Adnam's Broadside, bottled.
But bottled? Does it work? REALLY?
is where it's at.
it was Wells'.
As is Badger's Golden Champion, and Waggledance obviously.
I had some mighty rank cherry beer at the weekend though. ERGH.
Coming soon: Mike's music venue beer guide. Starting Friday. Probably.
Beer in hand: Carling in Plastic Cup.
Available at: Garage, Highbury; widespread across London and regional venues.
Pros: Plastic cup ensures drinker can hurl 'glass' at friend/enemy without fear of actually killing them.
Cons: Carling in Plastic Cup.
Best drunk while listening to: Some band that's so awful you're going to leave in two minutes, abandoning the still-full pint of 'beer'.
Possible alternatives: Lighter fluid and Beechams cocktail.
Overall score: Minus a billion.
of the Hen last night. 'Tis tasty.
Broadside is just about the best beer you can get out of a bottle at the moment.
but the draught stuff is great.
for the first time in ages. It's a very nice pint.
at the Camra pub of the year in Claygate on Sunday.
Very good stuff.
although hobgoblin is kinda good too.
and it's 6.2% I think...
Anyway, does the job.
...not exactly widespread, is it?
I shall be taking notes from now on.
The Spitz has a half-decent selection downstairs if I remember, and the Betsey and Water Rats often have Spitfire on.
I am seriously gonna do an ale/beer of the week. Yes. In the NEWS section. It's where it belongs.
it should be a daily feature...
as for beer in gig venues the cluny in newcastle has a great range of lagers and bitters. The Brickyard in Carlisle has a very good range of lagers as well.
It's 4.1% light bitter.
fuck off. you should be recommending beer from the york brewery. centurian ghost ale is phenomenal.
