Wow, NEVER thought I'd see the bunch mentioned on this website

The Krombacher and Paulaner are only at Tesco. But every supermarket has its own commerical tie in with a better German company. Waitrose will sell Bitburger & Sainsbury will sell Warsteiner for instance.
Good websites!

In terms of beers sold in Supermarkets this is the best......




.......but other specialist beer shops have far more interesting ales. Supermarkets still remain quite narrow in terms of choice

Landlord by Timothy Taylor is always a favourite ale of mine especially in summer.

Good to see Ringwood's Old Thumper get a mention, (fairly local to me is Ringwood, going on a brewery tour there with my Dad in July), their Best is very popular in the local New Forest pubs and I also love Forty-Niner (all you San Fran ale fans should make that your drink of choice ).

Lots of people do not rate Badger ales (Dorest based brewey) but I love them too. You might have seen Golden Glory and Golden Champion in the supermarkets. Lovely if you want something fairly light and summery.

There is supposed to be a very good specialist shop in Cardiff as well
Here is a review of a shopping trip
http://bloodstoutandtears.blogspot.c...%20beer%20shop

Aspall is a nice drop. But shockingly expensive in Ireland. Something like 5 Euros for a Bottle

To the OP . If you want a decent American-ish Brew. try Samuel Adams.
Its actually a Vienna style and its very nice.
As for Bocks. They are very hard to find here. But recently Zyweic released their own Bock version which I have found in many shops
at 6.5% it does pack a punch though

There's a nice little pub by Charing Cross thats owned by Badger, called 'The Ship' I think.
