With the rise of the micro breweries, IMO there's never been a better time for the beer drinker. There's a lot more choice than there used to be for the beer drinker to try and I thought that it might be a good idea to get folks to recommend any beers that they've sampled to fellow members.

I'll start the ball rolling on what I hope might be a useful thread, with a really nice beer that I drank after the England v Italy rugby match on Sunday.
I bought two bottles of St Peters Organic Ale from Sainsbury's at £1.60 p each and as a result, this brew now currently stands  as being one of my favourites and the bottle design is unusual too.  

I don't suggest you obtain it from this source but here it is.

We are spoiled for good country pubs round here.
But this is one of my favourites http://www.blackbullfrosterley.com/

It's like stepping back in time   and great to stop off after working the dogs.

I love the Golden Plover, Pennine Pale and Wolf, all from the Allendale brewery.

watch out for the Wolf

I like St Peter's, it's on sale in several of my local pubs and bars and it's brewed 30 odd miles down the road in Bungay, but the organic ale "Don't arf make I fart"

Currently I have a taste for the localish brewed Pale Ales, especially those made using Mosaic hops with particular favourites being;

Adnam's (Southwold Suffolk) Mosiaic PA and Explorer Golden ale

Woodfordes (Woodbastwick Norfolk) Wherry and Reedlighter

Redwell (Trowse, Norwich) brewery's West Coast Pale Ale.

Green Jack (Lowestoft Suffolk) Rising Sun Pale Ale

Lacons (Great Yarmouth) Heritage Pale Ale

Milton's (Cambridge) Irene Pale Ale.

Never been a problem for me Gareth. Might be a problem for the people around me but not for me.

If we're to keep this thread going and for it be of benefit to members, perhaps we should say a bit about the beer and how they tasted etc.

Bit of a hike for you though Mo ?

Meanwhile, back in the pub.  

Last night I walked down to the local and had a couple of pints of this company's Bog Standard Bitter and very nice it was too. At 3.6% abv it wasn't too heavy. Some of their brews are way too strong for me.

The only other options are one down near Ulverston, which is also a long way, or a big commercial abattoir which we don't want to use.
As you say, lovely people.

We have also been tipped to the one in Hawes which is also supposed to be good for 'ones and twos' but that involves long, narrow winding roads. We might nip over and have a look this year and avail ourselves of some smashing fish & chips while we're there

I'd love to be able to buy you a pint one day Dave.

Karen and I are going to be taking a walk to the pub this very evening.

The Ruby Rooster?
Strictly on you behalf you understand, this evening I'll be sampling a pint of this cheeky little number in front of a cosy log fire. Made by The Hatherwood Craft Beer Company and priced at only 89p from Lidl, it would have been rude of me let such an opportunity pass me by?
Hopefully, the low price of this particular beer wont represent too much of an insight into its quality and taste
