    Beer



    We haven't got a dedicated Beer thread to the best of my knowledge. I'm a fan of beer. So I thought I'd start a thread about it.

    One of the reasons is that I finally tried a bottle of Innis and Gunn last night. I know Wolf Hunting and DDW have spoken about it a fair bit. I was quite impressed actually - certainly better than the rest of the shitty lagers being served on tap (it was All Bar One in Brum - not my choice of pub but it was a mate's party).

    Looking forward to some BATHAMS next weekend. Not had any in a few weeks now.

    I think you should change it to 'Beer, Wine and Spirits'. There's more to the world than just beer!

    Wye Valley HPA is one of my all time favs, although Bathams is very hard to beat.

    They do a very nice pint of Wye Valley HPA at a pub not too far away from me. Doesn't beat Golden Glow, but I agree - very tasty.

    Enville Ginger and Craddocks Saxon Gold are my current two favourites. Most places that sell either of these tend ot have a decent selection of other fine ales to sample also.

    I quite like Craddocks actually. Their loyalty card is a good feature.

    I was in Chester for a couple of days this week. Ale-tastic and a beautiful city. Mostly micro-brew stuff that i can't remember names of, but well worth a visit.

    There is a public house in Ingoldmells called "The Countryman". In the restaurant they do excellent home cooked food. It also has its own brewery called "The Leila Cottage Brewery." The ale they produce is first class. My favourite is Lincolnshire Life, but there are other choices. I would recommend trying a glass of Leilas brew if in the area.

    Not overly impressed by Bathams, I'm more of a pale ale man myself.

    Glow obviously, Enville White and HPA are all good.

    I would have thought you'd love Bathams if you like Glow.

    I had my stag do in Chester. My best man got arrested for walking through the Ladies toilet wall and beating up two bouncers. He didn't know what he had been arrested for until he saw the CCTV later.

    That would have been Bathams Mild. Which is a mild.

    Bathams bitter isn't too dissimilar to Glow. Except a lot tastier.

    Alternatively, The Fulstow Brewery in Louth produce a first class array of ales. My personal favourite is, Northway IPA.

    No, definitely wasn't a mild. I'll have to try it when I'm next in the Western.

    If its on! The best place to try a Bathams is in a Bathams pub. There's a definite difference IMHO. This is a pint of Bathams - with steak pie, chips and mushy peas - in the Bull and Bladder. All that cost 5.05. I love that pub.

    Bathams is very similar to Glow and tastier for me. had a few on Friday in The Bell.

    I did the Wychwood brewery tour yesterday, very interesting and plenty of samples.

    That wasn't what I tried.

    I like a good pint of Banks' Bitter too.

    Railway Tavern, Aby. Great array of beers. Steve(Croxden Abbey) and myself have sampled some of their fine ales. Lancaster Red was interesting!!

    This was how my Gornal-Sedgley pub crawl started last week (cheers to Langdale for the suggested establisments)



    and this is how it ended - smiles, laughs with mates with a Sedgely Surprise in one hand, and a Ruby Red in the other



    You've got to love ale nights!
