Mmm Yum. This stuff is great... especially once a year during the Bishops Castle Beer Festival. biggrin
I missed the Festival in 2011 (I think it was mid-June?) but will do my best to attend 2012.

No dates on the Three Tuns website (yet).

My local real ale pub had a brilliant selection yesterday. I didn't know which 2 beers to have, so I had a pint of the first 5! The Abbeydale ales were superb, as were my favourites the Citra and Harvest Pale.

I sampled many Ales over the past week in the lakes, blowed if I can remember that names though!

Wainrights springs to mind, very good it was too. I'll do some research of local ales (to that region).
Wainwrights is a Thwaites brew,

Got given four bottles of this as a Christmas prezzie. I'm a great fan of Butcombe's beers. They were the first brewery I ever did a visit to in the early 80's whilst stationed near Weston Super Mare with the RAF. I really like their Butcombe Gold but this is an able substitute.

Always fun to get an American friend (if you have one) to order it for you too.

"A pint of butt-cum please".

Had 2 of these last night from the Humpty Dumpty brewery at Reedham on the Norfolk Broads. Very hoppy tasting but extremely drinkable brew.

I can recommend Ramsbury ales made in Ramsbury near Marlborough.



Ramsbury

I purchased a mixed case just before Xmas. 12 bottles for £24. This contained 3 Flintknapper, 3 Gold, 3 506 and 3 Silver pig stout. I only have 1 silver pig stout left.....
I gave up drinking five years ago and have only just 'come back on-line'.

Really nice ales.

Been enjoying a few ales from the Tesco promo that was on over the Xmas period.

Some notables were Old Tom, Glencoe and Old crafty hen, (the last 2 new to me) and others, including St Peter's Golden Ale.

This last really impressed me...a fantastic summer ale....Will be keeping my eyes peeled for next time it's on promo, lovely stuff, easily as good, and perhaps better than any of the very expensive premium lagers I have tried (peroni reserva etc).

Cristoffel Blonde:
Hop character giving a superb piney aroma with toasted malt and spicy hops in the mouth.

Membership to a (local-ish) Brewery was a gift at Christmas. I took advantage of it on Saturday and purchased a 3 litre bottle of their finest. Didn't last long, about 3 hours between me and the other half.

But, it did taste a bit flat. I suppose its already been poured into the plastic container. Suppose next time I'll have to opt for the 22pint 'lasts 3 weeks once opened' keg. Obviously it isn't going to last that long...

At a small pub in London recently...quite tasty:


Some Christmas presents now departed: the Rhymney was a particularly good stout!

Demolished a 22 pint-er from Rebellion brewery, IPA, this weekend. Very drinkable and its pressurised, so it was fresh every time.

I tried a couple of low ABV beers at a CAMRA fest on Saturday. Felstar's '2%' and Brentwood's 'BBC2' (2.5%). Both very nice beers.

Wasn't my favourite to be honest. A bit too 'perfumey' for my tastes, but if you like that kind of thing it would be good!
