That's an impressive list of beers you have there. Unfortunately, Imgur is overloaded, so a viewing will have to wait. :shrug:

I just made that one up, too.

Nope, it's real. Tasteless name, but a tasty beer.

Tried Sixpoint's Apollo. It's a very unique beer. Kristalweizen, so it's a filtered wheat, no yeasty sediments. However, they're using a brettanomyces yeast in the brewing, so it gets that tarty funkiness. It's like a wheat crossed with a lambic.

The Independent put out a list of their 50 best British beers. Being a 'Murican, I've only have a few of these. Any disagreements/snubs?

From a quick scan I've had about four of those. The only one I don't think should be in there is the banana beer, it tasted like banana cough medicine to me.

If you spot it about I really recommend March of the Penguins, it's a lovely stout.

Agreed, and it's a largely panned brew. Hell, Sierra Nevada's Kellerweis has a better banana flavor, and there's no bananas in it.

I need to post a test comment to see if my computer's existential angst is still ongoing, and I am curious regardless - I found some Ballast Point Sculpin IPA/Dorado double IPA the other day and it was definitely close to a religious experience. Anyone else run into Ballast point recently? I consider my liver to be an expert in matters of IPA, but he hasn't run into this brewery at all.

Discuss.

Great beer list. I know i've had 2 of those for sure, and may have had more, but can't recall any more. Some names do ring a bell.

I love Hook Norton beers, the Double Stout is superb. That's a really useful list to print out and go forth and try.

Well, it's not really beer but I got a bottle of ginger wine from Sainsbury's. £3.50 and it's rather tasty, it reminds me of a cross between Jagermeister and Martini Rosso.

Brewery Ommegang And Duvel Moortgat Release First Collaboration Beer

The collaboration captures the delicate balance of the classic Duvel Belgian Golden Ale – one of the world’s most exalted beers – and adds a touch of the typical rustic fruitiness enhancing every Ommegang ale.

^Belgian-style Golden Ale of 8.5% ABV

Yummy.

I may have already mentioned this but Marks and Spencer have gone bonkers on the bottled beer front. They have been selling some cracking ales including a Chocolate Brown Ale brewed by Robinsons which is 5.5% and a number of Adnams Specialities.
