Thwaites Yule Love It. I do love it, oh so very, very much.....
If anyone is in doubt wether your beer is Camden or Weird Beard
if the beer is pasteurised,over fizzy, force carbonated, barely better than macro, over priced for what it is
it's Camden Town Brewery
Now as much as the whole Weird Beard hipster element quirky/zany skull designy thing gets on my tits
their brews are spot on and the bottle conditioning adds real flavour depth and makes a fantastic ale.
Well that is a lot of beer talk
lets do some drinking
Innes & Gunn Bourbon Stout
St Peter's Christmas Tits. I mean Christmas Ale.
Is there any truth behind the whole Russian Imperial Stouts being first created for the Russian Imperial Court story?
The beer must have been around prior to it becoming popular in the court no?
No idea if it ever even was or it's just an idea perpetuated like that of the strong hoppy beer for British troops in India being the IPA.
perhaps excessive consumption of RIS was the reason behind Rasputin's state of mind and barmy behavior lol
It was not 'originally' created for the Russian court. The Russians of St Petersburg in general quite liked though. But there was a variation that was apparently brewed for the Empress. And it just would have been referred to as just 'Porter' at the time. The earliest use of 'Imperial' to describe porter likely occurred in the early 19th Century while 'Russian' likely wasn't added until the early 20th Century.
Are you saying they made it up as they went along?
Then again wasn't Special Brew originally made for Winston Churchill?
Yes it was. Churchill, the big lush that he was. And he had it in for miners as well.
Glad you spelt miners the correct way: wouldn't want people to think Winston had it in for minors!
I haven't reviewed Peroni: not that it's a regular tipple of mine. Just assumed I had years ago, I hadn't.
Can you buy single bottles or do you have to get 4 (or 6) in a nasty pack or whatever they call them?
I've seen it by the bottle Tesco in the past. Don't know if it's still sold that way though.
I drank it at the works do as there was a free bar and I had to try and dilute the rotating spirits I was rapidly consuming
Other than that I normally see it when dining out Italian with another option
the other option usually is out so it is oft Hobson's
BTW, had a Founders Curmudgeon Old Ale last night. Shockingly woeful.
Is the name a self fulfilling prophecy
well there has been a lot of talk of lacklustre lager
so let's crack open this Innis & Gunn Lager Beer
My first post, this is what I bought today. I am new to the 'beer scene'
Welcome aboard Matty. I see some nice stuff there to start. Haven't tried the Modus Operandi yet but I've heard good things.
Looks a great way to start
hope you will be either rating or reviewing them
Don't know if Id be ready to start giving proper reviews! Haha, but I'll rate them and give a few thoughts once I drink them (Saving them for the weekend probably).
Couple of new looking beers in M&S both Meantime, a Greenwich Black IPA (actually really hoppy and bitter, lovely stuff) and a smoked German bock which I haven't yet sampled.
The Greenwich Black IPA really does take the Supermarket bottled premium beer stakes up a notch
and is probably the best of that ilk, the smoked bock was so so though.
My local B&M Bargains has Huber (from Wisconsin) at 69 Pence for a 33cl bottle: only bought one though, just in case it's not too good.
Haven't had that in almost 30 years. Sort of get the impression you can barely give it away in the States.
OPened a bottle of Courage Best Bitter (99p B&Ms) slightly better than the can.
I picked up a single bottle from my local B&Ms for £1. Can't say I've noticed the regular Peroni in any of the supermarkets that I frequent. It looks like you were just in your local store though, so perhaps they aren't carrying it there....
Just opened an Anarchy Citra Star. Lovely beer
Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie
I've found a bottle of Belhaven wee Heavy hiding in the pantry
seems a fitting end to a tough day.
Hawkshead Windermere Pale. What a great brewery.
Courage RIS. It finally turned up in my Tesco. Not bad....
It wasn't worth 69 Pence to be honest.
3 bottles of wine and oh jesus my head. Why does wine give such a worse hangover than beer?
Because the Spanish & French hate us
What a hellish week. I need to treat myself. Back later.
Drinking the Wild Beer Co. Modus Operandi as we speak, my initial impressions are quite good. It's surprsingly light (It's barrell aged so I was expecting it to be a thicker) but definitely has a nice taste, it's very very fruity.
Hello Matty, we've not communicated yet!
You've joined the BA UK threads just around the same time I've surfaced again after a self imposed exile.
Currently drinking down a Harbour India Pale Ale: I have a couple of the Sainsbury 2013 Beer challenge beers hanging around still, so thought I drink one before it's BBD arrived.
I've a few Belgian brews I've lined up next.
