    I'm afraid my contribution to this thread will be limited for quite a while.

    Ringwood -- Razorback (bottle)
    Five Points -- XPA (can)
    BrewDog -- Elvis Juice *(bottle and can)
    Purity -- UBU (bottle)
    BrewDog -- Nanny State (can)

    BOTW goes to an old favourite BrewDog Elvis Juice,and I expect this will become a regular until I expand my sourcing of beer.

    Pubs were closed before I could get to 'em.We'll have to start to think about bottles and cans I suppose.

    West Berks Full Circle
    North Yorkshire Temptation
    Lincoln Green Arrow
    Pitchfork Old Slug
    Facers Abbey Blonde
    Hereford Original Bitter
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Salopian Whirligig (last pint in a pub)
    Great Heck Blonde ( takeaway from The Alfred )
    Facers North Star Porter (as above)
    Vocation Life & Death

    BOTW is Salopian Whirligig, easily sailing through the five pint barrier on the closing night of the Waggon & Horses.

    Next week will be far more predictable.

    An old favourite as BOTW, Oakham Bishops Farwell. Still available on cask but as a takeaway - not sure for how long.

    I received a very detailed reply when contacting them about the suspended online shop... I'm not able to insert the extract as a word doc..?

    In this instance it was from a bottle,maybe the greater volume tipped the balance over the contents of the can.

    Great info. on the Oakham situation,thanks

    A bit late and obviously based on bottles and cans. Aldi are currently knocking out a range of craft beers, several brewed by William Bros and they seem pretty good. Reasonably priced at 0.99 - £1.29, as well.

    Saltaire - Citra. (b)
    Acorn - Old Moor Porter. (b)
    William Bros. - Klute. (c)
    William Bros. - Hacienda. (c)
    Freak Aleworks - Phantom Pale Ale.

    THe PPA just shaded it. Made with Citra, Mosaic, Topaz, Ella and Galaxy, it's not particularly complex, but very gluggable.
