    Tiny Rebel have done a trifle flavoured beer and a Jam one .Windsor and Eton have done a jam sandwich beer so roly-poly is okay.All three that I have tried have been very average and the first one was a trifle dull.

    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Aye, well, um, I usually avoid Martin's Tired Blog, a) because he's boring (although not as much as that Paul Bailey bloke) and b) I don't share his odd politics although that's more a Twatter thing. No real surprise about the ill-informed weirdy ticker comment - that only applies to some of us and lucky for him he hasn't met us all.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    I think some kind of barrier has gone up between the people who regularly contribute on this forum and those who appear on the curmudgeon's Beer & Pubs forum. Martin's comments about "weirdy tickers" are one side of it, and the hostility of some people on here about "boring brown beer" are the other side. I think there's only me and Mick who appear regularly on both sides of this barricade, fielding clods of earth and the occasional airborne cowpat; and I'm not saying that we should be trying to establish a sort of peace or brotherhood. Far from it. I like some of the acerbity that forms part of our online dialogue, both here and in the other place; it's the sort of stuff that people who know each other well would exchange over a pint or six down the pub. The trouble is, we're not down the pub, and not likely to be for some time.

    I know some of you guys, and I know some of them. (Though not well for the most part, and I dare say my hackles would rise at some of the political affiliations that some hold, both here and there, which is one reason why I avoid Twitter.) Sometimes I see stuff on here, and I see stuff on there, and I wince. If some of you anti-BBBers could read some of the comments on here through the eyes of someone who genuinely enjoys drinking beers like Bass and Pedigree, you'd wince too. Similarly Martin, who has a great sense of humour and a twinkle in his eye (which perhaps doesn't come across well online), might be rubbing you guys up the wrong way without appreciating that it might be hurtful. We're all pub-lovers, each one dedicated to beer & pubs in our own way; we all deserve respect. OK, I said I wasn't trying to negotiate a peace, and I'm not. Just asking if we could (oh god) try to be a bit sensitive to other people's feelings.

    I'll get me hat.

    What am I saying - I'm at home. Youse lot all feck off out of it!
    Come On You Hatters!

    I'm definitely not in the BBB appreciation society, I don't (intentionally) deride anyone who is although as Will mentions things don't always come across online as intended, I know I've made Will and others probably wince at times. I get on fine with the the others on the other side and vice versa regardless of beer preference and even sometimes in pub types. Regarding Martin he's a great bloke, obsessive in his blogging, three a day in normal times and 99% of the time his comments are very much tongue in cheek, even his supposed obsession with Bass, he drinks and enjoys all beer types.
    Anyway Horses for courses I suppose.

    I don't see myself as being on any side of any barrier. My preferred beers are generally dark but I will and do drink any kind of beer, what other people choose to drink is their choice and none of my business. I dislike the Camra type dinosaurs who think beers must be brown and made with Fuggles or Goldings as much as the lager drinkers who try to put me right about vinegary beer with twigs in, I would rather they all just wrapped up and kept their beaks out.

    I don't have much time for those, whom I consider deluded, who believe for example Bass is the wonderful beer it once was and laud it as such, still that's their opinion and I don't have to drink the stuff. I drank quite a lot of it when it was a good beer. I could say the same about Doombar, Pedigree, Gales HSB, etc, etc.

    I have no problem with Retired Martin, his attempts at humour or his beery opinions but as I said I avoid his blog because I find it boring, I speak for no-one but myself.
