Now, this email did seem like a general copy and paste job, as it appeared in a lot more popular blogs recently. It’s amazing how a plugin, marketed correctly, can catch the imagination of the (shudder) blogosphere.
Either that, or we’re a bunch of Alcoholics.
So, leading from that. What is your favourite poison? Mine is Boddingtons, but I love Real Ale too and foreign lagers. It’s because I’m a bit of a snob – they just taste better than commercially released piss weak lager. It’s like the difference between a proper cuban cigar and an exhaust pipe, or the difference between Leo Tolstoy and The Sun. Therefore, I love real ales, and when it comes to Real Ales – I have two favourites.
The first is Great Orme’s Brewery “Orme’s Best”, a cracking ale based locally in Conwy. I’ve yet to find the Brewery, but if they do tours I’m interested. Truth be told, if I was to pick one beer to drink for the rest of my life, it’d be this. It’s light yet not fizzy, and very very tasty – and well liked for anybody who likes beer. If you’re ever in North Wales, I urge you to try it.
The second of my favourites is Rebellion Ale. Guy introduced me to it on my trip down to Marlow last year, and they brew three ales – Red, White and Blonde. Red is the dark, fruity, traditional ale, white is the sweet continental style ale, but the real cracker is the blonde. It is a lager like in colour, and cool crisp and fresh. A very good starting point for those who want to try something a little different.
So, they’re my favourite tipples, what are yours?
