you can keep your British ale, just as you can keep Marmite, Christmas pudding, black pudding, elderflower cordial and all the disgusting things you produce in that sad little country
There are good local beers and mass-produced s**** in every European country. "Don't export the good stuff" isn't limited to French wine.

What do you mean like Newcastle Brown Ale, or Caledonian Pale Ale or maybe a nice John Smiths Bitter?

Or maybe you prefer a Irish Stout like Murphy's

Perhaps some good old fashioned British Cider is more your thing, like Symonds or Scrumpy Jack?

Obviously you know what these all have in common?

Ale is not lager, they've very different beverages. I don't understand the snobbery of drinkers; why is it not OK for people to simply drink whatever they like the taste of? As a teetotaller I'm used to people sneering at my choice but at least no one thinks me inferior for drinking orange juice instead of pineapple juice, or lemonade instead of cola. I feel sorry for the 8000 people with no jobs.

All the biggest selling beers are pretty light, as they please the palate of the masses. The flavours that go beyond that tend to stay local. You can find fantastic brews all over Europe. Perhaps one should look further than the next corner pub one day! Not just in terms of beer. But I guess that is not in the spirit of Brexit…

You obviously have never run any sort of business. A pub has high overheads, and these have to be covered. A lot of it is charges by the pubco that owns it. Then there are costs associated with building maintenance, then there are utility bills, cleaning, gardening, various insurances, staff to pay. You are paying for a service, not a carry home four pack.

The pubs don't determine the cost of a pint. This is done by the owners of the pubs as most pubs are run by tied tennats. The landlords margins are samll while the 'owners' are massive plus the 35% tax the government make on every pint/shot/drink consumed.

Not all British ale is far superior. I'd reckon there is the same proportion of good beer Vs rubbish produced in every country.

Britain does not hold any innate superiority.

I'm a female who actually likes beer. But, just as with wine, I prefer to have a different taste each time I open a bottle. I hardly ever buy a 'six pack', but instead pick up the odd bottle here and there from the supermarket shelves. Maybe all beer companies should try exploiting different beer niches, rather than the dependable male (somewhat over weight) beer drinker.

nothing like a good old bit of stereotyping, think you'll find that the outdated view you have of a beer drinker is not shared by the big brewing companies. To survive they have to address every demographic and accommodate every niche You'd be amazed of the scale of brands owned by big brewers and how many different routes to market are used .

Are they, after buying Punch, still charging very high rents to pub landlords? Of course they are.

What a load of old tat. The people on here who claim to be "beer drinkers" are the half a pint of craft ale before they pass out brigade. The sort who won't go into Wetherspoons, but only into Ye Olde Craft Beer shop, where you can get a glass of donkeys hoof for 10 quid.

If you like lager, Heineken, Carlsberg, Budweiser - it's all the same, nice and fizzy and makes you feel good after a few.

I drink Pale Ales, used to drink lager years ago, but can't stand the stuff now. Mrs Drinks dark Ales.

If you (as it sounds like you do) prefer fizzy cr*p, then good for you, but for taste and quality, you can't beat Real ales and there's 1000's of small microbreweries selling beautiful real ales all over the UK and abroad.

This is probably because in 2020, a lot of people (myself included) bought a lot more alcohol than they previously did for home consumption, because there was a.) no commute b.) nothing else to do.

However, this has had a negative impact. I will go alcohol free for 2021 now. I'm sure a number of people have/will follow suit....

I only drink at the pub (never at home), so my alcohol consumption has dropped dramatically since first lockdown in March. To me drinking is a social experience, not done for the sake of getting drunk. In fact I'm approaching 100 days alcohol free since the last pubs shut where I live on 4th November. But when they open I'll happily go back out and drink more in 2021 than I did in 2020.

That is because small brewers are small businessmen, and see the Conservatives as the only party that understands and appreciates them. Not much maybe, but more so than the other parties which seem to hate traditional working people!

Most of the beer and cider sold by Heineken in the UK is brewed in the UK at a number of brewery sites. For sure some is imported where the capacity doesn't exist to meet demand.

Top rated comment.....

In the U.K we use names lager and beer.

Lager is Heineken etc. Beer is ale.

Best lagers in world come from Czech rep.
Best ales in world (in my opinion) come from U.K. largely because U.K. is main producer and consumer of ale.

I agree about Czech lagers being the best. I mean Pilsner is in the Czech Republic right? British ales are underestimated - just try a pint of Landlord! But it's a no from me for John Smiths and Tetley's unless it's a session of course where the onus is on quantity than quality.
