Fábrica de Cervexa Bandua

Hace una semana me comentaba un amigo que había visto en las redes sociales que abría en la avenida do Porto 22, Sada (a unos 12 km de A Coruña) una fábrica de cerveza artesana llamada Bandua, llamada así por el dios galaico de la guerra de mismo nombre.
Este proyecto lo llevan acabo dos amigos de la localidad sadense Fernando y Luis, ambos de poco más de cuarenta. Fernando tenía una empresa familiar de construcción que por desgracia con los tiempos que corren tuvo que cerrar. Luis es aparejador y entre ambos después de dos años, algunos cursos, probar recetas y en más de una ocasión querer tirar todo por la borda abren las puertas desta pequeña fábrica con mucha ilusión.

Ahora mismo tienen 3 tipos de cerveza a la venta, de las cuales tuvimos el placer de probarlas todas.
La primera es Karnix llamada así por un instrumento de viento de la Edad del Hierro Celta, desde 300 a. C. a 500 d. C. Era una especie de trompeta de bronce, suspendida verticalmente y con la campana en forma de cabeza de jabalí. Se utilizó en la guerra, probablemente para incitar a las tropas a la batalla e intimidar a los enemigos. Esta cerveza es una American Pale Ale con un color oscuro, media carbonatación y con ese toque de lúpulos americanos, pero fácil de beber, que contiene 5,2 grados de alcohol.
Tyr llamada así por el dios de la guerra en la mitología nórdica, descrito como el Hombre de una Sola Mano.
Esta witbier de Malta de cebadas y trigo tiene ese toque turbio y amarillo, contiene 5,1 grados y entra perfectamente para cualquiera ocasión gracias a su sabor poco amargo y refrescante.
Trespés recibe su nombre por los tres pies (tres pés en gallego) de las antiguas lareiras.
Una cerveza Ale tipo ingles con cuatro maltas y dos lúpulos ingleses, además de cilantro. Las maltas son pale ale, crystal, special B y caragold.
Para Carnaval tienen previsto sacar a la venta una cerveza negra que lleva regaliz.
Muchas gracias a Fernando por el trato recibido, estuvimos charlando durante bastante tiempo tomando estas cervezas en la zona de degustación, pero también tuve la ocasión de ver las instalaciones de Bandua, donde hay diferenciadas varias zonas como la recepción de materias primas, el almacén, la zona de cocción, la sala de fermentación y envasado.
Las cervezas Bandua podéis encontrarlas en diferentes locales de Sada como por ejemplo en El Canalla, y próximamente en Betanzos, A Coruña… Además también podéis comprar sus cervezas allí mismo para llevar a casa, si no esta abierto tocáis el timbre y os atenderán encantados. Mucha suerte para Fernando y Luis en su aventura.

La entrega (The Drop) (2014)

438480Hay varias razones para ver esta película, una el papelón del amigo Tom Hardy que lo borda, la segunda razón es por Dennis Lehane, escritor de varias novelas llevadas al cine Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone y Shutter Island. Lehane es el guionista de esta película y anteriormente también de varios capítulos de la gran The Wire y del capítulo “4.12 Resignation” de Boardwalk Empire. Y la tercera por que es la última película que rodó el fallecido James Gandolfini, recordado por muchos de nosotros por su gran papel en la serie estadounidense Los Soprano. Creo que son razones suficientes para perder 106 minutos de nuestras vidas. El film esta dirigido por Michael Roskam y también cuenta con la actriz Noomi Rapace en su reparto.

Bob es camarero en un pub donde la mafia chechena cobra sus apuestas.Una mujer, un cachorro de pitbull, un loco, un primo y una conspiración hacen que estés atento a este thiller algo lento pero de gran calidad, te aseguro que no te dejará indiferente.

Si estáis pensando ¿Qué pelicula puedo ver?, pues aquí tenéis esta apuesta con sus tres grandes razones. Espero que la disfrutéis.

“Nadie te ve venir, ¿verdad Bob?”

Sierra Desings Mountain Parka 60/40

1968, Oakland, California. Sierra Desings lanza al mercado un nuevo concepto de chaqueta outdoor. Recibe el nombre de Mountain Parka 60/40.

$_3-13

1978, llega a los cines The Deer Hunter, protagonizada por Robert de Niro y Meryl Streep. El actor luce una Sierra Desings, desde ese momento nuestra chaqueta se convierte en un icono.

tumblr_me7zinW1n51r5dg58

2014, un servidor se hace con una de estas míticas parkas.
Han pasado casi 45 años, y la entonces novedosa propuesta, sigue igual de vigente como el primer día.

$_3-8

¿Cuál es su secreto? Muy fácil. Un diseño sencillo y atemporal, calidad de materiales, funcionalidad y sobretodo, comodidad.
Una chaqueta tan válida para dar un paseo por la montaña como para callejear por vuestra ciudad. Veamos algunos detalles.

$_3-10

Cuenta con cuatro bolsillos delanteros con cierre de velcro, más dos inferiores de corte, los típicos para meter las manos. Cierre de cremallera, gruesa por cierto, algo de agradecer ya que algunas chaquetas creo que pecan de cremalleras demasiado finas para este tipo de prendas. Además tiene botones de clip, con el logo de la marca en cada uno, detalle que en versiones anteriores no tenía. Tanto la capucha como la cintura son ajustables mediante cordones. Los puños también se pueden ajustar mediante velcro. En la espalda también encontramos un bolsillo vertical con cremallera. Tiene forro interior, aunque solo de la mitad de la chaqueta hacía arriba y en las mangas. Esto hace que podamos considerarla una chaqueta de invierno, aunque creo que se nos quedará corta en las zonas más frías de la península o en aquellos días más extremos del invierno, pero para una ciudad como Barcelona, es una parka ideal.

$_3-9

Y ahora veamos su mayor problema, y es que Sierra Desings apenas cuenta con distribución en Europa, por lo que tendremos que perder algo de tiempo delante de la pantalla del ordenador si queremos hacernos con una. Y habrá que tener en cuenta que si nos la mandan desde el otro lado del charco, además de los gastos de envío, tendremos que pagar aranceles. Yo en este caso, la compré a través de EBay, por unos 150€, a los que tuve que sumar un total de casi 50€ entre gastos y aduanas, unos 200€, que si bien no es una ganga, me parece un precio más que razonable para esta mítica parka fabricada en USA.
Por último deciros, que son varias marcas las que cuentan con una versión de esta chaqueta hecha de algodón en un 60% y un 40% de nylon, de ahí su nombre de Mountain Parka 60/40, aunque esta tiene el plus de ser la pionera y la utilizada por el gran De Niro en la película antes citada.
Una gran prenda que nunca pasa de moda.
Disfrutarla!

O Galiñeiro

Hace varias semanas tuve la ocasión de visitar O Galiñeiro un restaurante situado en  la Plaza Galicia 2, A Coruña. He leído criticas de todo tipo sobre este establecimiento, buenas, regulares y malas, pero soy una persona que me guio de lo que veo y en este caso también de lo que pruebo, por lo que personalmente mi opinión hacia este local es favorable. El servicio fue rápido, pero quiero destacar que era una hora temprana y aún había pocas mesas ocupadas.

La especialidad son sus productos naturales de granja, como pollo o huevos, aunque en su carta podemos encontrar tostas, croquetas, setas, ensaladas, pasta, pescados y carnes. Los platos que probamos fueron sepia con huevos, una tosta de foie con cebolla caramelizada y un gran pollo tomatero que me metí entre pecho y espalda. Todo estaba bueno.

El local esta situado en la zona centro de la ciudad, cuanta con dos partes, una zona donde está situado el bar y poder tomar unos pintxos, y otra para el restaurante con bastantes mesas.

Colin Blaney interview (English version)

528782_479111702146752_1155737445_nThis time we interviewed the “Top Boy” Colin Blaney, from here acknowledge the time you’ve taken to this interview.

Grafters, Hotshot, Undesirables and the upcoming film adaptation of Grafters. From all of this, what is it that makes you feel prouder?

 It has to be Grafters see I had a plan which was simple write a page every day so then after 12mths I’d have enough for a book, anyway wasn’t going to work out that simple as it took 5 yrs but still saying that my last two books have only took one year and it I did a page every day so mayb others who want to try writing may take my tip and pen a page daily. The most satisfied feeling from the last 13 yrs being involved in writing has to be the feeling when seeing my 1st pages in the book Red Army Years! I must of read them over and over again for weeks then it hit home fuck me if its good enough for that book why not just write my own and the rest is history.

 To the local people, the Spanish who did not read your books, and you want to show them that they will not disappoint them, explain to them, briefly, their plot.

 To people who have never read any of my books i´d have to say they are football related with true storys about the Thugs, Fighting, Fashion;s, Pickpocketing, Prison and True compelling sex stories.

letter

We know, you met your ex-wife when you were in prison in Germany, because she worked there as a prison warden (as you tell it in The Undesirables). Can you tell our readers any story that is not so well known of your stay in prison?

 I wrote in the Grafters book how I meet Jana at a beer festival, that’s not true at all, see she worked high up in the prison system in charge of the Aulander group meetings in the prison, which were to try and get us all the Aulander to mix and speak about our problems with other races , example mine was the Turks who i hated with passion still do ,, but I had big problems with the stinking fuckers as my cell mate was Greek and they all wanted to beat the shite out of him daily,, so i did finally speak my feelings on the group meeting and in the end Kosta made a huge Greek salad every Friday and I made huge bowl of English chips the Turks made kebabs so we’d all sit down eat well and play backgammon and things improved not as many fights etc so, Janna was impressed and that’s how I got into her knickers. She lost her job because of me but still married me in the jail and waited 18mths for me to get free,, after I was released we lived to-gether 7 years I still love her to death but its well over, around the year 2,000 I lost my driving job because of drink and soon after I then needed to start getting help coming off drink took me at least 7 years been sober now many years and that’s why I write so much to keep away from the demon drink.

btht

You had an intense life: alcohol, theft, drug trafficking, being a hooligan, stay in prison…Do you regret anything?

 I have to say the life on the road was full of drink drugs and football thugs, it meant illness would come to us all and many of the Grafters ended up 6feet under under, or locked up for long terms im very lucky to have made it to my late 50’s so to regret any of the past times with the Jibbers would be like spitting on my friends graves, saying that I did have a great chance to go grafting in America and turned it down mayb that would have been the closest to a regret.

 Currently, you write, you appear on TV, etc. Would you exchange your youth for what you are doing now?

 Nowdays I film at the Man Uniteds fanzone better know as the warehouse project, you can see my films via Red Square’s website Link here mayb??? and I also work for the new clothing company Your Own maybe a link here ???, were just designing and range of football clothing, with Inter-City Jibbers, Hot Shot, Undesirables and Grafters thymes or logos etc.

 What was the best fight you got involved during your years of hooligan?

 The 2 biggest mob fight’s I was ever involved have to be Cardiff in 75 and Feyenoord 1997.

1st was when the Red Army took it to Cardiff and believe you me every true Welsh Hooligan made there way to the stadium looking for aggro even if they hated Cardiff people and its supporters, still it meant fuck all as it was time for the Taffs to team up, 2hrs before the game we marched up to the ground about 1,500 of us boot-boys, skinheads and Barmies, see the new look was baggy pants, polo necks sported with long hair and hairy side-burns! a coolio look at that time, yet when we came to clash with a Cardiffs mob outside the ground they all looked like they’d just come from working down the coal pits and building sites,, we destroyed them and the pics were plastered all over the papers next day ( u can get these pics of net),, inside the stadium united away support was about 10,000 after the game in went wild in the streets mob fights all the way back to town centre and we gave them welsh sheep- shaggers the biggest shock of there lives kicking the shite out of them, it was even reported how the English Bulldogs had taken over the valleys!

1997 Man utds Men in Black, The Inter-City Jibbers and the Young Munich’s all meet the night before the game in Amsterdam and made arrangements to get the double decker train to Rotterdam about 3 in the afternoon, it stopped few times and picked up couple of Dutch thugs who hated Feyenoord and took us the back way out the train st and round the back streets that lead out to 2 main pubs that well full of Feyenoord fans all singing and in merry moods ,, well they say Utds mob done more damage that day in ten mints than any other Dutch firm have done in ten years, we also won the game in style and had a great night out back in Amsterdam paying the African late night hookers all in false English pounds, there was at least 300 lads all needing to get there Hot Rods polished happy days Mufc on Tour!

What can you tell us about Omega operation? Is it anything that only affected to your neighbours Citizens, or indirectly splashed to the rest of firms of UK?

 After Utd and West ham had the infamous fight on the Beatrix ferry high seas ferry going over the water to Holland there seemed to be a real effort from Maggie and the government for the next few years to stamp out the innercore of most football firms, the Operation Omega with Man Citys lads was maybe along with the headhunters from Chelsea the only court cases of note that gave out prison sentences, the Mars operation against uniteds firm was a joke, the CID undercover wanted to come in court wearing balaclava’s the Judge said ur not turning my court into a Pantomime and it soon collapsed.

 Following with your city rivals they think the Red Army only earned them in number. What is your opinion about the Guvnors?

 Man-Citys Guvs came good in the mid 80’s just when uniteds lads all got offside after the west ham ferry fight, see many united lads did end up in crown court and some got jail, like my mates Brunsie he got 8yrs just for grabbing a megaphone, then sang a short united song and then shouted to the lads” lets give it west ham”

So then from 86 to 90 Citys guvs had a grip on the town suppose the acid rave thing from 88 into the 90’s had a big effect on uniteds firm, when they regrouped in 91 and joined up with the younger utds lads they became the MEB ruthless as many were now early 40’s and running crime gangs, but truth is that lasted till 2,000 and its now very very rare to get the firms clashing even with the help from rivals phones and internet etc.

 This blog is focused on the casual culture. You were one of the people who lived its beginnings in Manchester. How did it start? Was fast the transformation of the aesthetic in the stands?

 The fashion thing started with Fred Perrys then we had our 1st travel away to France V Saint Ettienne 77 we came back with lacoste and soon was back on the rob with England playing Luxemburg were we found top quality lois jeans and jumbo cords, then every trip abroad we’d just keep finding better lables, Armarni, Burberry, Hugo Boss Paul-shark etc

 The good thing of English Cup is that offers the possibility of confrontation among teams from different categories. Could you talk about any firm from lower categories that was characterized for making things difficult to firms of teams much bigger?

 When u talk about a team from the lower division who´s a hand full its got to be Millwall every time, even my gran=dad told me about the time ? 20’s I think when utd had to play at the Old Den in millwall last game of season, its was a playoff who lost went down to the 2nd div united won but the 1,000 uniteds supprters were given a hard time, they are without a doubt mental I went in the 2nd div 74 or 75??? And I remember being shocked to see Millwalls main thugs in the late 30;s we were all teens and they kicked the shite out of any one who was sussed out as a Manc on the way back to the tube.

 In the trips around Europe, when did the organized firms begin to face up to you? In what countries did you find more opposition

 When it comes to Firms being organized from other countries I suppose it had to happen , mayb us Mancs were surprised it took so long but saying that when we went to Juve in the mid 80’s they and Roma had a big names and we clashed with Roma home and away many polish and german firms are big time nowdays,, also Ajax they came to Utd few years ago with home made bomb’s and thrown one at the police, and soon after the other bomb went into a bar full of United (u can get the article from the Manchester evening news) and caused somert like 30,000 worth of damage all the lads hair clothes and faces were burnt bad.

Even Feynoord who were only seen as dangerous on their own patch now travel away well-organized with top boys!

Of clothing brands of the beginnings of casual culture, what was the brand everybody wanted to get it? What clothing brands do you usually wear?

When it came to the casual scene on at the football and in the clubs etc evn through it started 78 onwards the hey days were from 82 to 88 when it peaked,, then it went dead as the Ecstasy and big baggie clothes were needed because of the heat and sweating everyone went through. Aslo the acid ideas were all printed on bootleg t shirts, the truth is it all went potty or mad etc till the dark clothing came in which had a few purposes with the Man utd lads, !st when you got back from away games late sat nites it was hard to get in clubs etc unless you looked smart and the lads dark clothing worked a treat so in big numbers they´d all get in the same clubs, the main clobber was Gio Goi, Stone island and North-face always dark coulors, its true the Men in Black knew when they mobbed and went hunting the other firms pack, it was very intermediating for the other firms when confronted by the MEB to see the inner-core of Uniteds crew all in slick or smooth etc? black clothing, also very hard for the police to pick out the main thugs after the damage had been done,, time and time again they done almost every firm they came up against for 4 to 5 yrs, but nowadays it´s only going to happen evry other year when Utd meet Liverpool or Man city,,, both sets try their best to get at each other even if its miles way from the stadiums on empty car parks etc and truefully its very rare there get away with it , Yet saying that only few weeks ago United’s Red Rats took it to City’s lads in there own back yard and gave a decent account of themselves being out-numbered and having to get right up to citys main pub with out police on there case anyway you can all see it on you tube just type in Man City v Man Utd fighting 2014.

Mufc all Day!
