  • The Buxton Anglo-Belgique IPA is worth every penny.

    Sacre Brew do one called Buffalo Beer Belgian Quadruppel, which is excellent, they do loads of Belgian styles, I've only managed to pick them up when in Birmingham on work though sadly.

  • I fed my Christmas cake with the Ilkley fig Dubbel this year, it's delicious

  • So Brewdog Grays Inn Road closed two weeks ago. That was a waste of a lunch hour.

    They were boasting about their makeover less than a month before they just didn't reopen after Xmas, very odd.

  • Cloudwater & Magic Rock Big Dipper/DIPA

    Magic Rock Bearded Lady

    Happy days.

  • Cloudwater Ardbeg BA Imperial stout. Oof.

  • Had the Wild Beer Breakfast of Champignons last night, it was a good sour but I'm not really sure what the mushrooms add.

  • Had Spontannelson last night, delicious

    Also had coffee stout and blueberry pancakes for breakfast

  • Wild Beer Pogo is alcoholic Tropicana! :D

  • Xmas drinking was Bombardier, Old Speckled Hen, Adnams Ghost Ship, Tring Ridgeway and Hook Norton Hooky. You can keep yer craft beers!

  • I live near Hook Norton, did the brewery tour before Christmas. Was epic.

    Hooky do some decent crafty style beers, a decent red rye ale, and their seasonal 12 days is ace.

    Not a big fan of the major breweries output but at least Hook Norton keep it real, they even still deliver to local pubs using horse and cart

  • Nice one, we were in Redditch drinking Hook Norton and Purity.

    Was absolutely gutted a couple of years ago because I missed out on a massive group of friends doing the Purity tour then camping in a field next to the brewery, the guy organising is a landlord and was getting a few polypins at mates rates, would have been brilliant

  • Nowt wrong with Ghost Ship

  • Fragrant, refreshing, short life on the palette

  • I discovered Oatmeal Milk Stout over the festive period. Yum. #csb

  • I love the Sam Smiths version but I had a pint of something else in a pub near Kings X before xmas but can't remember what it was #csb

  • The East London Brewing one is nice.

  • Yeah just looked on their site. Will order a few. thanks

  • Porters and stouts this winter for me too. I feel like I've found the alcoholic equivalent of black coffee!

    Siren's Broken Dream and Wiper & True's Milkshake are delicious. I also ordered a few bottles of the Left Hand nitro and it's so incredibly smooth, really lovely and definitely my favourite so far.

  • Yeah am not sure I would drink dark beers in the summer, would be citrusy hoppy IPAs for me.

    As far as depressing January goes, Porters and stouts are like a big hug for your liver.

  • Had some Brewdog 'Mr President' last night. 9.2% double IPA.

    Tasted like barley wine. You can get pretty buzzed off one 330ml bottle tho, is like 2 pints of Punk IPA

  • Not bargain bin but Celt Experience rocked my world.

  • BottleDog?

    That was handy when I worked in the City and rode past daily.

    Guess they couldn't afford to stay open without me.

  • Had some Avery sours on the weekend. Cucumber and Hibiscus dafuq?>(*£^

    Also Speedway Stout and Blacklight Banana. Speedway was lush.

  • Celt have recently been sold so not sure if beers are still the same

  • New brewery 5 mins from my house are showing a cycling film tomorrow
