What's Your Favourite Tipple??

Recommended Posts

I drink a lot more Cider now than I ever did .

As I mentioned in the thread about the minimum unit price rise is one done by "Bargain Booze" is called Amber Harvest, costs around three and a half quid for three litres . Mighty fine !

By the way , Iv'e just heard that "Bargain Booze" now have 600 stores open nation wide. I remembser when they had just one ! It was just up the road from where I worked in Elworth (Near Sandbach) they had a bit of a wharehouse there too that suplied their next shop.

Nowt to brag about, but it's not a bad success story in just 14 years.

:) I used to love a tipple: whiskey and soda (my favourite) but just recently, due to a long- going ear infection, I've had to: "wotch it!" :mellow:

Don't 'Wotch it', it's not going to do any tricks, better just to 'drink it'............................. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Believe it or not, Shippos used to be my favourite, both mild and bitter. For a take out I loved Shippos Nut Brown ale in the quart bottles. I still have two bottles but alas, no brown ale :(

It's traditional to knock Shippos and in fact I used to do it too. That is until a real drinker taught me the difference between a good beer and pasteurised, flavourless, gassy Keg beers. Shipstones Ales are a good quality genuine British real ale. They had the contract to supply beer to the British overseas forces in Victorian times too.

Was it the original IPA= India Pale Ale, brewed & bottled in such a way that it would 'travel' without spoiling, unlike most other ales?

That is correct Paulus - it accounts for the additional hops, and higher alcohol content, that acted to help sterilize and stabilize the beer for shipping. The name derives from where it was originally shipped to!

I really am not much of a drinker, never have been. Nothing against it, but don't like the taste of beer, spirits etc. If I have a glass of wine [and 1 makes me tiddly] it has to be German white, as it's not as dry as others. When we go out to eat every Friday night with our friends, I drink tonic water. How boring is that, but I like it and it's not as sweet as pop. When we were courting my hubby and I, I'd drink bitter lemon. He reckoned he married me cos I was a cheap date!
