    Do you have a beard and are there crumbs in it? Do you also wear a beret unironically?

    Not at all times :p

    I did try and make notes if went to a beer festival, but they devolve from description of flavours to nonsense after a couple of pints. Then I never read them back anyway.

    Mostly just use notes to try and record what I drank.

    Jam and ginger fudge black IPA? Sure why not, just chuck any old shit in.
    Can't disagree with that. Brewed a shit beer? Chuck some more crap in there, make it soft serve and charge £17 for a third. :rolleyes:

    That just looks stupid.

    I have paid about 8 quid for a third, but that was for a 12% sour beer and honestly it was one of the best things I've ever drunk, so no regrets.

    Certainly no fucking ice cream.

    Sure, a lot of craft beer is shit, just as a lot of any thing is shit. But there's a bit of a gap between that and "they all taste the same".

    It's not good or bad, it's just a style. I like darker beers, porters and such.

    Itís fucking everywhere in the U.K. Every bar has 18 different types on draught, every shop has a dozen different craft brewers offering a dozen different types on IPA in a dozen different quirky cans with a dozen different quirky names. You do the math!

    IPAs can be good, but they became very trendy and hip. Because they can be heavily hopped it's easy to make a shit beer then just cover the shitness with hops.

    I like some craft brewers a lot, Wild Beer are great, or Arbor, or Moor. They don't really do gimmick beers. But many craft brewers are shit.

    But they definitely don't taste the same. Same way that whiskies don't taste the same. Or anything, really.

    Should the topic be changed to Coronavirus (and beer) ?

    I love gimmick beers. Most of them I'll never try again, but I do agree that there's too many IPAs around and having a bit of variety is nice.

    I've never really been a fan of even traditional IPAs, but most new craft IPAs can do one. Far too hoppy.

    There are a fuck load of new breweries opening up all the time now and then closing down. Many are just trying to cash in on the craft beer boom but quickly realise its more than just releasing a shit IPA or pale and waiting for the millions to role in. Its also lead to a lot of big breweries releasing shit beer under a different name to try and cash in too.

    But amongst all the shit are some real gems if you know where to look.

    Enough beer, so it's time for a conspiracy theory, with this coronavirus-related article:

    https://www.nature.com/news/inside-the-chinese-lab-poised-to-study-world-s-most-dangerous-pathogens-1.21487

    Future plans include studying the pathogen that causes SARS, which also doesnít require a BSL-4 lab, before moving on to Ebola and the West African Lassa virus, which do. Some one million Chinese people work in Africa; the country needs to be ready for any eventuality, says Yuan. ďViruses donít know borders.Ē
    edit: to be clear, SARS is a member of the coronavirus family. The rest of the article talks about previous accidental releases from other Chinese bio-secure labs, amongst other things.

    Tinfoil hats can be adjusted to fit inside a hazmat suit.

    Not a fan of gimmicky beers but I've had more than my fair share of the jam doughnut beers that Tiny Rebel do.

    Craft beers are like sourdough bread, it's mandatory for every single establishment to serve them as if other bread or beer doesn't exist.
    Wank.
