New age beers

Postby chalks on Fri Jul 27, 2018 6:52 pm

Seeing as Crouchie touched on it in the GD.......

I love picking a few new IPA’s when shopping. Goose IPA ticks all my boxes and is my ‘goto’ beer of choice, although had Punk IPA on tap in a micro pub the other night and it was superb

So, what tickles your boat?

Oh, and we can chuck g&t in this thread as well, seeing as I’m sat here with a Hendricks with Mediterranean fever tree tonic :thup:

Some of these new bevs are far too citrus for me, almost like they are trying too hard to add flavour and its all artificial

I agree Punk IPA is decent, but very difficult for me to get here, however, a Portuguese brewery, Super Bock, has just launched a very nice 6% IPA and it's marvellous, so that'll do for me. :wink:

I'm a big fan of this :thup:

Came across a Sierra Nevada California IPA on tap in a snooty pub up in Hampstead...£6:30 a pint...and worth every penny!

Lovely citrussy flavour which I prefer in an IPA, ridiculously drinkable.

I find that most IPAs remind me of licking the sticky bit of an envelope.

Having said that, someone bought me a mixed slab of Beavertown tinnies, and a couple of those were nice. The design of the cans was a bit try hard though, I felt like an estate agent on the pull.

Nothing wrong with old age beers, IMO. Two pints of mild, please, and some peanuts off one of them cards with a photo of a dolly bird with her shirt potatoes out.

Yes, nice to sup when it's hot.

I went to a little village in the back end of nowhere in Portugal a couple of weeks ago and the toothless feller behind the bar cottoned on that I was English and treated me to a couple of rounds of Portuguese 'English' beer.

Maldita Barley Wine, it was. Tasted like toffee cake, made me genuinely fall backwards off my chair and crap like a relaxed pony the morning after. Not so much New Age, more like sewage.

Put me down for a couple of crates, and then put me down.

Great thread!

Loose Camnon Red Rye

Stroud Breweries Budding or Old Tom, Black Cat is great if you like Stout.

Gloucester Breweries for a cloudy Pale Ale.

Magic Rock do a great coffee beer and Stout.

Sorry most of my favourites are from around here, you'll all have to come to the Shires!

Gin might need its own thread!

I found a decent IPA over there along with the bock IPA.

There was also this great bar/brewery in Fusetta.

My go to beers are all Brewdog.

Punk IPA is gorgeous and is under 4 per cent I think.

Rio pointed me towards Elvis Juice which is also lovely.
