    There's such a massive choice these days (over 1,000 breweries just in the UK) that there really is something out there for any taste.

    Now balancing out the last beer with a Fyne ales 'Jarl'. A zesty session ale.

    Most refreshing. Might crack their Avalanche brew next.

    :)

    Had a 20% Bloody Stains at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration today.

    ...Time for bed.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    20% is mental...

    I had a fruity ale tonight. It was like drinking a pale ale mixed with fruit juice, very odd.

    Any places to recommend for beers over there? Will be there in the summer. I hope it is less pricey than norway!

    Up in Cumbria so gathered a few bottles of local ale together, tried a Bluebird Bitter from the Coniston Brewing Co. tonight. Very reasonable too, a beautifully refreshing way to end a day walking up and down hillsides with your daughter strapped to your back.

    I'm having a bottle of this at the moment, actually not the whole bottle as it'd probably put me in a deep state of drunk..ment...tory. Fantastic stuff:

    The Bluebird XB is quite nice too. Gotta love Cumbrian ales, golden colours and packed with hops.

    Does anyone here know of any pure real ale pubs? I have been approached about managing a real ale bar, no food and just wondering if any of u guys know of any and if they are successful at all?

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    I live near Bury St Edmunds and there are a couple of pure real ale pubs in town, both of which seem to be doing extremely well. In Cambridge, there are a fair few proper beer pubs which are very popular (Cambridge Blue, Kingston Arms, Live and Let live). There are loads of beer pubs/bars in London too (The Rake, Craft Beer Co, Cask, Euston Tap) - they seem to be the in-thing at the moment.

    Thanks Juan. I'm in cardiff area though so it's possible that the different socio economic situation could make a difference. Not sure. It is soooo what I want. The brewery owns the bars so its their own stuff. I fucking hate potentially life changing decisions!

    @Jono62

    I will definitely be buying that again.

    I also tried their 'Sunburst' pale ale. It was rather pleasant too.

    Had a bottle of this after spotting it in my local Tesco the other day and thought it was fantastic. Might have overtaken Sierra Nevada as one of my favourite beers. Only had the one so i'll have to try a few more before I come to that sort of conclusion mind you.

    Not only do I know of a plethora of pure real ale pubs, I wouldn't frequent anything else through choice. Glorious establishments, full of the cream of society, engaging in convivial discussion on the merits of the malt over a gentle sampling of the palest of the pale all the way up to a mighty imperial stout. Successful? We're overrun with the damn things, I can barely keep up. There are 3 new ones set to open this year, 2 of them brewery pubs.

    However, consider the sorry plight of the non-drinker. Through no fault of my own, I am on a period of enforced temperance. It has driven me to despair, so much so I ended up buying a fucking Wii U the other week. Imagine being stuck in one of these grim gulags, full of beer bores droning on about hops, fruit, zest and combinations thereof. With no escape possible through the diversion of food, quiz machines or table top Space Invaders , you're trapped like a mannequin on Gertler's Merry-go-Round as you endure you're own personal stay in Malebolge.

    In short, plunge ahead with abandonment, it may be a glorious failure but you'll surely have fun getting there!

    Went camping last weekend and did a tour of the Ringwood Brewery. Getting a pint of Old Thumper straight from the source was one of the best pints I've ever had.

    + Old Thumper fudge ice cream! :D

    A Thornbridge brewery 'Wild Raven' black IPA. 6.6%. Yet again, a cracking brew which goes down very well.

    I have yet to have a beer I didn't like from them.

    / toasts your good health.

    A couple of bitters on the menu tonight.

    First up was the delightfully named 'The Village Bike' from Potton brewery. A 4.3% award winning bitter apparently. It was quite dark, with a bit of an aftertaste to start with, but perfectly drinkable.

    However, it could not compare to the next brew, which was a Rich brewery 'Pitchfork'. Another 4.3% brew and again an award winning beer. It was a bottle-conditioned beer with yeast and was a delight to drink.

    In the event of a beer drought, I would possibly consider trading my non-drinking arm for a couple of cases of this.

    Gentleman's Wit by the Camden Town Brewery (4.3%)

    It was interesting. Aroma is creamy. Nice wheat flavour with a lemony kick at the end. Recommended.
