Really odd but I am sitting here with 1/2 pint of Windsor & Eton Conqueror 1075 (7.4%).... the forst half ofit has destroyed me :? How odd.
Blody good though
Maybe if it was a pint of Tactical Nuclear Penguin (32%) you could. I usually only drink that by the shot though.

Just depends on what you've eaten or drank beforehand I suppose...

Had a pretty crappy day the other week so decided to come home and head out into the garden with a bottle of I&G. Didn't realise that I hadn't eaten or drank anything else for around 3 hours so the alcohol went straight to me and I got a bit tipsy :oops:

It was worth it though, as I&G usually is.

Not sure about that!

I do love the Rum-flavoured one though. Could go for a bottle now but the fridge is just full of discounted Asahi beer that I bought a while back :(

At forty pounds for a bottle, you'd drink it by the shot too. :D

I must admit that I had only had a bag of crisps that day - so I suppose 7.4 ale was going to do something!

Was in a B&M's today but no Fired Oak Innis & Gunn unfortunately :(

All I got was a random encounter with an old geezer clutching a bottle of orange Bulmers who said to me "Just buyin' my breakfast"

:lol:

Missed the beer festival at Pittodrie this weekend, think it's only the second time I've missed it since '95.

Mrs Ant says she had a nice chocolate and coconut beer. Must find out what that was.

We have one of those regularly on the bar... Waen Brewery in Wales and the beer is Snowball 7% (Chocolate & Coconut). If it was that one, then yeah a really nice stout.

A bit of an odd one for me. Drinking Prosecco :shock:

Yeah, ok we had a nice meal today to say farewell to one of my daughters friends (moving to Latvia!!!!) - she is very upset. So we had some sparkling wine to make them feel a little more happy.
What's left is what I am drinking - in a pint glass :lol:

Wine should be drunk by the pint.

I am going hardcore Today.

Glass quarter of the way with baileys, topped to the top with cold M&m chocolate milk drink and some whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles on. A real mans drink. none of your girly whisky or real ale here.

Don't Judge me.
