Beer Beer Beer

Post  Red Riley on Wed Jan 06, 2010 6:23 pm

Do you have Samuel Smith's beers on the shelves in the UK or are they just exported to the US? Their beers are quite good and I feel like they have a very consistent quality. I picked up an Organic Cider yesterday because I had never tried that one, and I'm not usually a fan of cider. Most of the ones I've had in the past have been too sweet or too heavy or too high in alcohol content or just nasty (Woodchuck cider comes to mind). I was quite impressed with the Samuel Smith's Cider and I'll pick up a few more next time I'm in the specialty beer shop. I also like the Nut Brown Ale, the IPA, the Organic Lager, the Tadcaster Porter and the Oatmeal Stout.

I also picked up a Speckled Hen "Hen's Tooth" which I haven't tried yet. Maybe I'll have it for lunch today.

Oh sam smiths! beautiful.
Whenever i head up to middlesboro, or york i have to savour the fine taste of their pure brewed lager. absolutely lovely and kicks the nuts out that uniquely belgian beer (brewed in england) stella acid tasting shXt.
sadly like you i have trouble in finding beverage houses that supply it, i cant get it here in essex, but you can get it off the net i believe, (my nearest sam smiths local is in london, 42 miles away, and at london prices).. Crying or Very sad
good luck!

I used to live about 10miles from Tadcaster. I've driven past the brewery a few times. You can see it from the A64 on your way to Leeds from York.

if you can find it, try getting hold of some Black Sheep ales - the best bitter is the milder form, going up to rigwelter which is quite strong, but just as tasty

I can see an honorary Yorkshire man in the making here

Enjoy

I have had the Black Sheep ales, but the one I like the best (for obvious reasons) in this one
