Desert Island Beers
I've always considered the question "What's your favourite beer?" to be unanswerable. There are so many factors affect which beer you like best at a particular time, such as the weather, how you're feeling, what stage of the evening you're at, where you are, etc.
That's where desert island beers comes in. Like in desert island discs you get to make several choices, which is much more sensible as you wouldn't want to be stuck with just one beer. On the radio show they get a choice of eight records, so a choice of eight beers seems a good starting point, though the lovely Lisa sensibly that 12 would be better so a crate could be washed up on the beach each month.
I've only got to seven anyway so far so I'll start there:
1. Ind Coope Burton Ale
2. Harvey's XX Mild
3. Ringwood XXXX Porter
4. Fullers IPA
5. Goose Island IPA
7. Timothy Taylor Landlord
I'll expand on why I've chosen these beers when I get the time. Meanwhile, if anyone has any suggestions for beers I need to add please let me know.
