    I love this one: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/0/20330909

    About how weird Italian brewers are for putting clams and pomegranate in beer.

    Bitch please. I can get beers in Essex with mussels, oysters, chestnuts, chocolate and orange in.

    somewhat disappointed with the Ampleforth offering, hopefully it will improve when they finally get to brew at the Abbey.

    I live just a few miles away from the abbey, so was quite excited last year when I heard that they would be brewing abbey beer. Having tried it only recently I was distinctly unimpressed - it imitates it's more famous Belgian counterparts but doesn't taste anything like as good. I have a few more bottles; perhaps it will improve with age.

    As reprob8 mentions above, once they make a move to brew at the abbey things might get better....
