    Ilkley dinner ale is a very pleasant and refreshing beer. 3.3%

    B) OP wants to be able to have a few without getting completely legless.

    Why?

    C) getting completely legless is not big and it’s not clever. Just because it’s Christmas does not make it alright

    Yes it does.

    no it doesn’t

    What has the drink driving thread got to do with this? FFS!

    i’m back.

    I completely agree, local is a good thing: i’m in South Oxfordshire/Chilterns, so the local list is thus:

    Mr Chubbs
    IPA
    hoppit

    And yes, I’m not looking to get too wasted. I have kids, a limited amount of free time, when i want to be functional, capable of interacting with others or going for a ride/ doing stuff the day after.

    Downing chemically lagers, climbing lampposts with my pants on my head and coming on to my mates’ other halves, plus enduring morning after hangovers are a waste of that. Also, I have an amazing capability to guzzle beer at an unseemly rate, which is why i don’t want strong stuff. I want to quaff a-plenty and get pleasantly merry on nice ales.

    grow up

    think about it. if you’re that intent on getting rat-arsed and see it as a good thing, then I don’t want to be sharing the roads with you the day after.

    Why would I be driving the next day? πŸ™„

    Recommendations for Beer:
    Hobsons Best (3.8%)
    Hobsons twisted spire (circa 3.6%) but very tasty!
    Hobsons Mild (3.2% i think) really nice during winter
    Titanic Steerage (3.2% as well i think)
    All great session beers

    Recommendations for maximising fridge space:
    Beer does not want to be fridge temperature, we live in Britain, outside temperature is usually cool in December. Leave the beers in a box outside the back door… cellar would be ideal though.

    be alright going for a ride though, eh John? you won’t lose your licence for being drunk in charge or a bicycle. Stella!…. makes the trails come alive….. the next morning! I get the ops point though, you probably wouldn’t feel like a ride after a heavy sesh.
    If I’m doing a heavy sesh then I get special dispensation from wifey for her to look after kids in the morn while I have a sleep in/take it easy. And then repay it for her christmas do.

    Sensible points about drink driving, of course, but my real interest is that A) I don’t want to get shitfaced in 2 hours, and B)I have a burgeoning social calendar (I know!) with several events at mine and others to come.

    Out of the time off i have for Christmas, i don’t want to be feeling crappy, and there’s always the potential to spend a week over xmas in varying states of wastedness. This time of year, natural light is a premium, so hiding my head under a pillow with a methanol migrane seems a bit of a bad option.

    Just seen ‘chocolate sombrero’.

    I assume that is a double-entendre.

    Winston- πŸ˜€ Have you been stalking me over past Christmasses?

    Actually, I have a scar on my nose where i rode into a concrete drainage culvert after a whisky session….

    To add to the comedy, the bike in question was an old commuter, with similar amounts of rust to that one. I had a basket at the time though. 8)

    All beers around 5-6% should be session beers. And if they aren’t then you need to sort your sessions out πŸ˜›

    CFH- on to or onto?

    The former is still possibly a risk, the latter i hope i’m past, along with the days of “ET’s Heart”.

    Johnny, was more thinking of how it would read if the word was absent….

    Brew your own:-) perhaps a bit late for Christmas season now though.

    I brewed a light ale yesterday intended for Xmas – I can generally turn round brews in 3 weeks, from brew to drinking if they are light enough – 7 days ferment, 14 days maturing – bottles rather than kegs helps that. It’s my second Xmas batch, so I’ve already got 40 bottles of a dark beer as well.

    Thought that might be the crucial point… A mate once had a t-shirt with the slogan ‘I came on Eileen’. Ruined the song for me, that one…

    It is written, so i’m told, that any beer drunk in festive cheer must not have an ABV below 6%. it’s the law.

    This then allows you to engage in combat with your brother in law, thus removing one of the internal doors from it’s hinges.

    Round our way, York Brewery Guzzler.

    In Oxfordshire, down near the south coast, not a clue.

    Smirnoff and Pepsi max (loads of ice)

    Jesus tell me about this. NZ is the land of 7% hop bombing IPAs, trying to find a decent beer that you can sup away on for a long period without ending up offering to show everyone your elephant is quite hard. We brewed up a reasonably mellow but flavoursome IPA that was 3.7%, it had just enough body in it to carry the hops. 280 litres gone in 5 days (sold) so i think that will be done again although i have sold my brewery. I tend to stick to emersons bookbinder as its 3odd% and you can drink a lot of it.

    this is what I do most of the time now tbh. Beer makes me feel too bloated and full. Get drunk quicker on the vodka as well πŸ™‚
