Real Ales & Home Made Brews!

Post by 34017 Ilfracombe on Tue Jun 16, 2009 12:14 am

Because Admin, has twisted my arm. Here is a thread on Real Ales, and Home made Brews.

My favourite real ale is tribute, from the St Austell brewery. A real nice nutty flavour. Im very keen now in sampling real ale at festivals, especially now that I havent work to worry about. Another real ale I like is Tallyho, similar to tribute.

I am going to restart brewing my own again, which I did in the late 70s, and early 80s. The trouble is it goes so quick, and the Crisps/Nuts go just as quick. Very Happy Very Happy

Are you into real ales, or brewing your own?

I don't have to twist you're arm!! Razz

You do a fantastic job of that yourself! I know how much you like you're tribute!!

My favourite is and always will be "Spitfire"

If you're going to be brewing you're own - You might end up having more guests than you can handle! Laughing

Well, Admin, I see you have a Bulleid Beer at the top of your list. Wink In the same vein, I would to add the following two offerings from the Cottage Brewing Company:-

"Golden Arrow" (4.5%). The pumpclip features an un-rebuilt in Southern Livery and the regalia.
"Merchant Navy" (4.7%) with an illustration of rebuilt MN 35014 on the 'clip.

"Jaipur" from the Thornbridge Brewery is a fantastic golden coloured ale - but beware! At 5.9%, an overindulgence can lead to you tearing a page out of your diary! drunken

I've never had a bad beer from the Dark Star brewery either, and had a couple of pints of their excellent "Summer Meltdown" (4.8%) by way of Stress Management Therapy after work yesterday! Laughing

Roll on August 4th - I've got a ticket for the Trade Session at the GBBF at Earls Court!

Is there a beer called "Bulleid" then? 34017 Ilfracombe has "Manston" ale.

We tried "34059 Sir Archibald Sinclair" at the Bluebell. That was a very good point! Went down very well. But i'm intrigued to try this "Bulleid" Ale? Wink

I'm not quite sure, but I think it might possibly Shepherd Neame? Maybe 34017 Ilfracombe can help you out on this one?!

I know Sheps have set up their own micro brewery within the main brewery complex at Faversham, but I would have thought it more likely to have been one of the local independent brewers - there are three at Horsham alone:-
Hepworth & Co.,
W.J.King & Co.,
Weltons.

After all, the K&ESR source their bottled ales from the Rother Valley Brewing Co at Northiam.

I'm pretty sure the Ales at the Bluebell such as "34059 Sir Archibald Sinclair" comes from Lewes?
Although Hepworth & Co sounds very familiar...

It sound feasible as well, if their address is anything to go by:-

The Beer Station,
Railway Goods Yard,
Nightingale Rd.,
Horsham,
West Sussex RH12 2NW.

And they produce a bottled beer called "Pullman"

I like Pullman - Saw it in Tescos the other day and for £1.91 a bottle in there and being that Tescos don't make a huge amount on Alcohol, I get the feeling the Brewery are making a killing!

34017 Ilfracombe! Get you're brewery up and running! I'll be you're manager! I'll try not to drink the profits! Laughing

The Beer Station - I think that is absolutly brilliant!! Laughing
