So all you alchoholics, what liver buster is your drink of choice?
Tried anything tasty as of recent?

Im not a big drinker anymore but im very much a cider man. And this stuff is the tastiest of them all:

Sounds like something theyd serve in a Fantasy pub. Tastes like awesomeness.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

USED to be into the Budweiser;
Moved onto JD;
Stopped drinking for two years, not a drop until last year's Retrovision;
Onto the "real ales" - just whatever dark ones are going (Hobgoblin?);
A brief stint with Malibu and Coke - one barman wouldn't let me have that because he said it was a "girl's drink";
Now I'm addicted to that beautiful Crabbies stuff!

I've always liked my Mexican beers & I'm rather partial to these fellows at the moment...

Image

As it's cheaper than lager I've started drinking Real Ales of a lunchtime & I'm starting to appreciate the taste. In the past Real Ale bores have put me off, but you can get some really lovely pints, a lot cheaper than the generic lagers too!

But when I crave for a taste of home, I yearn for the soda stream pisswater lager that is HARP!

Image

To be honest, I'll drink pretty much anything booze related given the chance.

And tomorrow night I plan to have quite the blow out at In Da 80's - my first drinking session for quite some time too! :D

I like real ales, english cider (such as the lovely goblin stuff above), whiskies of various discriptions and origins and rum.
Ill also drink stouts and bitters or Lager as a last resort.

Anything ale, most bottled/draft cider and almost any Scotch whiskey (preferably grain to malt).
Hobgoblin or Skull Splitter are my favourite ales, Green Goblin the cider and probably Grants Ale Cask or Snow Grouse for whiskey.

Another vote for Good Old Jack Daniels over here!

Can drink buckets of it and just be merry and happy, also doesn't give me the same vile hang overs I get with Lager.

I run a bar. I love ALE.

Have had 148 different Ales on the bar in the past 4 years :D Some fantastic - some just good!

Currently have Jorvik Blonde 3.8% (very very nice if you get the chance) from Rudgate Brewery.
Flack Catcher 4.4% from Flack Manor brewery (if you have ever tried any Ringwood Brewery ales, this is for you - as the brothers that sold out to Marstons now run this one!... Marstons ruin everything they touch. :evil: )
and my fave............. Theakstons Old Peculiar 5.6% - if you like Ale and have never tried this (you need to have it from the keg, not the bottle) it is FANTASTIC :D

Oh, and Malt Whiskey .... Currently drinking a very large Singleton..... :D :D
