    Had a few pints of Zig Zag Stout when I was down in Carlisle last w-end. Went down nicely, not sure who or where its brewed though.

    A couple of pubs in Liverpool sell it, not a bad pint brewed by Milk House/Street I think in Somerset.

    That's a bargain! One of favourite beers and they're practically giving it away!

    Well I did enjoy my two months of sobriety but I just had a Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Wet Hop Ale which was pretty nice. A couple of my friends have been studying for their Certified Cicerone exam so I've been drinking a lot of Belgian and German styles with them lately but I just can't get into them. I've been brainwashed by hoppy beer!

    Had that on tap in the restaurant I was in in Orlando last night and it was really nice!

    Also tried Red Hook, Sam Adams Winter Ale and Blue Moon Rounder all on tap in the past week - a magic alternative to the usual draft pish you once got in the USA.

    Just back from the east coast of the USA. Drank a wide range of IPA's all of which were freaking delicious. Damned if I can remember their names though.

    I kept a note of them all on my phone - some truly lovely craft beers/ales out here.

    Very nice one from Wellington last night. Craft beer has absolutely exploded in NZ now.

    Olde Pelican, which is brewed locally in Florida was very nice - quite similar to a Sierra Nevada.

    Red Hook (brewed near Seattle) was very tasty indeed. Alewerks Pumpkin Ale, Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter and Three Philosophers (Omme Gang Brewery I think?) were all absolutely superb.

    I'll look out for them. Ommegang beers are the only ones I've tasted that you mentioned and I was pretty impressed, despite my general disillusionment with Belgian styles.

    A decent selection of Christmas beers in Wetherspoons Sleigh Bell is my favourite at the moment.

    Went to the west brewery bar before and after the game yesterday. Had a good burger there and really enjoyed the wild west and dunkel beers. Would definitely go back next time I'm through there.

    I used to drink Boddingtons at the student bar (the Watering hole) at Aberdeen uni. Now I'm back in Stranraer I can't find that beer anywhere!

    Went to a beer bar here in Zurich and had some beer from the USA that was comically named (involved a squirrel in the name I'm sure) but was absolutely delicious. A fabulous colour as well.

    Makes one wonder what the **** I was up to from ages 17-20 drinking Carling and Fosters

    Just had a wee look at the ASDA website, some not bad offers on there. I really try to avoid drinking in the house if I can though.

    I know what you mean and a few of my mates are the same but my theory is it's better for all of us (me wife & son) if I'm at home and half pished rather than out and fully pished. Plus its cheaper too :

    Seven Giraffes and Good Times both by William Bros for me tonight. Very nice.

    Got a bottle of spice orange Edinburgh Gin to get stuck into tomorrow.
