Radley Bag v New Brewery

Something strange happened yesterday. A chance meeting presented an opportunity on the brewing front.

Not that that's stange in itself. But having run the idea of some shiny new brewing equipment past the wife, I expected a full frontal verbal explosion. What I actually got was, 'if you like it and it's what you need, why not get it?'

I then explained that such things were quite expensive. 'I dare say' came the reply. 'I know your kegs aren't cheap, so the actual brew gear must be really expensive. About a couple of grand?'

In fact, it was much less than a couple of grand. I now dared to think she might actually have meant what she said.

'You'd be alright with that then?'

'If it means I can have a new Radley Bag, then yes'.

WTF is a Radley Bag? How expensive can a bag be. Whatever, it can't look as good as this, surely.


  1. Radley bags are those bags that have the terrier dogs on. Not my thing but a lot of woman love them! And yes, they are expensive.

  2. Hmmm, brewing equipment or a Radley bag, I know which I'd choose.

  3. That is so funny. I have to say I would be torn between the bag or the brewing kit.
