When I was a youngster in Cardiff there was Bitter, Dark, and SA, and that was it. Unless you were a discoor footie boy; they drank Carling. Nowadays? Well, I blame the Americans for everything, because I am a stinking liberal.
But to get back to beers: although there are some silly names, my local Thornbridge Brewery not only does great beer (check out their IPA, Jaipur), but has an American pale ale called Otter’s Tears. My mate liked the name so much he drank about 6 pints last time we were out to see a band. A bit of a bad move as it is 6%.
Any other memorable beer names? They can be imaginary – I will try to work out the real ones.
