If you can get some...try Williams Brothers Brewery - 7 Giraffes. A very nice drop.

Orkney Brewery - Corncrake is rather fine too.

Trooper is way better than I had expected and is a regular in the larder here

I am enjoying anything by Ringwood at the moment - went on a brewery tour down there (hight reccommended if you are in the New Forest area) earlier this year.

Asda seem to be selling Old Thumper and Tesco are doing Boondoggle. Give them a go!
Absolutley love it, & I'm normally a lager drinker. A mate said he'd had it at Download & wasn't impressed, but they were seerving it warm, not cellar temp, so hardly the best conditions.

I'm quite enjoying Prometheus, from Milton Brewery, right now.

A noble quest.

I am currently enjoying Ossian.

I refuse to pay more than £1.50 per bottle. This limits options somewhat. Special offers are lovely.

I rescued a dog the other day (no, really) and the relieved owner gave me a coupla bottles of Crabbies as a thank you. Which was nice. Love a good ginger beer.

Had a bottle of Lone Star in the Diner in London the other day - found it to be a really light refreshing lager.

Ossian is very nice indeed as is their Lia Fail.

And more importantly Boab, well done on rescuing that persons dog. For all that you swipe at my team you're nae a bad egg.

The other half's been trying to convert me to ale of late.... *shudder*
Found a wheat beer called Hurdy Gurdy the other day that wasn't bad though, went nicely with a good steak.

Had a lovely pint of Exmoor gold last night, free as well as I covered a shift at short
notice! I do like the light summer ales. Exmoor gold and Summer lightening being
2 good examples.
If you are a lager drinker who doesn't think that you'd enjoy an ale then you should
give these 2 a try.

Wal-Mart, we love you.

Just when I think I vowed never to step foot again in that monstrosity of a store....Wal-Mart lowers prices again.

Right now they are trying to corner the beer sales market by selling Coors and Bud at cost. Basically 0.6 - 1% markup...compared to 26% markup for Soft Drinks.

So right now you can get a 12-pack of Bud Light for US $5 and change or 3.5 GBP.

I don't know about you but where I live, the tap water doesn't get me drunk.

But Coors and Bud will.
