Starting to like The Museum Tavern now I've realised the've a few people there capable of pulling a pint.

They've got two pumps of that Morrissey Fox stuff which I'm not going to have on acount of them coming over like cunts on that programme, but other than that differet guest ales every time I go in - whcih is every night now. Getting pissed sees me through the week in my new digs.

Re: Beer of the day

What are your thoughts on the Osset Brewery's move for world domination - they seem to be taking over shit loads of good pubs and breweries too.

or

Oddbins were doing a special offer on the 80%.

Re: Beer of the day

Glad to hear that.

Was drinking Silver King on Saturday, they do some nice stuff.

Any local brewery expanding can only be a good thing at the moment, with the credit crunch coupled with the governments war on pubs and responsible drinkers.

Much rather go in a pub with a Taylors or Copper Dragon sign outside than any other.

Jut looked on the website and obviously they're all over Halifax, Hudders way whcih is why I've not been in one.

Black Bull, Liversedge

Rat & Ratchet, Huddersfield

Three Pigeons, Halifax

Shepherds Rest, Sowerby Bridge, Halifax

Travellers Inn, Hipperholme, Halifax

Shepherds Boy, Dewsbury

The Riverhead Brewery Tap & Dining Room, Marsden, Huddersfield

The Drop Inn, Elland, Halifax

The Tap, Ossett

Fernandes Brewery Tap & Bier Keller, Wakefield

White Horse, Emley

The Silver King, Ossett

The Albert, Keighley

I'll have to make the trip out to one of these over the Christmas period.

Gore - not had the 80 shilling stuff, but just been on the Caledonian website and I'm a broken man, one of my favourite bottled beers was there Edinburgh Strong Ale that used to be available from Tescos a few years ago, it looks like they've discontinued it. Bloody lovely it was.

Re: Beer of the day

Not had either.

They have some great beers in the US though. I'd love to do a beer tour over there, like that wine film one with the two fella's who's name escapes me, but with beer.

Got hooked on it when working in Edinburgh, they used to sell it in frozen glasses. Marvellous

You can get the Marstons in El Corte Inglis -2.50 Euros for 500ml mind

Re: Beer of the day

Not sure what to get as my christmas beer - my selection is limited to the range at Morrisons, Landlord is favourite at the moment but if anyone has any strong recommendations I'll test them out first. The Adnams Broadside is an option though it's a bit heavy to have more than the odd one here and there.

Once got completely twatted on Sierra Nevada in a pub in the west village. They served it chilled. Ended up in a german restaurant round the corner called liederhosen on bitberger afterwards. Funny place even the drag queens were drinking steins. Top beer that Sierra Nevada on draft.

Try the Marstons its a bit stronger, but really nice drinking.

Re: Beer of the day

If you like Guinness, give Nog a try - if you ever see it - a Norfolk speciality

They flog Copper Dragon in that little pub near the canal by Thrsostle's Nest, LS18 - lovely

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a great pint too

Re: Beer of the day

Tonight I am mostly drinking Veltins Pilsner.

http://www.lemarkbbc.com/images/bottles/485_Veltins.JPG

£9.49 for a case of 12 from the fridge from Oddbins.

I know this isn't the wine thread but I also bought some excellent Syrahs and Shirazes.

Good stuff is that, I've sang it's praises before, but no more than two at a time before moving onto something a bit easier on the belly.

The Abbey?

A nice Summer's day beer walk is starting in Rodley, pint apiece in the Owl and Barge both of whom have a selection of decent real ales, walk onto the Abbey for a couple, then another bit of a walk onto the West End at Kirkstall, who have 2 or 3 decent real ales on....and Old Rosie Cider yikes

Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity; not a bad record for this vicinity
