- Best Pint?
Just remembered another nice beer anecdote – I was visiting a firm in Dublin that was trying to get our business. After being showed round and concluding the meeting the talk turned to the dinner and trip into Dublin that was planned. The owner told my colleague and I ‘I’ve had a word among the lads in the factory about who serves the best pint of Guinness in Dublin, and we’ve narrowed it down to five or six places. So you’ll have to make up your own mind on that’

I have a similar tale of actually being reduced to drinking beer for a change of clothes. It’s quite a long story, but suffice it to say Friday night was Society Ball (with all-night bar). By Sunday having not been home, and still wearing a dinner jacket and trousers, me and my mate were starting to ‘pen’ a bit.
Lo and behold, the pub we were due to meet up in had a ‘drink four pints of Guiness for a free T-shirt’ offer. Sometimes, god works in funny ways…………..Posted 7 years agoCoyoteMember
Capt’n the majority of Asahi is
ruinedbrewed in the EU.
For a great pint you need:
– 1 x hot summer evening
– 1 x room at the Turf Cutters Arms in East Boldre
– 2 hour blast round the New Forest on buff, sandy trails
– Nice pint of Ringwood Forty Niner

A few of these in the Stanton Arms, Stanton on Hine Heath, goes down well, still only £2.50 a pint too.
Best pint of beer I’ve ever had was a pint of Tim Taylor Landlord in the Crown Posada in Newcastle, I was about to have a second and the crowd I was with decided to go for a curry 🙁Posted 7 years agosingletrackmindMember

Rev James in a nice little pub near Brechfa after a horrible cold, wet ride a couple of years ago.Posted 7 years ago
More up to date. Salopian Breweries Lemon Dream, The Sabrina (River Severn cruise boat in Shrewsbury) last night at a good mates retirement do. And he’d paid for the barrel!
Are we really 3 pages in with no mention of a pint of Coniston Bluebird somewhere in the Lake District? King’s Arms in Hawkshead after a ride around Claife and Grizedale perhaps.
Although as a Lancastrian it pains me to admit it, as mentioned above a pint of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord somewhere in Yorkshire is usually pretty hard to beat.
