@nestor lives in here I think


#7342

@nestor if you’re about I’m the sunburnt bloke on my own reading a book with a delicious pint of Hickey the Rake


#7343

The pineapple mana is good, smells like a really dry European wheat beer and has a good hit of pineapple without it being overwhelming. Would drink again.


#7344

Just got in and seen this! You still there?

Can see you from my window :wave:


#7345

Any especially worthwhile brewery tours in Amsterdam? In English ideally or I’ll miss all the interesting details …

Also any good craft bar recs are appreciated :slight_smile:


#7346

I really enjoyed the Heineken experience, and now they’re a craft brewery, they should have Beavertown on tap :wink:

Honestly, it was fun, but not everyone’s cuppa


#7347

I’ve only ever done the Brooklyn one before, and they’re hardly the most indie operation either - so might give Hein a try


#7348

I’m still here! Drop me a PM if you fancy a beer


#7349

Best one I’ve done is Fuller’s, only because there were 2 of us on the tour and it was the guide’s last shift. Had about 10 pints and unsurprisingly forgot everything.

Have also done the halve maan in Bruges a couple of times which is lovely


#7350

The first one I ever did was Youngs, when they still had the farm out the back. I got butted by a :goat:


#7351

Sly half of this at lunch. Very nice.


#7352

There’s a lot of very nice Brighton Biers about (and quite a few average ones). My favourite is Freshman, which they used to do in cans, but sadly I haven’t seen any about in ages


#7353

I’m going to the Oxted Beer Festival on Saturday, it’s about as middle class as you can imagine. But they’ve got some good beers.

#7354

any b-wankers got any recs for Budapest? besides the usual ruin bars and so on


#7355

Léhűtő, Élesztő and Jónás Craft Beer House were decent. Found them all on a list the Guardian did years ago. Didn’t try any of the others.


#7356

Not come across them before. That was really nice though.


#7357

I’ve had quite a few of their beers, if you’re ever in Brighton the Brighton Bierhaus is worth a visit.


#7358

That’s a really nice beer list. As progressive as the Lewes Beer Festival I went to the other week, which had plenty of craft on the list too. I’m glad that beer festivals are doing this, despite the CAMRA vote about not supporting craft a few months back.


#7359

Really? Do some really good pales and IPAs. Big fan. Also one of the best pubs in Brighton imo


#7360

The guy who runs my local beer shop in Oxted is involved in the beer selections this year. They’ll be a few more craft beers not on that list I’m sure.
