    How are you supposed to drink it, surely its gonna have a fair old kick, most water down their whiskey, do you have a large top on it?

    Drink it from Shot glasses - slowly

    Yes it will be ridicules, no its not a substitute for Guinness... its a laugh beer. The kind of thing you get the boys in when half whazzed just before the bell to mess them up.
    Quite like real strong IPAs or similar, wouldn't drink lots of them just one or two to kick the drunken state into top gear.

    Nothing like the TNP's 32% but none too shoddy at a circa 12%

    Ordered a 96 can staycation box from brewdog...

    Down to 99 quid, then 10% off first order and 5% off for shareholders made it about half the price of going a supermarket.

    About 2 weeks in.. 8 cans left, I probably shouldn't keep a stock of beer

    Brewdog is decent but a bit mass produced for me these days. These lads https://www.wyldeskybrewing.com/ have set up shop 5 mins walk from my house and the beer is amazing, best IPAs Ive ever tasted. They also gave me a pump and a barrel a week through lockdown, made life a lot more pleasant

    Look very decent...

    Local to me I have:

    https://www.titanicbrewery.co.uk/

    https://www.beartownbrewery.co.uk/

    Both within 3 miles, titanic grand plum porter is excellent, but so is the smores from beartown. They both rock a good stout

    I'm not a big fan of mixing fruit into ipa, which seems to be a trend gathering speed at the min... although clwb tropicana from tiny rebel is frikin awesome on tap, especially in 15below Manchester, surrounded by 80s arcade machines to play while getting pissed up

    I'm signed up to Beer52. Not the cheapest but a variety of crafties turn up each month different to what my local shops stock and most have been rather palatable. The Trappist from last months batch was sublime!

    Agreed. I've been very much enjoying my subscription. I did a shop order with them the other week too cos I like the stuff they stock a whole lot
