Brings back some mental memories. We used to find it great fun trying to drink it straight from the bottle.

Hobgoblin and Leffe are my faves. I like a Speckled Hen, Doombar and Bishops finger too. Not the gold ones, they're all rank.

Exmoor Beast is nice if I'm feeling dark.

Pretty label too :3. Dunno if they count as craft really.

Your choice is probably more pure :) was sad Hobgoblin got bought out and made weaker. Thankfully it doesn't taste too different.

You're very organised :D No Leffe in the beer cupboard here yet. Have got some Humbug I never got round to trying last year though!

Thank you :) tried to be a bit more festive but it's quite small.

Wychwood is my home town brewery, the tour is great :)

Cask Hobgoblin was actually brewed to 4.5% prior to 2003 so you could say that is the original strength. When Refresh took over it was increased to 5% for a number of years before reverting to 4.5%

Note that the bottled Hobgob is still the full fat 5.2% !!

Yep. I used Old Peculiar in my last beef & ale casserole. The meat went very tender.

Could have sworn it was 5.5% in the early 2000s:

I work in Witney. The tour is ok. Disappointing that the shop is more expensive than supermarkets.

Ringwood's tour is much better (another marstons brand.) they give a lot more samples too.Would definitely recommend.

I guess you can't blame them as supermarkets can afford to sell cheaper. It's a nice little shop though.

As you suggest really need to check out more brewery tours!

If you are into your cider I would recommend Blind Pig. I believe they are made by Heineken and come in 3 flavours.
Bourbon and Blueberry.
Whisky, Honey and Apple.
Rum and Pear.
I recommend them if you fancy something different, currently available in Tesco.

Spingo Special or Extra Special winter brew (preferably draught from the Blue Anchor Helston)...

Check out the Black Isle Brewery, near Inverness. They do some cracking ales. Black Isle Blonde being a definite favourite.

Can you get this here? I had it in Houston/Austin a few years ago and it was lovely, not managed to spot it in the U.K. Though

There are a hell of a lot of good Scottish beers to be had-Black Isle brewery, Arran Brewery, Williams Bros. Caesar Augustus is a lager/IPA hybrid that goes down far too easily...

Not sure it's technically a craft beer but I absolutely love this stuff:
