I love rating a new beer but sometimes I just want to drink one I’ve had many times and know I like. In the last 12 months, which beers have become your ‘go to’ options? (And - if you can be bothered - why?)
Ayinger Celebrator. I love this treacle-like beer. I’m still amazed that I can buy a bottle for just £2.75 - I’d be willing to pay double.
Fyne Ales Vital Spark. A tasty Mild and one of Scotland’s most underrated beers.
Orval. I must have had 20-30 Orvals in my time and even when I drink it now, I seem to notice something new.
Knops Black Cork. By far my favourite beer from this brewery. It’s sweet, sticky and amazing in both bottle and cask.
Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel. For me, this pushes Celebrator very close for Germany’s best beer. I love the sweet cherry and prune quality.
