The Barcelona beer festival this year was fantastic - 360 beers from around the world. Iron Pig imperial Russian stout was amazing, another one whose name escapes me but tasted like drinking a cigar and bacon buttie, plus anything by Wee Heavy (the porters recommended). So many great ones.

Problem is, now traditional lager tastes even more like flavourless piss than before.

Just got back from Milwaukee / Chicago; craft beer scene there is ridiculous. 
 
Had an 11% stout called "Dragons Milk", tasted nice but it was pretty much 3 for 1 per drink. 
 
Lager called Supper Club by Capital Brewery was the shit. Gutted I wont be able to get 10% of them back in the UK now tho

Last time I was in Chicago I found some sports bar showing the NHL play-offs and they had the biggest selection of bottled craft beers I've ever seen. 
 
Come to think of it, why don't we have proper sports bars? Going to watch football 'down the pub' is fucking shit. This place in Chicago had massive TV's on every single wall showing about 20 different games of football / hockey / baseball, etc. They served amazing food (massive plates of food) and as mentioned the beer selection was huge. 
 
Sure beats popping down the shit local to watch the game on a 15 year old 30" CRT with fucking Fosters, Carling and dry roasted peanuts on offer.

Like a good beer festival but hard to not be put off by occasional choices tasting like drains b2b washing up water and having to mingle with fat hairy guys who smell like they've not washed for days b2b farts.

Decided to have a drink tonight. The booze aisle in tesco was alien to me after steering clear of it for a long time, spent ages picking out a load of craft beers and can confirm they were all absolutely rank. The piss head in me wouldn't let them go to waste but must have been pulling all sorts of faces trying to get them down.

there's some reasonably 'normal' tasting craft beers out there - sounds like you picked out some of the slightly weirder tasting ones - what did you go for?

My doctor told me that as well as being completely and utterly disgusting the recent proliferation of completely and utterly disgusting craft beer pubs and in the shops has correlated with a noticeable rise in GOUT cases amongst young men coming in.

Just an utter word to the wise

Drank 6 pints of this on Friday before moving on to bottles of Zwyiec

 
Vaguely remember getting into an argument in KFC after failing to correctly order a zinger tower meal.
Passed out in bed fully dressed with all the lights on.
5 stars would drink again.

Can't remember them all but some were from Redwell, Vocation and Belhaven. Also tried a new Crabbies IPA which was like drinking an alcoholic cream soda.

Bought the Brew Dog Beer Advent Calendar. 
 
tbh, a 14% beer tastes, not surprisingly, shit.

Is that the Coffee and Cigarettes beavertown collaboration one? I tried it the other day and quite enjoyed it tbh. Nice smell. Couldn’t drink more than a bottle of it though

Nah this was something called Abstrakt 20. https://www.brewdog.com/item/1341/BrewDog/Abstrakt-AB20.html
 
Also just got "Hop Shot", which is a tiny 20% beer. Not really looking forward to it after the last one tbh.
