Greene King IPA is one of the finest ales in the country. You lucky, lucky bu33ers!

Purity Ales are amazing. If you haven't tried them you don't know what draft beer can taste like! Beer

I am with Danny Boy on this one. Purity Ales are very, very good. Mad Goose is my favourite.

I remain sceptical about that.  IMHO it's an acceptable session bitter, no more.  However, I might just pop over to the Common tonight to check that I'm right.  I will certainly miss the Mad Goose, but please note that that was only there on match days, not all week.  We did have Marston's EPA, wearing a false moustache as "Moseley Rugby Ale", this will now be the GK IPA. It will be interesting to see what else is there.

Greene King's guest ales might prove interesting fare - if we get to see any of them.

Shame that local-ish Purity Ales have left Billesley to be replaced by a beer that you can in most parts of the country. A nice pint of Bathams would be a good guest ale - you certainly don't run in straight lines after a few of those! 

Sorry going off thread here, anyone want to start up a "Beer at Rugby Grounds" thread.Smile

I've served many gallons of GK IPA to less-than-discerning holidaymakers over this last 'summer'.
Do they have their tastebuds excised before venturing over this way?
Bland, characterless, pasteurized muck.

Some of the other ales could be promising, too.  Sad to see that GK KK light mild is no longer listed though Cry

We're having the cask version.  Bland and characterless possibly, but I sure hope it hasn't been pasteurised.

Ah, fair enough.
Warning though. We had a 'guest' cask of IPA Gold a little while ago. I sort of anticipated a fairly big step-up from the dead stuff, but sadly, no.
Not much in their Guest or Other lists I'd recommend TBH.
Best thing I had from them this season was a T-shirt!



Oh, and on the subject of our visitors; they mostly hail from Nottingham and Leicester, so i'll let you decide...

Had 2 pints of GK IPA last night when near Bedford, first time for many a year.
Completely characterless and unrecognisable from the beer of my student years.
 
I suspect Purity are unable and unwiling to match the discounts offered by a quasi national brewer.
 
Re Beer at Rugby Grounds, St Austell still in situ at the Mennaye.

If this is going to degenerate into the beer thread ..... St Austell return to Redruth, Tribute at £2 per pint all day for Saturday's derby, The Inferno in Kernow!

I've moved the beer posts into its own thread. Beer

Can I remind everyone to try to keep on the topic to which the thread is entitled. If you want to go off piste, feel free to start another thread. 

Thank you.

This has nothing to do with beer at rugby grounds, but on Monday I had the most expensive drink I have ever had - I paid £4.25 for a pint of wheat beer in London. I'm still trying to get over the shock. Disapprove

(It took me years to get over the 5 euro pint of Guinness I once had in Amsterdam...but at least the exchange rate at the time made it less than £4.25)
