The Beer Thread
« on: October 08, 2016, 12:51:22 PM »
I've been meaning to start this for a while. Beer is a drink that a lot of like; it's been around for millennia, and it comes in a very wide range of styles and flavours.

I like all sorts of different beers, from different countries: dark, malty stouts and porters (Britain), Belgian sour ales and lambics, German wheat beers, Czech lagers. Which beers have you tried? Which do you like?

For me, the best one locally is potbelly's Lager Brau. I'd say it was a Gold Ale but I'm not great at judging these things.


Although I believe we have different tastes :)


More well known beers I like are Wychwood Brewery's Goliath which I can never find anywhere locally for some reason (https://www.classicales.co.uk/Products/Wychwood_Goliath/65) and Samuel Adams Boston Lager.


Otherwise it's mostly Lagers and Guinness. Which this thread should probably not discuss, unless through thinly veiled sarcasm.
Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the Comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

A nice warm lager and a packet of crisps. :)

I don't seem too keen on beer anymore.

I feel like I should learn to drink beer, but almost invariably still seem to enjoy cider more. I did introduce Bigosaur to his first British pub (specifically the Wellington in Birmingham) recently - he got a pint of Penny Porter or some name like that, which seemed to go down well.

Samuel Jackson beer is also really good.
