Having been diagnosed as gluten intolerant about 10 years ago limits my beer choice but the Westerham Brewery do GF beer and their Audit Ale which as close to Adnams Broadside as makes no difference is my favourite closely followed by Double Stout and they do a nice IPA as well. GF San Miguel from Morrison’s is about the best lager. Other than that it’s Devon Red cider or Aspalls Draught Cider.

Wine makes me grind my teeth when I’m sleeping it off for some reason so I try to avoid it.

Still got some of the 2 cases of Trappist Westvleteren that I collected from the monastery in November 2019 left.
I had a bottle of that once, staying in a Belgian hotel for work a few years ago, the hotelier brought it out for me having asked "would you like to try the best beer in the world?".
A tall claim to make, I thought, but he was right, it was amazing, like drinking chocolate ale. About 14% though I seem to recall?

They were doing 3 beers last time I looked, a blonde (can't remember the strength, an 8% and a 12%. I bought a case each of the 8 and 12. It's certainly lovely beer, best kept for special occasions. I love going to Belgium, even their Jupiler is nice and the range in most supermarkets is just superb.

My favourite beer is Duvel and in particular their Triple hop. I have however been swayed by a local brewer (www.thebelgianbrewer.co.uk) although keeping in the same style. I got through bottle of this stuff last year ... well in the four months I was having any drink.

So far this year I'm still on the wagon but the beer fridge is full ready and waiting

Lad at work told me about this. It's a dark beer with plenty of flavour, but not hoppy. I'm fussy with the ales but this is bloody lovely.

Aldi's finest. Highly recommended. 🍻

Must say I've enjoyed the Old so might stick another order in before they run out.
