How are yuuuuu?
« on: February 16, 2011, 01:01:54 PM »
Yup, Scotland......"Glasgo" to be exact. Found a really, I mean really nice place in the Pot Still....

For all you Scotch freaks, this place would be HEAVEN. But alas, since I had to behave I held back, and just enjoyed a cask conditioned Deuchars....... probably the best beer made in the UK...... (I know, I know, that's a sore subject.... all due respect.......)

It is a good beer, but not I feel the best beer brewed in the UK. I suggest wider sampling is in order.

We have a lot of wet. Nothing dramatic, but we do have plenty of wet.

How aire ewe?

Spent 3 happy years in Scotland outside Aberdeen. Drank a fair bit o McCewan's... Which is funny because they obviously didn't mind selling beer to a 12 year old.

Belhaven brewery turned me on to 'real' beers back when I had just turned 21 (six years already! I'm getting old) and I still love their Wee Heavy and Twisted Thistle.

It was a money loser to begin with. We flew it because the City of Bristol guaranteed us for a period of time.... Time was up.
