10 Reasons to drink Real Ale…. worth reading.
JulianA, whereabouts are you? Corsham maybe? (Two Pigs?)
Stig’s stuff is still pretty local, which I like. He took it over from mad, mad Tony Bunce (Was called Bunces) and kept the tradition going, which is superb.
Also, his genius with Sign of Spring….! Green beer! I men, if you saw it on sale, you’d buy a pint just to try, wouldn’t you? It helps that it’s lovely too!

Discovered this wee place yesterday on the way back from my ride
I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. 300+ scottish ales and the most amazing service from the owner. Everything’s available to order through their website.Posted 9 years agoCountZeroMember
Mmmmm, totally agree with the OP. Had a couple of pints of Banks’s last night, and a couple of pints of Moles this afternoon, and my local has just got Hobgoblin on tap, but that will have to wait ’till I’m not driving! Second Riggwellter, Bath Ales Gem and Dark Hare, Blandford Fly…Posted 9 years ago
Flashy; I’m pretty sure WCA can vouch for the Union in Greenwich. He and I spent a few hours n there last summer. I think it’s possible he may have sampled most of what was on tap! My fave there is the Raspberry Wheat beer. Would probbly have the beer snobs screaming in horror, but it’s a delicious pint; very sharp, fruity and it’s probby at least a couple of yer 5 a day.
Some of it’s strong stuff, but don’t leave you feeling farked like pasteurised stuff. I don’t think several pints of their Berliner Oktoberfest Special did my mate Scottish Kev any favours, mind (something silly like 8%).
I do find organic beers tend to give me terrible wind, sometimes. And I’ve had a runny bottom, a few times, after some Real Ales. Not pleasant.Posted 9 years agosingletrackmindMember
Itchen Valley now, was at Hogs Back and Pilgrim before that. The kit at Itchen is pretty crappy, and breaks down a fair bit. We were in the most horrendous financial pickle, but due to magic of television, and Sir Gerry ( yes peter I will loan you £675,000 for that mews house in that there London )Robinson we are now minted.Posted 9 years ago
I will be doing my utmost to put as much of that cash into my wage packet as possible as the loonies who own the place will burn the rest to keep warm.
In due course well, end of April early May my ugly mug will be on C4 moaning and being miserable, arguementative and rude.
The working title is Gerrys Big Fix. 600+ companies applied to be on tele , with the chance of a load of dosh and some business advice. My advice was to get the cash nad get a Bulgarian hitman to kill the owner, then divvy what was left up between the staff, get stat redundancy and do one.
