Choose tasty beer…

Choose an off licence. Choose a brewery. Choose a glass. Choose a beer. Choose a fecking big beer. Choose cans, bottles, kegs, and casks. Choose Real Ale, choose Craft, choose Real Craft and life membership. Choose fined, choose unfined. Choose a public house. Choose a working mens club. Choose a New York loft style drinkery. Choose bar snacks and matching beverage. Choose a three piece suite by a plasma screen or a wobbly chair with worn fabric by the fire. Choose homebrewing and wondering who the feck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on your couch watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing game shows, syphoning junk to your mouth from two cans mounted in a ‘beer’ hat. ChooseΒ  a train beer to take away with you at the end of it all, investing your last pounds on an American import, nothing more than the evening deserves, share it with others or drink it yourself. Choose your future. Choose cooking lager . . . But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose cooking lager: I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got taste buds?

    • Exactly. In my opinion, a lot of the negativity currently is minor quibble type stuff (like on Twitter)…and actually these are like-minded, beer loving people saying the same things but from a slightly different perspective. And then there is the politics, the government policy, the media scrabbling around to appease people or sell a paper. And then there is the real life negative side of alocohol which shouldn’t be dismissed, but approached properly and funded appropriately. (Sorry…bit ranty!).

      • No, no! Not at all ranty. The negativity has a place, but the infighting and out of proportion propaganda doesn’t.
        We all love beer, that’s something to be celebrated. Just because you may love a rich, dark as night earthy stout, and I enjoy a pale grapefruit laden IPA doesn’t mean either is wrong. Healthy debate is just that, healthy, sniping and childishness, in my opinion anyway, just takes the shine off and makes it all a lot less fun.

  1. Good work Sir, as someone relatively new to the beery world I really get confused about the rather petty squables that break out. Especially on twitter, although 140 characters is hard to make perhaps a more reasoned argument.

    Thing is there is a world of great beer beyond the fizz and there is something for everyone and everyone is entitled to have an opinion, but we need to get the message out to the fizz drinkers of, Try this you will be surprised!

Please let me know what you think of my post. Thanks.
