought out from the courtyard behind. So, beer my be in my history :))) Best regards. -Art

Dear Art, your brother in law may be suffering in his own way. And I see beer is in your history? As long as there isn't too much in your bloodstream it should be OK. It's interesting to know that the wide entry was for the beer wagon - best keep on it - advice to said brother in law :)))

Greetings, Amelia

BTW, was the spelling of "whic" a pun or just a slip of the "h"?

Art Anderson on May 8, 2009

Loose fingers on the keys, my dear, let the "h" run away. I am a glass away from being a tea totaler, because of pain watching my parents. I do enjoy a good pint of beer or a good glass of wine with a meal but you never find me in a bar. I feel pubs in the UK aren't like bars in the US, so I am usually more at home in them, especially if there is a quaint room upstairs to sleep in at the end of my drive. I think you understand. Best regards. -Art

Bass Buggery ~ what a name for a brewery and it is too late the warning ~ Aquavit and I first met up in Sweden many years ago ~ I was quite happy to leave it there though!! So Art's Brother in Law is not only traversing the North of England from West to East ~ he is merely on his way to Norway perhaps for the serious drinking to begin. I remember once being on the ferry from Tilbury to Gothenberg and being amazed at the antics of the Scandi ~ they were practically bathing in alcohol ~ tra la la, where as I was stuffing myself silly on the food!!

Ciao and Cheers ~ bottoms up and all that jazz

They had a field day with this name on one of the UK TV programmes apparently - who in their right mind would drink Aass beer? It isn't bad at all - we've tried it :))

And I haven't received Nick's comment, even though I know he has sent a great one!! Ass brygeri!

Nick Weall on May 8, 2009

oh Bass bugger it has disappeared ~ will it come back ~ who knows ~ Pano is going bonkers this evening xxx

Amelia Royan on May 8, 2009

Got it!! ;-)

What a shambles :))

Nick Weall on May 8, 2009

Do you notice (and I'm sure you have) how that black sloping roof is conveniently placed to catch the barrel rolling down off the wall!!


Amelia Royan on May 9, 2009

I didn't Nick, but now I do - personally I think the black car and the pick-up are in for a big surprise :)))

Nick Weall on May 9, 2009

Yes the pick up truck has ambitions beyond its Springs capacity and the black car will suffer collateral damage (as they say) I seem to remember a TV ad for XXXX Australian beer where a pick up truck got hopelessly over loaded with crates of beer ~ Maybe Art's brewery expert knows it.

Ciao nick

Cheers Jen
