Yeah as far as I know (and I don’t know very far) the term real ale was coined as a reaction to all the shitty tasteless lagers and a desire to retain proper keg beer with yeast that, as a result, has a short best before date. Proper ales in kegs that had to be consumed within a certain time, but taste of something. The handpull stuff you get nowadays = ales. And yeah, Jaipur fits into that category (and is also massively delicious).
 
The ‘craft’ beers are generally more like lagers, carbonated etc, but due to better technology or some such they can retain yeast content and be allowed to carbonate naturally rather than pumping co2 into them and they just generally can now be quite tasty without having a short sell-by date. This makes ‘em easy to be shipped around the world and put in bars all over the place, hence why there’s way more tasty stuff to choose from. ‘Craft’ is a shit wanky name for it, but it’s a good thing it exists I reckon.
 
Also Shipyard is very nice. Every Wetherspoons has that and one called Devil’s Backbone, which I like also.

The beer in Belgium is all amazing and would fall into the craft variety I reckon.
 
Menus brought to your table with over 100 beers in to choose from. I was violently ill.

shipyard is lovely, yes
 
and i agree about Belgium! pretty much everything is north of 7%. i had a very bad time after a day on the booze and a large bowl of moules...
 
Kwak is a good one, comes in a sort of conical flask-

Peroni FTW. I never appreciated how nice it is until recently.



strongly agree. if it's a choice between £4 for a flat carlsberg or £5.50 for a crisp peroni... well, it isn't a choice at all really

I'm really into my ales but most of these carbonated ales/craft beers are like drinking perfume and are massively over priced. Some quality recommendations in this thread:

if stella wasn't known but they released it in a 330ml can for 5 quid you'd be loving it. be honest.





When I lived in Aus I had to laugh that Stella was seen as a fancy European import.

There's a similar thread here: http://forum.breakbeat.co.uk/tm.aspx?m=1972196736&mpage=5
 
Was going to mention beavertown.
 
A few of my all time favourites:
 




 
 
But nothing has come close in terms of depth, taste, smell etc. than this:
 

 
If you like beer you need to get your hands on this, fuck all the other schneider weisse's off bar maybe Tap 7. Amazing beer

Trappist beer is saux good. I am fond of Kwak because of its silly name and serving.

If it's described as "craft" or "artisan" it's fucking bellend juice.

Belgo is well worth a visit for the beer menu and moules.

I got sick of the Belgium beer when I was there last. Definitely best in moderation or mixed with lighter beers

Yeah it really is worth the extra that it costs, I always use to presume it was overpriced for the sake of it. My lager of choice recently.

Brooklyn Lager is currently my preferred tipple. They do it everywhere now. That'll do me nicely.




+1. Lovely beer that.
 
There's a Craft Beer pub in Brixton me and a mate went to at the weekend because Wetherspoons was rammed. Full of absolute cunts but some decent beers nonetheless. Went in on this not checking the strength before I ordered it.
 

 
I remember it being a nice beer, but everything after that is a bit of a blur tbh. Can't remember much of Die or Alix Perez's set. Fuming.

Good one in London in Euston Tap, always go there when visiting. Great beer and an awesome atmosphere due to the bizarre setting. Any others worth a visit in that area?

Also Marble Arch pub in Manchester I'd my favourite pub of all time, nice food, decent selection of beers including there own brews which are delicious. The Earl Grey one being my favourite. Love how the floor is stopped as well.

If anyone's ever passing through Sheffield make sure to check out the pub in the train station. 
 
http://www.sheffieldtap.com/, part of the same group as the Euston Tap etc.. 
 
Stupid amount of bottled beers and a load on tap. Recently opened up their own micro brewery too. Plus the setting is ace.

Quite like a normal Ale to be honest.  Some craft is great, some is shit, like most things thinking about it.
 
Brewdog punk IPA is delish

Five points is my current favourite and have spotted it in a few more pubs recently. Beavertown Neck Oil is the one for bringing a few tins to a party. Everything I've tried of theirs has been decent and the artwork on the cans is quite cool.  Yes this is all a bit cuntish and hipster but the bottom line is it's just really nice beer.
 
Lagunitas IPA is also pretty special, Spoons do it in bottles. Think I paid £6+ for a pint somewhere in Clapton recently tho
 
Peroni is nice for a draught lager, beyond 4 pints of it though and it fucks my head up.

Had a Sunday session on Punk IPA the week before last, I didn't make it to work Monday. You really can't session on some of these beers

Drinking strong belgian beer has ruined me.  I now feel a bit underwhelmed when drinking anything under 5%.
 
I used to find the taste of the alcohol too strong in belgian beers but there are a few where you don't notice it so much, and then after a while you just get used to it with the others!
