    Default Triple fff quiz

    Looked up what beers I have had from this brewery and found these ones that seem to have a music theme.Pub quiz style you have 20 minutes to think of the answers and no googling except to check once you have finished the quiz.Honest box so post how many you got right using your brain cells.Shouldnt be hard to beat my figure of seven.

    pressed rat and warthog
    dazed and confused
    midnight rambler
    rock lobster
    hallelujah
    comfortably numb
    little red rooster
    moondance
    ramble tamble
    apache rose peacock
    stairway to heaven
    communication breakdown

    there is also a beer called Trotneys red barrel but don't think that's music themed
    cheers

    I'm doing this without any references, although I did have to smash my head against the wall a couple of times to jog the memory!. I'm sure the ordinary bitter had a musical name when they first started brewing.

    pressed rat and warthog Cream, Disraeli Gears
    dazed and confused Led Zep
    midnight rambler Stones
    rock lobster pass
    hallelujah Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, Alexandra Burke
    comfortably numb Floyd
    little red rooster Stones
    moondance Van Morrison
    ramble tamble pass
    apache rose peacock Real Shite Chilli Peppers
    stairway to heaven Led Zep

    In the 1990s their beers were found in JDWs but not any more. I really think they ought to review their guest ale policy. The price isn't so important if it's all crap.

    Knew all the ones Aqua got plus the Creedence one, Rock Lobster is the B52s. Tried them all with the exception of Little Red Rooster, in addition to Johns list of their musicaly themed beers I've also had Goldfinger ,a cask Lager.

    7 for me, didn't know 3,4,9 or 10 and shamefully got 12 wrong.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    There are a couple of other that I could not see a musical connection but maybe someone can connect the dots or maybe they are just beer names.

    I have had Goldfinger but didn't think much of it.Didnt connect that to music but suppose Shirley belted that one out.
