Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by Chuffy, 4 May 2008.
Yes, at Sourton.
I went there once. I found the place slightly disturbing, like something out of a Hammer Horror film.
If you go back to page 1 of this thread, this is how it started out....more of a virtual pub that folk would come into, order a pint and some pork scratchings and that's about it
Gawd knows how or when it morphed into it's current guise of fancy beers served in thirds and discussions on exotic hop varieties
I think it reflects the way the beer industry has changed over the last 10 years - largely for the better I'd say.
This thread, as it now is, is one of the reasons I will persevere with CC. I have learned more about beer, and expanded my beer horizons because of this thread.
If it had remained as it started, it might as well be the t thread where no one actually talks about tea.
Don't get me wrong, I too find it a really good thread and I've also expanded my beery horizons as a result. I was just interested to see how it started off (and the first 20 pages or so are like the tea thread...couldn't be arsed to read any more) and what it's become
Get you wrong? As if.
Talking of fancy beers...

Well, I'm sitting here bemoaning the lack of pubs between Orpington and Bromley. In fact, there are no really great pubs, just some okay Ines around here.
Nursing a pint of Fireside
St Austell beer festival only 10 1/2 days away...
I don't get out much but I have my one pass of the year....
Bliney, that went quick. Arguing about the rise of fascism.
Better get another one in quickly then...
Done and done.
That looks like a pretty decent pint
I had this in my Beer52 box a few months ago, it's good stuff.
Now £4.49 a box in Quality Save.
