Mauldons Black Adder for me, very hard to get hold of in Lincolnshire though. First tasted it at the fat cat in Norwich years back.

It's Theakston's Old Peculier - thus proving that it isn't only aviation enthusiasts who haven't mastered the art of spelling correctly...though I exclude boff180 from that observation...

I'm a real ale man - very fond of the St Austell's stuff a the moment, as well as most ales from Masham. When it comes to lager, particularly the domestic American brands, I'm in agreement with Eric Idle... drinking them is like making love in a canoe...

For me Adnams, Otter, Doom bar any of them will do. Before they shut it down i worked for 25 years at Eldridge Pope in dorchester always did like Hardy's (ipa) at the time Thomas Hardy ale was the strongest beer in the uk did not take many to have to hide somewhere quiet :ninja:

Yes! I bought some of this from 'Le Palais de la Bière' in Boulogne over the summer. Their cherry flavoured one was rather good and belied its volume!

Real Ale,The joy of which is always trying new beers. This evening I had Salopian Orkney , superb! and Wolf brewer - Granny wouldn't like it, excellent but not really my palette so I finished with another pint of Orkney.
Favorite brewery at the moment is Goddards,Isle of Wight who do a range with every one top of the class.

If you're into beer book yourself a cheap weekend in Brussels. Fantastic beer, fantastic bars and one of the great aviation museums. Who else has a Caravelle hanging from the ceiling

From the west country here, so more of a Cider man than Beer. Can't remember most of them as I get whatever real cider our local pub has on tap that week...almost all are delicious though, and much better than that Magners rubbish :P (OK...it has its place!)

This is one of my favourite Perrys at the moment.....very happy when the local get this on tap once or twice a year!

Favourite spirit is Jagermeister...especially when mixed with apple juice. perfect in the winter!

Cider was a favorite when I lived down in Bristol..every few weeks would pop down to a farm locally and pick up one of their evil brews in plastic containers with sediment at the bottom

Would certainly endorse that !!...feel like another Eurostar to the museum is overdue (and the beer in the museum cafe is cheap (or was) as well)

Well I am hoping that the 40 pints of homebrew I have slowly brewing in the kitchen is going to be my favoourite pint soon :grin: but failing that;
Most Otter ales are great (Beautiful Daze a favourite in the summer)
Teignworthy Reel Ale a great session beer,
Doom Bar and Skinner's BEtty Stogs from Cornwall,
Bay's Brewery from Torquay do a lovely one called Devon Dumpling
Back Beach from Red Rock brewery
Jail Ale from Princetown in the heart of Dartmoor is lovely too.
To be honest too many to mention!

I think a trip to a nice country pub is in order later!!

I attempted my own home brew a few years ago and it was pretty volatile stuff. It could strip the fur off a weasel at ten paces, and we always had to open the bottles outside as it would erupt like a volcano every time you took the lid off. I named it asbo ale.

My mate had an (empty) bottle of that in this room. They sell it in a German "Brauhaus" round the corner from me - reckon I'll have to try it sometime!

In terms of favourite pints, being a student, it's often the cheapest - Tennnent's, Carling, Carlsberg.

But if money was no object I would settle for a pint of Tiger, Coors or Birra Moretti.

A friend also introduced me to John Smith's tops which was pretty good.

Also tried a pint of William Wallace at New Year, not something I will start drinking regularly - not yet anyway!

Thomas Hardy ale was the strongest beer in the uk did not take many to have to hide somewhere quiet

I had that once and chucked up pretty quickly - it must have bounced. (It was about 12% - makes Special Brew seem nice). I might have to put that down in the "worst drink" thread.

Having just moved to an area that has many local ales I have recently been enjoying Buckham Off Hoppy Beer and Silent Slasher. The less attractive sounding "Piddle in a Bottle" is also quite nice but you can't help but be put off by the name!! Plenty of home made Scrumpy here too but the problem is finding one that doesn't taste like vinegar and doesn't leave you in a coma (or does if you so wish) :wink:
