Real Ale Drinkers or Lagerboys?

Post by TyronW » Mon Jan 19, 2009 6:46 am

Just thought I'd see how many peeps here are real ale drinkers, and enjoy a good pint of the right stuff.

Wychwood are one of my favourite breweries, Hobgoblin being a fav.

Dont mind the occasional pint of real ale. I find it sits heavy on my stomach though so I dont have it often.

Lol i drink real ale and am 20. A pipe looks like a good investment.....or not.

Any of you tried ale?

Lol I find it easier than lager, with lager I tend to belch all the time and feel gassy.

Also if it sits heavy, could be a pint of mild? Seeing as your from Derbyshire, its more common to have a pint of mild up north, and yes it can upset peoples stomach.

Im not a fan of Fizzy drinks so tend to go for the Smooths...

I don't mind ale though and drink it if offered.

Used to be into bitter but modern pubs are ruining the stuff by serving it chilled. F'ing barbarians.

I too find that real ale is a bit heavy now (used to adore it in my early 20s) and have drifted off into drinking red wine instead. As for lager, I think you'll find most real ale drinkers are quite fans of quality lager (Belgian, Czech etc.) it's the fizzy Carling and American crap that gives lager it's poor reputation.

As a Black Countryman I'm a fan of Bathams (small regional brewer), Enville Ale (another small local brewer, this a sort of pale ale brewed with honey) and Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild, a mild only available at one pub.

Anyone been watching the Oz and James thing on BBC2? Its not bad, but seems like a jolly boys outing more than a programme.

During the winter like a nice pint of Green King IPA or Tetleys. When it's warmer though I always drink Lager, whatevers usually available, all tastes pretty similar.

All year round I drink Jack Daniels and diet coke. :o

Went through a spate of drinking ale, but now am more likely to dring lager (or wine when I am out with work as they like to share a bottle or six).

I do like Wychwood though and often get a few bottles of Hobgoblin in. I have a couple at home ready for the footy tonight.

If anyone wants to get themselves a Wychwood tshirt but are short of bottle caps then let me know. I have a load at home and won't ever use them.

I confess (after taking the mick out of these real ale drinkers), being a southerner i'm a cider drinker through and through. One of the few drinks i like the taste of, when i've tried ale and other stuff before, christ i just want to heave.

I drink either, depending on mood. Brought up on lager, but developed a taste for real ales over the last 15 years since I started going to the local beer festival every year.

There's far more variety in real ales than there is in lagers, a huge range of tastes. Even Mrs Ant likes some of them, so I suggest anyone who tried a couple and dismissed them goes to a beer fest for a wider range of tasting.
