    I've found a local waitrose (but notmy local waitrose, infuriatingly enough) that sells Sierra Nevada Torpedo for about 2. I'm off to buy them all.

    Just had Little Valley Brewery's Moor Ale from Yorkshire, which unlike the majority of what I drink is actually produced in Great Britain, so I thought it was worth a post. I quite enjoyed it, would suggest people give it a chance.

    Last night I had Kelpie Seaweed Ale from Williams Bros., which is Scottish. It was pleasant, but didn't stand out for me.

    Otherwise mainly drinking Dungarvan and (when I can get it) Hilden, which are Irish / Northern Irish respectively.

    This year's craft beer fest in Dublin is in the RDS (again) from 6-8 September (two weekends away!), so if anyone's likely to be in town, drop me a line and I'll wear a recognisable T-shirt or something. It was very good last year.

    I've had Kelpie and it did absolutely nothing for me but I'm enough of a beer nerd these days that I was glad I tried it. Similarly, I've had oyster stouts which also didn't do much for me.

    Stortebeker Atlantik-Ale.

    I'm on a strong IPA tip at the moment. The pony tailed, beardy guy in the offy recommended this.
    His ears are bollocked because it's an APA. American Pale Ale.

    However, it's beautifully hopped. That's all I ask for ultimately (well, maybe a bit stronger by a % or two).
    Good stuff.

    Best beer ever!

    Fucking is a little village in Austria (the suffix -ing being very common) and Hell is the general german label for "lager".

    Last time I was back in the UK I had a couple of bottles of various Badger ales from the local corner shop.
    I thought they were all pretty nice, and was particularly partial to Hopping Hare
    http://www.hall-woodhouse.co.uk/beer/hopping-hare which does indeed have a nice citrus touch. It seems you can get it in Tesco, so it's probably easy to get hold of.

    Adnams Broadside.

    Everyone's pallet is different and everyone like different things. My best friend and best ale drinking buddy is a Pale Ale type bloke, me I wouldn't go near one. If you can see through it it ain't worth it! Amen.

    I found this ale in a local cheap OffLicence/Wino in their pitiful attempt to cater to the 10 people in my town who buy bottled beer and boy was I happy I did.

    To my knowledge it has only been on tap at my local once in the last couple of years and I phoned above mentioned top ale bloke and sat in there from open to close. Fun times!

    Nice little bar around the corner from me that serves Freedom lager. It is absolute rocket fuel and a lovely pint. I can't recommend it enough.

    Ghost ship is nicer, but Adnams is a bit meh for me. Though might be because it's a standard brewery pub in London, who knows.

    This week I've been narrow boating up and down the Leeds/Liverpool canal.
    The Theakstons Old Peculiar at the Castle in Skipton, Cask Tetley bitter at the White Lion in Kildwick and the Copper Dragon Best Bitter in East Marton's Cross Keys were all superb...for Yorkshire that is.

    Harvest Pale is wot I drink when I'm back home in the UK. Here in Berlin I mostly have Berliner Pilsner or Fransiskaner Hefeweissen, which is a wheat beer. I think someone mentioned it already, you can get it in the big tescos I think.

    Pigging out on Modus Hoperandi at the moment.
    Hoppy, malty and silly priced IPA all the way from Durango, Colorado.

    Loving the Two Tone ska thing going on.

    Loving IPAs at the moment, but one of the best was Full Nelson brewed by Tiny Rebel in the UK.

    I'm a big fan of the real ales! The pubs usually a set selection then a guest beer and they'll give you a taste to see if you'll like it......

    Hey 3 post from Mancunia....The Bar in chorlton has Cannonball IPA on draft at the moment.
    Stupidly expensive but if you're at an age when three or four sends you to sleep then you may as well buy the good stuff.
    It's a fabulous beer.

    Living in Dublin at the moment and am enjoying the Porterhouse range of craft beers available at several Porterhouse locations around the city centre. The drink and food is fantastic in all of them yet Porterhouse North is my favourite as it's the only one that does not rely on the tourist trade and so does not feel the need to assault patrons with traditional Irish music, especially at such at deafening volumes. Worth a visit if in Dublin.

    I've been to 2 beer festival in two weeks, with another next week. I have been drinking many, many fine beers! Today I had a nice 2/3rds of a pint (not sure I get the point of that size, but it was all the cafe/bar did) of Camden Pale.

    Favourite beers in the past few months have been Treasure IPA by Great Heck Brewing Co, and Farmhouse IPA by Magic Rock & Lervig.

    Does anyone else use untappd to track their beers?

    I did until I realised it was realtime and in fact checking your whole alcohol history in a badge-generating frenzy only got me a badge for drinking before lunchtime :/
    That said, when I can remember to use it (same happened with 4Sq etc) I do check in.

    I'm very fortunate in that I'm not far from the CRAFT Beer Co bar in Clapham
    (http://thecraftbeerco.com/pubs/clapham/) and their one in Brixton too. and then there's the new Brewdog in Clapham as well.

    I don't think moving to Clapham is going to help my liver at all

    EDIT:
    Beers drunk recently
    Punk IPA - Brewdog
    Dead Pony Club - Brewdog
    London Lager - Meantime
    London Pale Ale - Meantime
