All I see in the supermarkets are Goose Island, Samuel Adams and Boston Brewing Co, occasionally see Sierra Nevada too. When I go to the specialist ale shops I can get stuff by Rogue, Anchor Brewing Co, Mendocino Brewing Co and North Coast Brewing Co.



I've also seen in the supermarkets, Point IPA and Amber Ale, Blue Fin Stout, Brooklyn Lager, Blue Moon wheat beer and 312. I enjoyed Goose Island IPA ,and will be trying some of the others.


EDIT to my original post - I mean't Brooklyn Brewing Co!

Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout 10% abv
I tried a bottle of this the other week, and I'm usually one who likes strong beer as I think the strength adds extra flavour and body but this was just too much I think. It waqs just too overpowering which is a pity as it really did taste chocolatey under the alcohol. I'd still give it 4 fists though, but a 4 or 5% version probably would have gotten 5 fists.

5 fists - really get the whiskey tang from the barrel it's matured in and still really dark but not too heavy.

A bit plain and not really much going on - 2 fists

Nice and strong stout with a solid after taste.



I've got one of these in, however I'm just not finding the time to sit down and enjoy it properly.

Tried Mastodon's beer yesterday. Very impressed, nice and hoppy with hints of coffee. Doesn't taste anything like 8.3% either. 4 fists.

Not me but could be me with my bourbon choice for the evening. That and a lawsuit - it just doesn't get any better than this!

Let's just say that it is you. Takes away some of the mystery.

Developing a real taste for Deuchars IPA (that's Deu-kars btw).

Off round Leeds midweek any suggestions for decent cask ale pubs? Brief look online shows Mr Foley's cask ale house, The Ship Inn, The Palace, Duck & Drake and Whitelocks Ale House as possibilities.

I have got into whisky recently. I currently have a bottle of Oban and Caol Ila open. Both very nice indeed.

Golf is just an excuse to wear stupid clothes and piss about doing nothing all afternoon, it's as pointless as fishing (although with less killing animals). Whereas whisky tastes and smells nice.

There is a Welsh whisky distillery now, you know. Apparently they're not especially amazing whereas the one English distillery - in moy good owd hum cownty o' Norfolk none the less! - is apparently quite good. So there!

Been on a tour of the English Whiskey Co. and it was actually very informative and interesting - not as good as the Edinburgh Whiskey Experience but worth a visit definitely.

Penderyn - the World's Smallest Distillery TM, I and a friend had some while we were hammered at it still tasted like nail varnish remover. I don't know how much of that is my hating whisky and how much is it being shit. Either way, bollocks to it.

Have you tried Green Spot? It's apparently so difficult to get hold of that it's not clear whether it actually exists. Supposedly very nice though.

Americans and Canucks tend to spell whiskey with an 'e'. I don't think there's clear 'rules' about how different countries spell it because so many countries produced whisky now. India and Taiwan apparently make some very good stuff.

Green Spot's readily available here. At least, my local in Galway has a few bottles on the shelf.

Having a pint of Ginger and Chili Cider, not as bad as it sounds actually, quite sweet and tastes like a flat ginger beer with a very slight chili heat after taste. I do enjoy a Wetherspoons Cider Festival.
