    New to the forum, but this sure seems like the best place to get a good answer.

    I'm interested in some of the best beers available in England (London, Leicester, Sheffield areas) to bring home for trade bait.

    Thoughts/Suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Since you are in Indiana, you might mention that you plan to bring some Zombie Dust (and other Three Floyds goodies) for a BA willing to beer your London beer guide.

    Don't look at it as a chance to collect trade bait. Why not go and drink in the pubs and enjoy the beers yourself as it is meant to be.

    What JMW said. However spending a morning at the Kernel and buying a few bottles to take back isn't a bad way to spend some time!

    Yep, Kernel (for pale ales) and nearby Partizan (their saisons). Beavertown too. When are you in London?

    Since you won't be able to get them again any time soon, bring back the ones you like the most for yourself and to share with friends. You should already have "trade bait" at home.

    Well, to be more specific, my wife is going to London on business. Otherwise, I surely would be enjoying the first hand experience.
