I think that may mark the weekend I finally pop down and meet you. Might get Nakamura down too as I believe you have already met him.

Yeah, went to one of the events with him! If he is coming, I may start pestering Darran too... but I'm not sure if he is man enough for Ale :lol:

Went to Manchester the weekend, got bored of all the flavoured ciders so thought id try something new.

I loved it, it was called Desperado and was beer with Tequila in...it came with a wedge of lime in the bottle...I cant remember what happened after the 3rd one. Something like 7%, slow motion head and a lot merry and that is NEVER the case with me.

Tonights ale from work is Celt Experience 'Bleddyn 1075' 5.6% - an amazing IPA bursting with tropical fruit flavours! I recon the only thing the Welsh do properly is brew beer :lol: :wink:

Oi! They craft a darn fine whiskey, y'know - Penderyn. Maybe it's just too strong for those in short trousers.... :mrgreen:

Having said that, am off to Belgium next month and will, despite my hatred of anything commonly found in a 'pint glass', just have to try some hard-to-find Belgian beer. Am thinking a Chimay, one of the lambics and/or a Kwak. Better still would be a double-shot of The Belgian Owl, a single malt with a record-breaking alcohol content (for whiskey) of 76.5%! Gotta sip it neat, and take a few days over it!

Here's an odd one. I'm drinking Sharp's Cornish Pilsner! 5.2% bottle conditioned and actually jolly nice too. This is what craft lager should taste like :D

Brass Castle is fairly local to me & I was talking to their chief brewer only a couple of weeks ago.

Of their ales I would definitly recommend Bad Kitty which is a superb porter/stout bursting with flavour :D

If you liked that, try their Burnout. 5.8% and black as a black cat that has fallen in a tin of black paint. If you go back in there - tell him that his beer has been on in Poole and is bloody awesome!

What brewery you going too?

Ive just got in from a 16 hour shift setting up my 5th beer festival! Had to get a sneeky try of the 10.5% Ogham Ash (a Russian Imperial Porter) from Celt Experience. AWESOME :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Westvleteren 12 last night; nectar of the Gods:-

We are now down to our last 12 bottles at home after getting 48 bottles direct from the Monks in Feb 2013. Brugge beer festival booked for Feb 2015 & another visit to the Monastery is definitely in order.

Good brewery! Trooper is their popular ale of the moment - Iron Maiden themed. IF you get a chance though, ask nicely for some Old Tom (8.5%) - it is really really good stuff :D
