The only problem with UK beers and that is the price of it! Currently I'm in the south near Brighton with the B33 and paying £3.80 for a pint of Iron Horse! Lovely stuff but who can afford three or four pints of that? Selling a bike is NOT an option!

now then LJ you need to move to a more moderate part of the country (pun there somewhere)
yor price watch set me thinking, when I started to imbibe we three mates use to drink Export at our local at 1/3d (LSD)a bottle on my laddies wage then I could have bought 143 bottles of the stuff a week if I didn't need other stuff to live, a four pack of (admittedly probably inferior stuff ) can be had for  5.00 - £1.25 a can, so even on my pension I could buy 201 cans a week.
All sort of other things to consider though (pubs v supermarkets - quality as I said )

just to end on a note of contention with a couple of things I've noticed whilst propping up the odd bar   - proper beer is brown in colour - comes in glasses overflowing with a creamy head and allows the drinker to count how many gulps he took to down it by counting the rings the head leaves on the side of the glass every time it is put back on the bar.
And if the barmaid pulls the pint with the pump handle protruding through her hand she's single, if she holds the pump with her hand covering the top of the handle she's married

 Bill yer a worry, is it the beer? or too much of that 'decimal currency'??
 e- I hear you there, at a comparatively young age I realised that dumb stuff like dancing on the verandah rail isn't such a good idea(under certain circumstance), and even now I seem to be the one who the drunks like to befriend, but compared to the exploits of most I come in contact with, I'm priddy sedate....!

 Muskie, I'll have to get one of those piccies, not your missus, but maybe one of a house-brick or somethin' equally un-inviting, and my beeza on the other side

Not unless egg fried rice dowsed in soy sauce that I buy in Berwick can be called a roast beef dinner.

OTOH after a few Newcastle browns you might not know the difference. - Nuky Broon no longer made in Newcastle, it's a strange old world

 So using that logic, given that Guinness is brewed here in Oz under license,it's ours.? ->except for that pus in the tin cans...!

Calling Fosters beer is a contradiction in term and definately breaks the sale of goods act !! sorry bill could never get along with nuky brown ,too sweet ,my lad was at uni in Sunderland and I did enjoy some (read lot's) of other good beer up there .
 Dutch we may be related vis-a -viz dancing along balcony's ,in London theres a pub called the "prospect of whitby " back in 1966 when the world was young ,well I was ,only 16 at the time, a friend and i danced along the edge of the balcony ,we were absolutely steaming until I looked down at the Thames, below, about  40 Ft ,sobered up pretty quickly and was back on the floor rapidly. Never liked heights since ladders etc strange but don't mind flying ,hang gliders,fixed wing gliders and small aircraft wonderful but ladders and roofs not a chance!
Down here in Merseyside real ale is now well catered for ,if you look ,plenty of rubbish ,my old local used to have 3 guest bitter  beers plus 2 regular bitter , black sheep and tetleys  plus the best pint of guinness around. Still mourn the passing of so many local brews Threlfalls, formby ales, walkers, higsons now Cains ,if you ever see Cains formidable try it wonderful falling down water , Wrexham lager to name but a few, can even remember when Boddingtons was a good beer, anyone in north Manchester is Robinson's still around?

Must have given you the wrong impression Bob, I don't drink it either, I like a stout Guinness or as stated Old Peculier and for a beer I've never had a bad pint of John Smiths

Must be a better pint over your side Bill over here its usually so cold it freezes your tonsils if nothing else! Suffered over here from the old adage "courage ,takes courage to drink it " but each to there own , I'm sure we'd find common ground whatever was on sale. say guinness for instance best wishes BobH.
