Been to a beer festival today, I had a go on the Bishops Finger, took on the Village Idiot, slurped the Fox's Nob and fired into Old Rosie. How we laughed, that was until we left, when a jam sandwich was parked 100yds up the road. Burgers £4.50 each and I touched a ladies ferret.
I liked the response from Orkney Brewery when some jobsworth said SkullSplitter should have a warning on the label - they asked what would you expect if you ordered a beer with such a name ?
And it is good stuff, just don't try 2 bottles in quick succession.
I believe they had one in there called Black Sabbath :-)
Also last year I was drinking Comfortably Numb in the Wellington, which did the trick
LOL they most certainly did. That was the first pint we ordered ... it was only whilst it was being poured that we saw it was something like 6.8% .
A good start to the days drinking on an empty stomach . I'm certain the beer helped in making it seem that we were playing The Dutch Duo's total football brand superbly as we 'thrashed' Derby 1-0. Admittedly Derby were p!ss poor an hadn't won a game for nearly a year, but my blurry memory is of us playing fanrtastic football.
Used to get 'Delirium tremens' in one of the pubs in Bevios Valley (cant remember the pubs name, it's the Dungeon now).
Also there was 'Bishops Tipple' (that we hilariously re-named Nuns Nipple), the Frog & Frigate used to brew their own 'Frog' (or maybe 'Frogger'), the strap line was 'one pint of Frog & you'll never frigate'. Also I recall 'Old Codger' & 'Moosehead', (or was that the slappers I got off with at the end of a Friday night after drinking this lot ).
