151603 Ale
Walking around my local Sainsbury's today, i noticed that the section of Ale was twice the size of the lager section, half the price and yet still almost full in comparison to the foul lager.

So chaps, whats your favorite Ale. Pic related, i've been doing it for a week now.

I'm a big fan of the following brewaries: branscombe, butcombe and otter. I also drink a lot of small run local stuff in one of the oldest pubs in the country, they always get some interesting stuff in and will sell you a 1/3rd as well as the more traditional halfs and pints. Its actually a good way to try and get through the entire menu in one night, you will still be absolutely sloshed by the end of it though since the abv% seems to vary from 4ish up to 13...
Incidentally it was the last public house the queen went into (early 1980's I believe!?!)

Adnams of Southwold beers are very good indeed.

I'll often drink Fullers beer, mostly London Pride but since they bought George Gale & Co, sometimes their HSB. A bit lethal though.

Lager often hits the spot though, I see no point in snobbery against it. Good ones like Pilsner Urquell, Budweiser Budvar and Peroni are great. I drink a lot of Stella too, particularly the Leuven variant - there is another one that was around last year that had the blue/white labelling which was good too.

I live near Bury St Edmunds, famous for the green king brewery, so whenever I go out there I have quite a choice.

This stuff is great for summer, nice and light with an earthy after taste and pretty cheap on tap.

But as for all time favourites, I have to say IPA, it's a classic.

London Pride, Spitfire and Tanglefoot are the ones I drink on a more regular occurance as they are on tap at my local. I do however endevour to try as many as I can. There are so many wonderful ales ranging from dark and malty to bright and fruity. Lager, in comparison, is utter wank but I will drink it if that's all that is available to me at the time.

That's a few off the top of my head.

You reminded me of a dream I had last night. I went into a dingy but old fashioned pub and was told there was only lager. 'I don't drink lager', I said, 'it's disgusting'. Then I left.

St. Peter's organic ale is out of this world. A truly excellent beer worth every penny.

I tend to drink pride on the regular as it's widely available on tap. Reckon it's a good standard ale as well. Butty bach is a ruddy lovely little ale that i've got into recently.
Badger brewery do some great ales as well, tanglefoot etc..
And this little beauty in the pic.
From the website ''A refreshing premium ale subtly flavoured with extract of peach. An award-winning 4.5% ABV premium ale, well balanced with distinctive bitterness and a delicate floral peach and melon aroma.'' Best summer's eve ale i've tried.

Yeah, on reflection it was nightmarish. No pumps on the bar anywhere, just some big dark lager box. No sign of any pickled eggs either. I shudder to recall. Let me not think on't.

Suprised no-one's mentioned the best beer in the country, which of course is Timothy Taylor's.

My local brewery is Caines. They do a delightful range of ales, milds, stouts and even some tolerable lager.

But a personal favourite of mine has to be 1698 or Bombardier.

If you're a beer drinker in the Bristol area, you may want to drop in on this lot: http://www.greatwesternbrewingcompany.co.uk/
They're not as trendy as your lot, but it's a family concern making good beer in small batches.

Anything Sam Smith's or Theakston's.

In South Australia (where I live) they all drink Cooper's Pale Ale which is a poor excuse for an Ale.

I like drinking in Bristol and Somerset, lots of good beverages on offer. I generally start off in Severn stars then up to the apple and then out on the town or if we are having a subdued evening we do a half or two in the apple then play chess and pool in the Severn stars. Loves it bauy.

Yes lad! My thoughts exactly.

Luckily I have plenty of Sam Smith pubs near me, being a Yorkshire lad. There's nothing more I enjoy on a Sunday afternoon than a good pint or four of Sam Smith's Extra Stout.

Their Alpine Lager is bloody good too; besides having possibly the best pump image ever conceived.

White lion is my favorite pub, get a Bob or IKB, never go there tho, i dont leave the house anymore.
Noticed all the art fags drinking outside the arnolfini? better than going to syndicate i guess.

I'm surprised there is no love for the Cornish ale in this thread. There are three or four really decent breweries down in the land of Kernow. A couple of smallish local ones, such as Skinner's which produces this amazing concoction - Cornish Knocker. Quite a few pubs around Truro and Helston have it on tap.

St Austell is also available all over the area, leaking out of the North Cornwall Brewery like our Lord's semen itself and then you have 'Sharp's ' brewery which has probably the best ale I've ever tasted under the name 'Doom Bar' it has won so many awards, it is perfectly fruity.

I have a whole shelf devoted to ale bottles, it is quite a specticle, but somehow a bottle of Stella has made it's way into the bunch, which I'm not happy about.

Eh? Yeah of course I know the apples a cider bar/boat. I was just saying I frequent it quite often. There are quite a few permenently empty bars in briz, I sometimes go drinking up the top of Gloucester Road past the Mem if I can't face dealing with people in the city. Severn Stars is my favourite place though because they have a chess set, 4 or 5 real ale and it's close in to the city.

The King William (a Sam Smiths pub), by the Old Duke, is pretty good too.

I'd forgotten about Sam Smith's stuff for a second there... Add that to the list including BBF and Badger. I'll have to try some Great Western stuff.

Just got back from two Glorious beer festivals: One had just 25 types of beer & Cider. But the other - the 'Longest Day Beer Festival' had 127!! It was crazy: in 3 days i sampled about 50 of them. The best ones were 'Proper Job' 'Novo Pruis' (A perry) & 'Honeypot'. They're all fairly local. My favourite one from most supermarkets is Speckled Hen or Good old London Pride.
