What Beers Are Popular In England?

Wed Sep 24, 2008 10:32 pm

I really enjoy Newcastle Brown Ale as well as Boddington's. So I am curious what is the beer of choice in England? Please don't say Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Coors Light, MGD or Miller Lite. I would be very, very disappointed.

Speaking purely as a student - the cheapest Big grin

Out of choice I'll go for the real ales instead of beer or lager, my favourite being 'Tribute' a local Ale from the St Austell Brewery in Cornwall;

Some of the Jennings ales from the Cumberland region are nice. I remember asking quietly at the bar in the summer, and being surrounded by the "locals" advising as to what was the best and offering testers.

Quality.

You may have good sense, but Brits consume considerably more Foster's per capita than Australians. And UK brewed Foster's tastes even worse than the Oz version, if that's possible.....

The more Fosters was promoted here, the less they sold, so they usually only advertise at internationally televised sports events these days.

Don't mind a Newcy Brown, and Masham (Theakstons and Black Sheep - both owned by Black Sheep these days) is well worth a visit. How Peculier!

I used to drink Courage Bitter. But I lived in Reading and could not get away from it. In fact living in Reading drove me to drink it, had to do something to take away the boredom.

As well as that Flowers Bitter is not a bad drop.

The big US brands are still pretty minor in England - Coors has quite a presence but as a company rather than a brand, despite recent heavy promotion of Coors Light. I assume that must be the most common US beer to have on tap in bars and pubs, given that Bud, where available, is bottled.

People drink a lot of Stella Artois (mostly brewed in the UK, not imported), Fosters (I hate it - more so from cans - but if available at £1.40 a pint after a few better drinks it doesn't seem such a bad idea), John Smith's (never had it!), Carlsberg, and Carling (useful cheap ingredient for student favourite Snakebites - could PlymSpotter enlighten us further?).

Plus many of the usual suspects are located in the UK, but not necessarily England (include the rest of the countries and you get to add known alcoholics like Kirkie into the mixture).

Grolsch is quite abundant at the moment. It's possibly the nicer of the 'mid-to-low' range lagers. IMO it beats Stella, Carlsberg, Carling (mid-range? pah) hands down. But it is Dutch. So my vote goes to London Pride - great as a winter warmer on long bike rides!

Grolsch is probably the only beer i'll drink, most of the US stuff tastes like crap and a lot of the EU stuff isn't much better. Grolsch is strong too  Wink 5.0% i think. I like Stella Artois too, but only as a last resort.

Bitter is just horrible and only good for shandy if i'm honest. But nobody drinks those anyway  Wink

The beer's of choice? - Mostly European beer's. Grolsch, Heineken,carslberg,becks,kronemberg etc... The list is endless!

As for US beer's they are available in virtually all supermarket's and store's and are quite popular but nowhere near as popular as European beers.

And of course England has many Ale's. Like you say NBA is very nice as is Boddington's. Have you ever tried John Smith's? - Im sure you would very much like that too. Of course there are hundred's more great Ale's but I dont have the time to list...

Quoting Metroliner (Reply 14):

Yes it is. I used to drink Grolsch before it got really popular. I remember going down to my local store when it was only available to buy in those big 500ml bottle's with the rubber seal replacable bottle top.

I understand that the most popular real ale in the UK is now Greene King IPA. It is certainly available in many pubs across East Anglia and London. The main reason for this is that Greene King persisted with real ales in the 1970's when the big brewers tried to force their disgusting pasteurised keg bitters down our throats. Fortunately the days of Watneys Red Barrell, Double Diamond etc are long gone.

The two remaining large UK owned brewers are Wolverhampton & Dudley with their Banks, Marstons & Jennings brands ; and Greene King with their Greene King, Morland, Ruddles & Belhaven brands .
In my experience you can generally rely on the products of both these brewers.

My favorite "proper" beers are:-

1. Hobgoblin
2. Theakstons Old Perculiar
3. Old Speckled Hen
4. Courage Directors
5. Timothy Taylors "Landlord"
6. Green King IPA


I'm also partial to the Wheat (or white) beers that are springing up all over the place:-

1. Leffe Blond
2. Leffe Brune
3. Hoegaarden
4. Kronenberg White

Had several pints of Black Sheep at the weekend back home in Yorkshire, along with several pints of hand pulled Tetley's (non of this smoothflow stuff) and even tried a new beer, Leeds Best by the recently formed Leeds Brewery which was very nice too.

Just cannot drink bitter darn sarf though, as they pull it like flat brown water, rather than thick and creamy like you get it oop norff !!.

Corona is also very popular in England, quite a nice beer to drink without the bloated or gassy feeling from other lagers.

Peroni has recently started to make an appearance on tap rather than in bottles in alot of "trendy" bars, also the Artois brewery have brought out a couple of other lagers to try and steer people away from Stella (or Wife Beater as it is commonly known), Peetermans being one of them, can't remember the other.

Beck's has recently re-branded as Beck's Vier which isn't bad, and not too gassy.

I'd say that US beers are going down in popularity if anything. At one time almost all places sold either Budweiser or Miller GD, but I've hardly seen it anywhere recently - which isn't such a bad thing !!.

For a beer that is popular and has great taste you cant beat Fullers London pride.
Fullers IPA might work as well on sunny days but London pride is the best.

The US beers are disappering, I am not sure if they should be called US anymore for that sake (Being belgian, Brittish/Saffa and Canadian majority owned)
Not that they ever have been popular but they are definately not increasing their marketpresence.

I guess that lager is the most sold though. Stella, Carlsberg, 1664, Heineken etc. the usual suspects that you found all around the world.

However in som parts of London you get the real Kronenbourg and not the disgusting Scotish & Newcastle invented 1664. I really hope Carlsberg who owns Kronenbourg now gets rid of 1664 and starts promoting the real Kronenbourg instead.

I haven't noticed a Harp pump in a pub for 20 years or more; I thought it had disappeared totally.
In the 70's in my home area it was the dominant brand, as Greene King brewed it under licence from Guinness, for sale in their pub chain. Greene King thought so much of it that they shut down the Biggleswade brewery that made it, and bought in other lagers instead.

Of course not all pubs stocked the same beers but generally it seems the almost flavourless lagers of around 4% are the most common, But of course the most popular beers were the cheapest lagers.

You definately were not working at the Butcher's Arms in Tilehurst then. Way too posh a range for that pub (even if one of the ranges is wifebeater).
