Only ever drank it Sheffield whilst at uni

Same here. Not my favourite but if it was that or Stones I drank Wards. Favoured the Tetley and Draught Bass pubs

Had both a tetleys and wards pub nearby

Much preferred the tetleys 

Plus landlord was a big Wednesday fan and used to get players drinking in there 

Had some great stories about John Sheridan and David Hirst

Caffrey's caused me some absolute write offs in the 90's.

 

Caused my dad to have a lazy eye and only time he’d ever take my mum on when he’d been drinking that :D

Aye

The advertising slogan was "a storm is brewing"

They weren't wrong

West End on Glossop Road was the tetleys one. The wards one escapes me

Can’t think what the other pubs around there were. Went in the West End a lot as the ale was good

if you are still alive in 30 years time , you will be saying how much you were conned by craft beers , same as craft gins

put loads  hops or fruit in it   to hide the inconstancy of the product

Newquay Steam in pop top bottles (grolsch styles).

When I worked in Newquay in 76 for the holiday season, it was Tuborg Lager in the pubs what was called Steam, some innovator picked upon the word and started producing his own brand.

But he's right.

These ales using the citra hops to make them grapefruity etc are masking the fact that it's not great beer.

Looked after properly, you can't beat traditional real ale.

Or maybe tastes change from generation to generation and people of a certain age don't want to embrace that

I drink both so am happy either way.

Is that not a bit harsh?

I'm a great fan of traditional ales, but new styles are always worth exploring.

Not all flavours will be liked by everyone, but don't mind a bit of experimentation.

I'm keen on the history of very traditional drinks, mead and fruit meads for example. I want to brew some more, my last mead has been approved by a fellow poster for example, but doubt everyone would like it! Trouble is honey is bloody expensive to experiment with.

Me and my lad are about to put on some kiwi fruit wine. Always fancied trying it, dunno what it will be like, but I'll never know if I don't.

Caffreys, Murphys and Oranjeboom.  All sadly missed. 

Think it was after our last game at Barnsley

Couple of lads got on the train with 24 cans a piece of lager not a tune

They struggled to give it away

Seen it at the offy opposite Sheffield station recently, too

Get a few days in Cork or Limerick (Or anywhere in Southern end of ROI. Murphys is a miles better stout than Guinness.

As a Guinness drinker  I agree to a degree.
If you can get a good pint of Guinness and it’s been looked after with the lines and temperature and it’s not watery or gassy then nothing compares but it’s finding a boozer that does this, Murphys across the board is usually pretty good, but I’d still take a good pint of Guinness over a good pint of Murphys

They're left with a load of retards

For those going to Sheffield Saturday who like Guinness find time to go to the grapes and thank me later. 

Sells more Guinness than any pub in the UK I was told and it’s a fantastic pint

How the fuck can you spoil Guinness? It is stored in a keg therefore just needs the usual clean lines and correct temp.

We aren't talking about cask ales here, Guinness is no different to John Smiths Smooth, Carling or Strongbow to keep.
