Times Quick Cryptic No 1439 by Tracy - I'm only here for the beer

I would say this is pretty much a classic straightforward QC from Tracy today. Nothing too difficult, I think, with plenty of easy ones to give you some checkers. You may need, though, to remember a Greek god, an ancient coin, a retro household appliance, a Scottish novelist and a bit of Welsh geography.... or trust to the wordplay. We are treated to a good range of clue types and some lovely surface readings, not least the semi-&lit 16A, my COD, although 9D was a close second. I was clearly on the wavelength today as I raced through this in 3:43. Thanks Tracy!  How did you all get on?
