I'll try and remember that next time the subject comes up. The point really was that the traditional beer of the British is ale, and not lager, which is fine when consumed in most European settings, but awful when served up at home. Because it's a poor imitation of real lager and served too cold to deliver any kind of genuine flavour profile. Drinking it from a can just makes things worse. True Brits drink real ale at room temperature.

Which is a mile away from what we ought to be considering. Which is the Congress investigation into the Jan 6th riot and who knew what and when. I have little doubt Trump will continue to pressurise people to refuse to co-operate and hide behind "executive privilege" and the "5th", as he has done so far, to delay and obfuscate. It's his style, along with establishing plausible deniability. The important thing though is to ensure this is all kept alive in the minds of the US electorate and not to allow the passage of time to whitewash him.

Not so clearcut anymore. There was a debate about room temperature and chilled for decades. I prefer ale cellar cool, rather than actively chilled. Here is a CAMRA piece on it. I remember when ale was dying out. It's one of the few positive things in life that it made a comeback. I think both Wisbech and Stirling will enjoy this article. I want a beer fridge now, fully stocked. I'll make do with a bag in the shed. I quite like the Aldi and Lidl ales, my favourite in England was always Spitfire. You can sometimes get that in Tesco's or Lidl here too. Totally off topic but I feel it's worth it.

It does speak to the prepper in me.

However, when it comes to booze I'm about as embarrassingly unsophisticated as it gets.....frigging sweet tooth JD merchant.

If the Republicans do actually win in 2024 I can definitely see both Dr Fauci and General Mark Milley going to jail.

For a change of pace Heather beer is lighter and quite refreshing. In Scotland Innis & Gunn lager is nice and Iím quite partial to Blue Moon. Some say itís girly beer but at 5.4% itís manly enough for me these days. Had a few wild nights on Oyster Stout and one on Bohemia Regent dark lager which was eventful.

I've had them all. The Porterhouse is an Irish chain bar that invented Oyster Stout. I used to like it, there was one opposite my house for years. I'm not keen on the Blue Moon, I've no idea why it has a celery taste to my mind. It reminds me of the terraces and the celery song. Innis and Gunn do one fermented in whisky barrels don't they? Bloody strong stuff. I had two brother in law's (one dead now) who were real ale drinkers and they fed it me since young.
However, in my defense I sometimes like a few pints of the cheapest lager, or Guinness, I'm not set on anything in particular. Basically,if it has alcohol in it, I have drunk it. I have Scottish ancestry so that probably explains it. My grandad was a Highland Scot.

Blue Moon is a bit orangey/sickly for a session but OK for a few pints.
Better than this stuff -

On a more drinkable level Traquair do some nice winter ales but theyíre a bit strong for
a night out.

You found one I haven't had. There are so many now though. I told this story on HOL years ago, but I'll bore you all again.
I went down my local in England between Christmas and New Year. They had a Winter Ale called Twelve Days. I drank maybe seven and was feeling a bit tipsy. I stepped outside. I lived about a mile away up a hill. Once I hit the air, I basically puked and collapsed. I proceeded to crawl home. I got home, there was a party in my living room, I still couldn't stand and crawled to the toilet with my head resting on the edge. A couple of pukes later and everyone laughing at me - and off to bed.

A couple of days later I went back to the pub. I said I must have had a bad pint. The barman asked how many I had? I said maybe seven. He laughed his arse off and showed me the tap. It was 12% stuff.

Ha ha, nice one. Reminded me of when one christmas last day at work, I pulled a nice office girl in the pub, spent all afternoon downing pints, then she said lets go back to her empty office. We went outside-it was the master gunner at st pauls-and the air hit me over the head- I went dizzy, could hardly stand- and had to walk off while still standing before i was crawling- never saw her again-or at all!

Oh well, we can only dream. I went back with one once, up in Donegal, as we were in action, so to speak, I had to turn, run to the window and puke out of it. I guess what's worse is that we carried on. Happy days! If you really want to drink, try Donegal. They drink pints with a 'wee one', which is whiskey and a small jug of water. The hangovers are averted by starting again in the morning. Not for the faint hearted.
The Master Gunner a pretty famous place I think. One of the real old pubs. Not the cheapest but not expensive, seem to remember drinking one of the Bristol Ales in there, Bat something.

Trump says he's never touched alcohol. At least if he was a heavy drinker, that might be some sort of excuse for his mad behaviour. When you look at Trump now, I just think that sobriety can do terrible things to a man
