I could murder a pint of Bitter.

    Recommended Posts

    I could absolutely destroy a pint of real bitter, none of this pretend Aussie rubbish. Is their anywhere other than The Elephant (which does Tetley's) that I can get a pint of something like Theakstons.

     

    I'm not talking that carbonated James Squire rubbish either.

     

    Sincerly,

    A parched Yorkshireman.

    Funny that, when back in the UK last August, i couldn't drink that stuff they sell in the pubs, it pretended to be beer but was like warm water.

    You can get a good selection of stuff from Dan Murphy's. Tetley's, John Smiths, Boddingtons etc. But nothing beats a golden brown pint of hand pulled in a pub that smells like stale alcohol and has a tar stained carpet. :notworthy:

     

    I'll have make do with Yorkshire Tea for now.

    Have you tried the microbreweries that are dotted around? There is the Port Dock Brewery, in Port Adelaide; the Lobethal Bierhaus in the Hills; and the Steam Exchange in Goolwa. Think there is also one called the Myponga Brewery on the Fleurieu Peninsula (at Myponga, I'd guess!)

     

    The first two I know for sure do "tasting" platters (small measures of each of their beers so you can try and decide which you like best before going for a big glass).

    Sounds good, thanks, TTG is miles away but I do have to go there for TAFE so next time I might pop in for 1 or 10.

    I have, not my cup of tea unfortunately, thanks for replying though.

     

    Somebody mentioned Hahndorf, I love it there, wish it was only easier to get home from, I must befriend a Hahndorfian with a nice comfortable couch.

    Couldn't agree more with Lynsteve. UK beer is absolute garbage - like lukewarm dishwater. The sooner you get a taste for real aussie beer, the better.
