this seems to be a UKish thing, we don't get Aussies, Kiwis, Canadians, South Aficans or Europeans nostalging about beers and other things back home on the forum..

I just don't understand why anyone would think that which beer a poster used to enjoy when they were back in the UK is of any interest if that beer is not available in HH TONIGHT.
Sorry, but I believe the thread is "The Beer Thread", which actually is pretty broad and encompasses just about anything to do with beer, nostalgic or not.

If you want to discuss what beer might be available in HH tonight, maybe you need to start a new thread, IMHO.

It's not only nostalgia, the craft brewery craze that has been enjoying double-digit growth for each of the last five years, sees no sign of abating. Indeed, a new niche known as the "nano brewery" is gaining popularity and is focused on making just one barrel of beer at a time. With companies like White Labs opening their Yeast Vault, which has been collecting and storing strains of yeast for over 20 years, there's almost nothing that might not be available to drink one evening in HH soon!

BB encapsulates what I thought this thread to be about, beer. Not 'information for forum users about beers available in HH'. Not every discussion has to appeal to you. Feel free to scroll down. :cheers:

The wife brought a six pack of the below back from Laos on the plane a few weeks ago. Tastier than I remember it and I'm wondering if the locally sold version up there is now different than what is sold here, or the "Limited Edition" has something to do with it? In any event it is some tasty beer IMO. :D Pete :cheers:

Given the new laws about advertising on social media, I'm afraid to discuss what I drink.

Disgusting, isn't it? I'm sure if they complain about people's posts to admin, we'll know about it. Pete :cheers: Whoops...I better not use that emoticon any longer. :shock:

Can it be considered advertising if you're getting no personal gain out of it? Wikipedia says: "Advertising is an audio or visual form of marketing communication that employs an openly sponsored, nonpersonal message to promote or sell a product, service or idea."

So I will continue to post away.

Found this I think in Makro (only bought a couple to try a week or so back and not sure where), it has a terrific 'London porter' style taste, very burnt malt flavour, but the beer itself is coloured like a darkish bitter, and is cloudy, which suggests it's unfiltered. Cheaper than the Fullers' London Porter on sale in the supermarkets. I'm very happy. :)

How can I arrange to be there without Mrs. Cameljockey? And is it an expat only event or will I need a kevlar jacket or crash helmet later on? This comment is open for anti-racist complaints now....

We'd be quite keen on going, apart from the music. I'm going to sound like an 'old fart' here, but I go to concerts to listen to music, and beer fests to drink beer. I don't mind combining both as long as one doesn't interfere with the other. I fear that in the land of all noise, the bands will be blasting out their songs (full bass of course) at ear-splitting volume, and I may end up ordering the wrong beer, or not be able to have a full and frank discussion with Mr.VS about the quality of the ale I'm drinking.
