    Done four pints of it Watching West Ham lose. Good gear if you have no wish to get drunk. Hope my local keeps it on for a while

    The cornershop don't stock it but thornbridge St petersberg made a big impression on me when I had it on tap a couple of years ago

    Don't think I've had the one. Is it a Baltic stout or summat?

    Think they called it Russian imperial stout? It was well mice and about 9% I have seen it bottled at utobeer. I bought some as a gift for a French lad to prove England has nice tasting things

    Thornbridge is where Martin Dickie worked after doing a brewing degree at Heriot Watt and before starting Brewdog.

    Weirdly, Brewdog publicity bumpf doesn't mention the Heriot Watt degree or the apprenticeship at Thornbridge and gives the impression that he was a self-taught homebrewer who came from nowhere to give the brewing world a punk-fuelled kick up the arse.

    There's a lot of piss taking about the way Brewdog bang on about being punk-as-fuck while shifting shedloads of beer to Tesco and Wetherspoons, but I think there's actually a lot of Malcolm McLaren to them...

    Let's face it, running basically any sort of business is pretty un-punk.

    that sounds lush. currently feeling extreme ambivalence towards most beer, so if I could find that somewhere in London it would be much appreciated.

    ^Slight correction to my correction: it is *fairly* sweet, I suppose, but not cloyingly so. No idea where you'd find it in London.

    It's also a shockingly civilized 4%, so handy as a lunchtime pint or if you're driving. Assuming you can find it somewhere, of course.

    There are loads of good ciders around at the moment, so isn't it about time "craft cider" became a thing? I mean, just something that people look out for a bit more often, and consequently something pubs/bars sell more frequently. Actually 'Spoons often have some good ciders in a row of boxes behind the bar these days, as well as in bottles.

    Had a cheeky lunchtime pint today. Well, half-litre bottle. Pure UBU, quite a nice drop. Was a bit put out by the barmaid asking me if I wanted ice. Is this a thing now? Iced beer? Jesus wept.
