#6

why did you go to leuchars


#7

to see my friend who lived there

she is a gardener and i got really drunk and sung kanye west very loudly

i met a good dog


#8

Used to provide IT support to the RAF base there. Never been, obvs.


#9

i also had quite a bad hangover for the train back and remember that meant i made poor choices when selected snacks for the 8 hour train journey


#10

Sounds like a boring Scottish ale… :wink:


#11

obviously? 3/5 of the people in this thread have been, mate

I assume this ratio is applicable across the whole site / population


#12

As much as I love Scottish ale for its clear superiority over English muck, I don’t have a kind word to say about Deuchars. So, so dull.


#13

You don’t get much down here, do you? I mean I’d be happy to try more Scottish ales but there’s Deuchars and I think one other I’ve seen about by probably the same brewery.


#14

No, not really. It’s annoying. My gf is a grudging convert to Scottish beers, so it’s not just me being a jingoistic twat.

Although I will go out of my way to order any Scottish beer on tap, even if it’s Deuchars or by Belhaven, i.e. shite.

I think Spoons does a Scottish beer week, usually around St Andrews day, but then you have to go to a Spoons.


#15

deuchers is alright. safe fall back option.


#16

It’s got all the characteristics of a standard Scottish beer without actually managing to be any good. It’s kind of impressive.


#17

I am okay with going to a Spoons. There’s one up in Highgate village that I think @plasticniki has been to that is basically the poshest Spoons I’ve yet seen.


#18

Lexiter, eh?


#19

i have not


#20

i’ve never been to devon
