    Hello from Central Florida ... Just found this site while checking on some of my favorite beers from the UK.

    I'm an old man (Vietnam Vet), who played golf on a few of the mini-tours here in Florida. I love beer, especially imports. Looking forward to any and all information that I find here. Thanks!!

    Welcome to the BA site, Doc. You have found a great place to learn a lot about beer, and to talk about it as much as you'd like. Explore the site off the main menu to discover all of the features. If your focus is the imports, you may want to start by spending time in the International forums. Enjoy your time here.

    Welcome to the BA site and enjoy ! Good luck finding UK beers. They used to be much easier to find years ago.

    Thanks scream! Luckily, we have a high influx of British tourists in the area so the pubs, grocery stores and state beverage stores bring in some new and different brews to try and accommodate the Brits. I'll still be checking for those "others" that don't get publicized much.
