I hope they export it!

Well let me give you even better news then. Yes they are! I have already quaffed some at a local pub. I kid you not, that is how I came to find out!
Went in there and asked what do they have on tap. She gives off a list of the usual nouveau-craft experiments, progressive triple pine, sour grapefruit radler... I have that kind of tired, but patient and determined look on my face... I will endure this. Then she says "Tetley's, ..." I was puzzled. Surely you don't mean Tetleys? Yes, Tetley's ale. My whole demeanor changed. Alright, please bring some. After she went off I said to my wife, "It's probably not the real thing. Some kind of faux Tetley's, I'm sure. Probably made by Molson."
And we all know what Molson did, to Rickard's Red. :(  So I sat there feeling kinda glum. Did they ruin Tetley's too?

But then it came, and I could tell right away by the colour! That same creamy white head, thick as a Guiness. Yep, the same. How do they do that, these geniuses of malt, hops and barley.

Wow, on tap too.  I was just hoping for some cans.

Thanks for the heads up.  Christmas is looking better already!

Woodfordes-Wherry.jpg

 

Woodfords wherry, brewed by an independant Brewery in Woodbaston Norfolk (just outside Norwich).

Multiple award winning ale.

 

Quote

A Supreme Champion Beer of Britain! Mighty fresh and zesty, our award-winning, rich amber ale enjoys floods of flavours, as sweet malts clash with grapefruit hops and big floral aromas in a sensory strike. Set sail on an epic taste adventure.

Easily my favourite beer and available in kit form for you to make your own.

I like this thread, and some of the names Mill house, driftwood etc.. Bring back memories of my travels.

Always found it weird how different each provinces "beer store" inventory was, and not even just in local products but imports as well

Im in Montreal now, great microbrewery culture, one is Dieu du ciel that's available in stores.

Personally im a lightweight when it comes to beer(though as my name suggests I have other vices), i like stuff like Steam whistle, clean, simple pilsner, four ingredients, hops, barley, yeast, water

I would like to try all of the beers that you guys have suggested! Unfortunately, here in Kim City the liquor stores don't always have the greatest selection.-k

I feel your pain. NB has a generally poor selection.

Pump house isn't bad.

Distillerie Fils du roy makes amazing gin, ive never tried the beer but i know they brew some, have you tried that? Can't get it here

I took a risk, masked up, and visited the local liquor store.  This stuff's not bad.
