    Default Best beer names

    I don't know if we already have one of these threads, but I don't remember it.

    We were in The Baum and I ordered a pint of the brilliantly named The Messiah Is My Citra from Manchester Brewery.

    Then a spooky thing happened, Love Spreads by The Stone Roses started playing on the Spotify background music.

    (If you don't know it you'll have to look it up)

    Cue Twilight Zone music.

    I did ask Jon if he had a switch on the handpump, but he denied it.

    Anyway my vote for the best beer name in ages, Manchester Brewery The Messiah Is My Citra.

    Both amuse me.

    I looked it up, and now I know what you were getting so excited about. I'm glad I did, because up to the point where I read the lyric "The messiah is my sister" I was seriously thinking you'd lost the plot.

    I still think Bitter is a good name for a beer.

    I had a beer by Howling Hops at the Southampton Arms last week, called We Buy Teeth 5.5%, an American Brown ale. This may be heretical, if so you can burn me at the stake, but I think some breweries need to spend more time on their beers and less on thinking up hip names for them. *Searches for burning-heretic-at-stake emoji. Settles for chortling devil*

    One that always springs to mind, although maybe niche, is Yubberton's Goldie which has the tagline "Timeless Pale Ale".
