Just finished a bottle of Whyte and McKay.
Now I'm off out. Wish me luck.

I'm all about my Ales and i often have one with my dinner. Here are some of my favourites

Badger - Poachers Choice - Strong and slightly fruity
Green King - Old Crafty Hen - Brutal, but very tasty
Thwaites - Nutty Black - Very Black indeed
Wychwood - Hobgoblin/King Goblin - Hobgoblin is great, but the King Goblin is stronger and tastier.

I have gotten a taste for much stonger ales recently. During the summer i drink much lighter ales like Badger Fursty Ferret. Despite it being near by, and i used to live there, I'm not a fan of much done by Ringwood Brewery

You live near Ringwood brewery.... and think Hall & Shithouse is better :shock: Badgers Choice is the best they do but Ringwood's 49er or Old Thumper are much nicer (well, I think so!). Ringwood Porter is exceptional.

It's funny how everyones taste is different. I'm not a fan of much by Ringwood at all. I think both Old Thumper & Boondoggle are foul. 49er is probably their best. Another brewery that i've never like much from is Shepherds Neame. I had a bottle of Rudolphs Reward at Christmas and i poured it down the sink!

Well, they do a few decent beers. 'Late Red' and 'Early Bird' are pretty good. But otherwise(and I say this as a former resident of Kent)their beers do leave a lot to be desired.

^How did the night out go, after finishing off that bottle of Whyte & McKay? I wasn't sure whether you'd necked a whole bottle prior to going out or had just polished off the remainder of a 'previous' bottle.

Myself? Am currently on the wine but was massively on the beer earlier, saw my naked gut in the mirror earlier and realise I am now sporting a proper f*ckin' beer belly, 2.5 months pregnant style. Withdrawal, gymmage and conversion to marijuana as an addiction seem to be the answer, alcoholism is proper fattening.

Had finished the remainder.
The night was interesting; girlfriend broke up with me, alcohol-assisted panic attack ensued and I ended up in my neighbour's bathroom screaming at the walls and hitting stuff. However, the bit beforehand was great; it's always amazing to be able to do a shot of a 40% spirit and see people watch in amazement.

Since then, to fend off the panic attacks, didn't drink until last night. Had a bottle of 5AM Saint by Brewdog which was really nice; grapefruit taste in it too, somehow.

The majority of Brewdog beers have a Grapefruit taste! I love them - but the members at the club I run don't :evil: So I have to drink it from bottles. :roll:

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.
