#4341

Going by my untappd ratings…

Pale: Verdant - Maybe One More PSI
Stout/Porter: Modern Times - City of the Dead or Omnipollo - Anagram
Sour: Beavertown - Tempus Project Moonshiner
Other: Legitimate Industries - Belgian Quad

Conversely my absolute worst beer was By The Horns - Wolfie Smith, which smelled and tasted like absolute toilet.


#4342

Pale: Cloudwater DIPA V12/Birthday DIPA

Stout/Porter: Buxton Yellow Belly Sundae/Ice Cream Texas Pecan Pie/Maple Truffle Waffle Ice Cream

Sour: Wild Beer BA Yakodai

Other: Schneider Weisse Aventus Eisbock (12% Eisbock)/Kasteel Cuvee du Chateau (Belgian quad)


#4343

Texas Pecan was on my shortlist with Drygate Double Orinocco.


#4344

Both of those are a Good Bunch of Beers.


#4345

Right also going through untappd

Pale: DEYA - High Planes Drifter or Wylam - Open to persuasion
Stout/Porter: Buxton - Original Texas Pecan Ice Cream
Sour: Beavertown - Tempus Project Moonshiner
Other: Little Earth Project - Organic Harvest Saison
Festival: None this year
Bar: Brus, Copenhagen

Worst beer goes to some horrible Lychee one from Bali.


#4346

I’ve tried several By the Horns beers and they’ve all ranged from slightly worse than average to absolute dogshit.


#4347

Terrible brewery


#4348

Another list from Untappd

Pale: Tree House Doppleganger, Trillium Congress Street, Cloudwater Birthday DIPA

Stout/Porter: Prairie / Evil Twin Barrel Aged Bible Belt, Prairie Paradise, Yellow Belly Sundae

Sour: Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus

Other: Allagash Curieux (bourbon barrel aged tripel)

Festival: Beavertown Extravaganza

Bar: I didn’t get out much this year, was impressed with the Tiny Rebel tap house in Cardiff though.


#4349

Good in there


#4350

Pains me to say it as they’re local to me, but they really aren’t great.

They’re a short walk from my house and the tap room is a brilliant great place to go with kids en route to get lunch in Tooting or Earlsfield, but i’ll almost always opt for the guest beer (usually Belleville).

The first things I had from them were Stiff Upper Lip and Mayor of Garratt which were both on cask and both very good. Excellent, actually. Then I think their head brewer left and they starting doing loads of really odd keg/bottled beers. Samba King and the Two Tone Lager are especially bad.


#4351

Probably biggest regret of last year not going to that.


#4352

Samba king is fucking awful


#4353

This is why I need to get back on Untappd. I think my only list is in this thread…

Festivals: I’m yet to go to one of the new wave of beer festivals. Remain a fan of weird CAMRA ones where all the men wear sandals and have Gandalf style walking sticks
Bar: First visits to Cloudwater in Manchester and The Antelope in Surbiton were pub/bar/tap room highlights. Also enjoyed trips Shilling Brewing Company in Glasgow, The Waterloo Tap and the new Mother Kellys. So many great places to drink these days.


#4354

These are the best though


#4355

The beer’s always a bit warm, though isn’t it.


#4356

They really are. Sessionable ales, shit sandwiches, Morris Dancers, and I’m a huuuge fan of a takeout in one of those milk bottle things for the train home.


#4357

Isotonic mate.


#4358

And? It costs £1.60 for a very generous half


#4359

Always found there’s a direct correlation between beard length and the generousness of the halves.


#4360

Go to one in Portsmouth in October and they will generally give you 2/3rds instead of halves for silly prices.
