Hmmmm.
Perhaps we should organise a real ale festival to show those on the wrong side of the pond what they are missing.

I think that is an excellent idea Rob. Pity you didn't suggest this a couple of weeks ago, we've just missed Earls Court! OK you UK Seti people, anyone want to meet up at one and take a group pic wearing our Seti Anni Tee shirts?

We do have the Boston Beer Summit. I went for several years, but the price just got to high. A bunch of us from work would rent a 15 passenger van, and get a designated driver. It was a whole lot of fun. There were a few European beers there. Affligem is a Trappist ale I can think of, but a lot was microbrews.

Isn't it always beer o'clock?

I haven't quite got out of student mode yet, 8 years of habitual constant drinking takes some time to shake off.

Beer o'clock is traditionally 12 noon. Well it is in this house anyway.

Sat outside with a pint of Simonator's Best Bitter. Its a rich, amber beer with flavours of nettle and ginger, and light use of Goldings hops in the aftertaste.
Tastes even better knowing that i created it, no other beer in the world is quite like it.

The sun is always over the yard arm somewhere in the Empire.

To my surprise, I am currently enjoying a (relatively) light beer. 4.2 %.

My favourite beer was Tuborg, I was able to get it in Greenland at the US air base Tule. Due to my illness I don’t imbibe anymore.

IIRC Bud (by Anheuser-Busch, Clydesdale horses and all) lost the right to call their beer Budweiser, outside the states. I think it's just plain Bud for quite a few years now.

Reason is there's a Czech Budweiser! And this isn't a case of them trolling or me nitpicking but... I'm originally from the US, have lived in the UK for over 4 years (now living in Greece, but visiting London ATM), been to over 20 countries, and I gotta say, this is my favorite beer:) So put it on your bucket-list and make sure to try this one too!

If the Czech stuff is too bitter for ya then, well... It's the Germans that are the undisputed Kings of Beer on this planet.

I think we had one once, but we seem to have lost it along the way.

Ahh, Theakston's Old Peculier, a fine brew!

This doesn't follow from anything else in this thread, it's just what i happen to be holding.

I'm glad to see there is no Tangle Foot in the box as that could really get the postman into trouble.

That's a full minute of no drinking allowed!
