What beer is everyone drinking?
Looking for some tips for new beer to try… any recommendations?Posted 2 months ago
Obviously online retailers need to be decent.. I’ve been stung a couple of times in the past with mis-information.
I find it the perfect accompaniment to my afternoons spent shouting at busesPosted 2 months ago
in about a week, will be drinking my own – brewed with our own hops! 😋
might help a bit if you say what you like, the beer gamut is verrrrrrrrrrrry wide these days 😃
also whether you want craft/local (if so, where?) or are happy to drink macro-global-corporate-pissPosted 2 months ago

French fries at Greggs? Pasty crumbs surely.

It’ll soon be green hop season with these guys: https://www.cafflebrewery.co.uk/ One of my favourite beers from a cracking micro brewery in Pembrokeshire.Posted 2 months ago
I went back to visit my parents in Purbeck last week and treated myself to a case of Hattie Browns Dog on the Roof and CrowBlack
Very very very nice (for bottles). Unfortunately didn’t get time to have a pint or two in the Square though.

funnily enough, it’ll soon be green hop season with everyone 😂 (who’s doing it, of course – did mine at the weekend!)Posted 2 months ago
Was in Pembrokeshire last week, didn’t make it to Caffle but did get to the Bluestone brewery, was very impressed! They’re doing their GH this week.
Whatever is on offer in the supermarket on a Friday night.Posted 2 months ago
Giving a nice promo to a mate who also posts on here and repping his beers that are named after Tweed Valley trails:
That said, not just shilling for him, they’re also really nice beers. I’m normally more of a fan of darker stuff, but these are good lighter beers. Angry Sheep is a lovely lighter session lager, for a start…Posted 2 months ago
Vocation is pretty damn good.
Tiny Rebel produce a wide range of beers.
Green Duck Foam Party. Though in truth, anything from Green Duck is damn fine.Posted 2 months ago
Anything from Tempest Brewery.
The Mexicake is particularly nice at the moment.Posted 2 months ago
Vocation, Life & Death, 330ml can into a pint glass and topped up with Lemonade.Posted 2 months ago
Another recommendation for Three Acre Brewery as per Spannermonkey above. My local brewery and pub. A small cask of Hazy Pale for Autumn and Porter for the xmas holidays goes down well in our house.Posted 2 months ago
ACE Lager.Posted 2 months ago
Just back from pub. 2 x HPA and 2 x Purple Moose ElderflowerPosted 2 months ago
At home? Murk-Life Balance hazy IPA (Magic Rock)
From pump? HPA (Wye Valley)
*edit ^ Purple Moose Elderflower is a fine ale. Recently tried their Plum Porter because Elderflower not on. Ended up having 3 porters before personal besting (single-speed) the Mawddach Trail 😊 Amazing stuff and surprisingly moreish.

As massively unhip as I know it is, I’m currently enjoying a few tins of Abbot Ale. It makes a nice, rich, malty change from the ubiquity of pale/golden/IPA stuff that seems to be pretty much all you can get on draught these days.Posted 2 months ago
Does low alcohol count? Been drinking tins of Adnam’s Ghost Ship 0.5% like water this week. (That wasn’y a set up for some wag, btw 🙂)
Also tried a Guinness 0.0 recently – was pleasantly surprised after the second one hit the palate (the first seemed too sweet). By far the most full bodied zero alcohol drink I’ve ever tried. As far as ales go the Bristol Beer Factory low alcohol offering (Clear Head) has been the best by far IMO/EPosted 2 months ago
I’ll see if I can order that direct from Purple Moose, see how it compares to Titanic’s Plum PorterPosted 2 months ago
@binners see they just re-label that shite as hipster IPA and its all good in the hood.Posted 2 months ago
McEwans Champion.Posted 2 months ago
£1.49 at Adli or, oddly, £2.25 in Morrisons.
Mostly Double Joker mmmnn.Posted 2 months ago
I’ve been all over the Bellfield and cheddar ales lately. I’ve got coeliac disease so the fact that their gluten free is indistinguishable from normal beer is awesome, but also, it’s just really good beer. Got a case of crown and glory and a case of belfield’s 80 and daft days to work through
But also a load of gf stella, because sometimes you just want to have a barbeque and fight your neighbour.Posted 2 months ago

Mostly hazy AF
Sometimes fifty fifty if it’s been warm.
If I’m really pushing the boat out – a hazy guava
Had a heineken at a wedding the other week. Wish I hadn’t.Posted 2 months ago
Just moved house and the local Tesco stocks La Chouffe which is by far my fave Belgian beer. Had one tonight to celebrate the end of a tricky exam today.Posted 2 months ago
Augustiner… Obviously, because Munich.
Reutberger Hell because our street is named after the monastery there… It’s nice to drink and has a nice beer garden with a view of the alps.

Murk Life balance is nice. I usually buy a few at Kings Cross for the train ride home.Posted 2 months ago
Gower Gold : )-Posted 2 months ago
Ooh that is a lovely pintPosted 2 months ago
Fyne Ales Easy Trail and Work Bench.
I had a few cans of Hobgoblin Gold at the weekend – they went down well. (possibly a bit bland compared to some, but were quite easy drinking)Posted 2 months ago
