A brewery in Liverpool, Ad Hop, made a 0.9% impy stout a few years back.

Although knowing those guys it was probably just a mistake


#9923

Think their core beers are great, cwtch and the like, but their specials are too whacky for me, and as such, I’ve not had a beer of theirs for almost a year. Went to their pub in Cardiff on a stag in 2017 and that was great mind. Mixed feels on TR


#9924

Dutty’s the only one I can stomach, fucking hate all the artificial flavouring and obsession with lactose (and their branding, for that matter)


#9925

Yeah pretty much the same


#9926

There’s always plenty of guests on in the Cardiff TR bar - in fact if you’re around on Thursday, there’s a Magic Rock tap takeover…


#9927

Best Highbury and Islington bar? I’m guessing Hammerton?


#9928

I’ll be in Newport!


#9929

Fair. You just there for the day? The Newport bar is pretty decent (there’ll deffo will be some guests on - both keg & cask) and easily the best pub in the city.


#9930

Playing a gig so not entirely sure how much time/how close I’ll be but my impression was that might be the case


#9931

It’s a pretty small city but the bar right by the bus / train station so dead central. Other than TR you’re pretty much limited to Spoons / unfriendly locals pubs. Where are you playing?


#9932

Le Pub!


#9933

Yeah Hammerton


#9934

Looked it up, appears to be around the corner!


#9935

Didn’t know they had a pub.

Keep buying their peanut butter milk stout when I go to the Prince Charles, think its really nice.


#9936

Oh, not actually been to Le Pub! Heard good things though. Might be free on Thursday so could potentially pop over for your set!


#9937

Yeah, I really like that milk stout too. Adrian Chiles also a big fan.

I really flip-flop about all the NA beers and what I like. Sometimes I think anything ‘craft’ is pointless, other times I really like them. What I have found though, is that (like regular beer) I drink things with a stronger flavour more slowly. Last night I got in from work and had 4 cans of Becks Blue - first couple I pretty much downed. Don’t do that with something like the Big Drop milk stout.


#9938

Must be frustrating being a brewer at the mo’.

2017 - “We only want 8% DIPAs”
2019 - “Oh - you only have 1 low alcohol offering…”


#9939

They need to be more like Radiohead and make beer for themselves, not their fans.

Wait til the ESBs boom after brexit


#9940

You joke but ESBs are very hot right now


#9941

I’m not joking at all! Had a ton in Asheville and the American side of the industry is going nuts for them. They just don’t make sense here yet I don’t think. But they will
