Yep,all good. The Smithfield, Furnace and Exeter Arms are too.

Think I may have mentioned the Exeter. Even The Silk Mill is ok but from my experience has struggled to hold a regular landlord/tenant/management. I've seen it be dive to nicely kitted out to meh to nice ales - haven't been in for a few years mind but in that part of the Town I would say it should be alright.

Come to think of it, there are quite a few places that are decent for a good pint and generally all relatively friendly. I guess we know that Derby as a city isn't as good as it's local East Mids counterparts but the watering holes do tend to still maintain some character and difference from place to place - also, if a certain pub hasn't got much character, you'll definitely meet some  Wink

Tesco and Asda sell that in bottles, not keen on it myself.

Bought 12 bottles of Old Timer from Wadsworth shop in Devizes for £24. Thoroughly recommend as an autumn/winter beer, lovely taste. Decent strength at 5.8%, I remember it being sold on draught in my youthful days at the Old Bell in Malmesbury and using it as a way to get pissed quickly! According to the lady in the shop it's still available on draught in winter months.

One of my favourite beers, very common towards the  Wye valley area.

Has anyone else noticed a drop off in 6X (my favourite ale), seems a lot harder to find a good pint nowadays, most seem very average !

6x always seemed to me to be very particular in how it was stored, especially the further from Devizes you got.

Not seen it around much either, but I don't go to pubs as much these day.

One of the pubs we occasionally visit for Sunday lunch in Glinton (near Market Deeping) has 6X on draught, it maybe because I donít get to drink it very often but itís proper lush.

I remember drinking Old Timer on draught in the working menís club in Bromham when we were kids, at that time they only brewed it in winter

6X does notoriously bad on the road. There must be an STFC joke in there somewhere.

that's what I always thought, but there are exceptions. The guy who used to run the millstone in Old Basing (Basingstoke) used to properly look after his beer. Drawn straight from the barrel too, best 6x I ever had

I know there are a few beer drinkers on here. We're going on a brewery tour to the Vale Brewery in Bucks next weekend, anyone been before or had their stuff before?

Our local, which is a proper old school real ale place often has Hook Norton beers in. The regulars always speak highly of their beers. I think a tour is probably on the cards if this goes well.

Hook Norton made some ales for my old units 300th anniversary. Very nice beer but only a limited edition
