    Spring visit: Should think Harvey's XXXX Sussex Old Ale would be finished for the season. Haven't seen it yet this year.

    Sorry, but that’s outright offensive - please think before posting.

    I think you should have perhaps made allowances for the provocation before having a go. I am as fed up as you with the use of the term "boring brown bitter", but I am sure that Moby only meant this reponse in a light hearted way.

    It's all too easy to read online postings and think that they're meant more seriously than they are. A conversation in a pub, where one person prefers New England IPA, one likes a raspberry ripple milk shake IPA, one likes a milk stout and one, heaven help him, is into Black Sheep Bitter, takes on a different tone when it's all written down and can be read and re-read by a large online audience. We can give and take offence too easily.

    Personally, I can tolerate almost anything, but the thing I just can't stand is that fruit-salad hop, Citra.

    Ouch. ( note humorous emoji, as in the devil emoji on earlier comment).

    I may have missed it, but have we actually fixed a date for this outing yet ?

    That will be stage two of the process,although we could and maybe should start the discussion.Can I suggest sometime between Mid March and Mid April given that folk will need to book advanced train fares /hotel deals and in 2019 Good Friday is April 19th .

    The venue choice poll closes on 18th Nov.

    I believe not but given that Easter is late it seems to me that there isn't much choice, probably the second weekend in March through to the first weekend in April. I've ruled out the first weekend in March due to not very fond memories of the Beast From The East this year. The second weekend in April would be the one before Easter which might affect rail travel. May would mean contending with Bank Holidays and would be very close to summer.

    Edit: I posted this before swing BF's answer, but we seem to more or less agree.

    There doesn't seem much point in discussing dates until the venue's been sorted.

    Brighton was Friday, 23rd March. Train tickets for 22nd March 2019 will go on sale first week of January, by my reckoning.

    If you're lucky, these tickets are still in a state of turmoil and I've only just got my first tickets for 2019 which are in the second week of January. The venue will be finalised on Sunday and it looks highly unlikely to me that it won't be Portsmouth. For those who need expensive Southern hotels the rapid finalisation of the date could save them lots of money.

    And more importantly actually mean some of us can make it.. My diary for March is already under assault and the first two Fridays are already booked out by my better half who thinks that there is more to life than Ale....
