Vocation are probably my favourite.


#1623

Excellent glass!


#1624

Anyone been to the verdant brewery? They have a tour/taproom? Will be down in Cornwall in May.


#1625

Thanks I stole it from Nippon kitchen in town


#1626

Drinking a Make Apple Pie Great Again. It really does taste like apple pie. Not sure that’s a good thing…


#1627

Had a wee taster of it at my growler place, was awesome but went for men who stare at oats


#1628

I liked it but not sure I could drink more than a couple. Tasted really cinammony to me.


#1629

A couple?! Half a can was plenty for me.


#1630

How was it? I really want to try this. I mentioned it to my local beer shop last week but I’ve not heard anything yet.


#1631

Stone Cali-Belgique IPA is good :+1:


#1632

It tastes exactly like apple pie. Hard to know what else to say. A love it or hate it beer I reckon.


#1633

I do want to try the apple pie one but I meant Men who stare at oats.

Speaking of which on some Facebook beer forum that I read some people blend beers. Which seems the highest form of beer wankery?

Someone blended The Apple pie and Magic Rock Custard pie. Thoughts on this practice?


#1634

I’ve not really partaken myself (aside from DIPA 4 and 5, where it was encouraged), but I can see how it might work in some cases. Feels like a bit of a waste though, I’d have to be in the right set up with enough samples to make it worthwhile.

When I went to Prague I was interested to see that mixing pilsner and a dark beer was pretty common, went in one bar and loads of locals were doing it, guess it’s just like a black and tan or similar.


#1635

Haven’t had it yet, will report back x


#1636

Pretty sure, brewdog in Leeds were trying to make beer cocktails a thing a year or so ago.

Also, my Uncles from near Liverpool often drink a pint of ‘mix’ which is half a bitter with half a mild.

Personally, would rather just have one beer a time.


#1637

It is good but man it is OATY. Maybe should have got the apple pie


#1638

I do this when I’m at a Youngs pub - usually a Ram and Special or a pint of Mixed. Did it on Friday in fact. Their beer is pretty bland though so it works, and I just like the ritual. Feels old school.


#1639

Anyone up for this?


#1640

Drank this the other day

Quite intrigued by one of the reviews thought it was more on the caramel/vanilla side than the fruity side, highly enjoyable either way.
