A neccessary corollary to the 'best beer' thread.

1. Stella Artois draught

2. Ayingerbrau standard

3. Grolsch

Whatever the house bitter is. Usually Courage of some nature.

masonic boom, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

fosters. because i always go in shit pubs that have no beer.

gareth, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

house bitter, hoegarden or stella. If the pub looks busy or likely I might try their handpulls, but that can be risky.

Ed, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

I MUST have a Hoegarden when I get over to the UK. Alternately, I've got to find a shop that sells it in the Boston area.

Dan Perry, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Palm, De Konninck, Hoegaarden + Hoegaardse Das, + if I feel vaguely homesick a pint of Murphy's Stout at the local 'British/Irish' pub; though being surrounded by bulb-picking crusties moaning about the 'bloody Dutch' usually ensures I don't stay very long.

stevo, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Sam Adams, for the reasons Gareth mentioned.

Nicole, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Amstel Light.

Ally, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

warning its viciously expensive and there are better white beers about. Names escape me at the moment. It is mainly a hype drink, although it is getting down to reasnoble prices, at least in some places, although I've heard of £4 a pint which is quite frankly a joke.

Ed, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

hoegaarden in the embassy bar on essex rd is £4. hoegaarden is also shit so...

gareth, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Token real ale(usually disappointing, unless Fuller's pub) or Budvar. Used to drink lots of guinness when no real beer available but have now sworn off it after realising correlation between consumption of the black stuff and unpleasant bowel experiences the next day.

Richard Tunnicliffe, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Budvar &/or Newcastle Brown Ale.

x0x0

Norman Fay, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Hoegaarden tastes like that horrible moment when some shampoo-ey water inadvertently dribbles into your mouth, surely.

stevie t, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

On a hot summers day its the nectar of the Gods. Incidently its often served with a slice of lemon in Belgium + Holland and pronounced something like Who H'Garden.

stevo, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Red Stripe or Amstel Light. But I drink vodka a lot more than beer.

Lesley Higgins, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

I have no particular favorite or standout, actually, I think I'm always trying new ones just to see what they're like. And since I'm not a pub crawler by profession like Tom ;-), there you are. I fall back on Guinness when required, though.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Heineken. Guinness the odd time. Used to drink Harp a lot but it's nasty on the tummy.

Michael, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Guinness is the fail-safe; Newcastle, Goose Island, Stella quite often; and Pabst Blue Ribbon more often than one would wish to admit (too late, but when in a stool-bum bar in the Midwest...)

scott p., Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Corona.

JM, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Rolling Rock.

Perhaps there's a really good reason I hate beer. Like, I'm drinking the wrong stuff?

David Raposa, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Yes, David, cause Rolling Rock to real beer is like Oasis is to the Strokes.... I mean... erm... heh heh. ;-)

masonic boom, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Comparing the Strokes to Oasis? A double-pronged insult, is it not? (Not that I've HEARD the Strokes - I'm still hoping for more of a taste of those Moldy Peaches.)

David Raposa, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

I heard the strokes on Front row last night and they were indeed rubbish.

Ed, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

At home: Beck's.

At a bar: Budweiser in a bottle.

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

And these days: ginger.

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

bottle of bud is definately the classic while out.

amy, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Corona. I guess I like the lime. Heiniken. When I'm feeling cheap and beer-busty, Bud Draft.

Arthur, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Bud Light (gotta support the hometown). Or Honey Brown.

bnw, Thursday, 28 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

the great thing about fosters is we export the thing - nobody in their right or wrong mind would drink that shit in australia, even if they were in the desert and all the koala's piss had dried up. serves you poms right for colonising us i guess.

Geoff, Friday, 29 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

As white beers go, Leffe is a pretty good Hoegarden substitute.

Top Tip Drinkers: Don't mix white wine and powerful decongestant tablets unless you want think you have been chucked out of a bar and wake up the next morning unable to perform simple tasks like having a shower without having to lie on the bathroom floor for several minutes first.

Emma, Friday, 29 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Kronenborg seems to slip down my throat most often - with the Fat Man himself Mr Ayingerbrau coming a close second. Yesterday though had a Grolsch, Cobra and Red Stripe all on tap which played havok with my late doors digestion.

Pete, Friday, 29 June 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Cooking Lagers: Tennants, McEwans, Miller (when in Scotland); Carling (when down South).

Posh Lager: Kronenbourg; Grolsch; Budvar; Staropramen.

Stella guarantees a hangover, Kronenburg almost always does.

alex thomson, Monday, 2 July 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Guinness.

Plus: London Pride, in pubs that serve it. Rubbish overpriced lager, at gigs. Light ale for the price and the Smiths. In cans, Miller - why is it better value than comparable lagers?

I never found out whether Steady Mike forgave me for filling his fridge with Hoffmeister and 'Ship Ale' that time.

the pinefox, Monday, 2 July 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

Black Sheep, very quaffable. Unfortunately probably end up drinking John Smiths smooth due to it's unavailability outside N Yorks.

In Scotland Tennents 70 shilling or Belhaven Best, not that they're the best of course.

Billy Dods, Monday, 2 July 2001 00:00 (twenty years ago) link

I did forgive you, Pinefox - I just didn't want to be *seen* doing it, and thought of as soft on bad lager.

I haven't been out of the house in 9 days (and I've been on chlorpheniramine maleate) - I can't actually remember what beer tastes like. I think Sam Smith's OB tops my chart since I moved to London (before that it was Hoegaarden - 99p bottles from Tesco).

Stella Definately, There is nothing finer!!

Graeme Andrew Allcock, Monday, 15 July 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Smithwicks. It's the Irish beer that's most like an English beer.

DV, Monday, 15 July 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

since going into sam smiths pubs a lot more often i have rediscovered the lovely soverign bitter. cheap, vegan and v v tasty (a bit like me really har har)

katie, Monday, 15 July 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

London Pride - lots of pubs in Oxford serve it. Despite drinking in the Three Goats heads fairly regularly, I have bever noticed Sovreign, prolly coz i head straight for the Extra Stout when I'm there...num num. In about equal quantities after London Pride, I drink Morrells Varsity, Morland Original and Ruddles County. Theakston XB if I'm in the Radcliffe Arms.

The bubbles in a glass of beer exhibit a kind of reverse gravity; they accelerate as they ascend

calstars, Sunday, 13 January 2019 18:58 (two years ago) link

Probably the Lidl weissbier if I'm at home. Guinness in a pub.

Stevolende, Sunday, 13 January 2019 23:22 (two years ago) link

xp

annoying as fuck posts in the style of stephen kinnock's lie dream attempt of eating an orange smugly as poss.

stella, tesco lager, heineken ... anything considered.

calzino, Monday, 14 January 2019 00:45 (two years ago) link

Suddenly I feel like a calzone

calstars, Monday, 14 January 2019 00:58 (two years ago) link

he managed to vastly outsmug you in the course of calling you smug

rip van wanko, Monday, 14 January 2019 01:07 (two years ago) link

was it the beer that got fancy

or was it me
