If we're talking bottled beers, I do like a nice chilled glass of Thwaites Nutty Black. A lovely very dark mild.

I like quite a few different beers but I'm stingy and not especially adventurous so my choices are restricted to the supermarket shelves, although that still
leaves quite a selection. I think if I had to choose just one then Hobgoblin would be a strong contender

I was in Prague 4 weeks ago and fell in love with a pub called U-Fleku which brewed its own dark lager. It's classified as a Dunkel and I've found a recipe for it but it's beyond my capabilities atm. I looked into similar styles of the beer and the closest I could find to it in kit form is a Bock Beer which I bottled 3 days ago. I'll now experiment with the Bock and see if I can tweak it into something similar.

Real Ale is a rarity in Northern Ireland, a few pubs stock it but most pubs are out of my way. I generally drink Guinness when I'm out and about but I do like to sample new things.

Off licence, I discovered a Dark Chocolate Stout which is delicious and the bottles come in handy for my own brews.

+1 I used to buy a lot of their Joker IPA but I got a bad bottle a couple of months ago, didn't taste right at all, and it kinda put me off. Since then Caesar Augustus is where it's at.

I'm a big brewdog fan, my usual is Punk IPA in bottles but Hardcore IPA and Jackhammer on draught at the bar.
