Default Assorted Ales

Can anybody recommend a collection of assorted ales that you can buy online?

Either that or can anybody recommend some to somebody getting in to his ales

The Wychwood ones are all excellent imo, Hobgoblin especially

Sloaners, BM bargains have a decent selection of ales and at reasonable prices.

The Bottle Shop in Bramhall does too (a bit pricier)

Try Marstons, not seen them for a while but they are very nice

sainsburys and booths supermarkets always have a decent selection of ale.

lancaster bomber and wainwright by thwaites is a decent starting point.

Not a fan of Lancaster Bomber, used to drink it years ago when it was Mitchell's beer but don't think it's the same now Thwaites brew it :beersnob:

Asda are doing a 4-for-5 on some decentish ones. Abbot Ale, Bishops Finger, Wychwood (as mentioned, Hobgoblin is nice), Holts selection also.

yeah, holts are always decent. 1849 and thunderholt are nice.

best bet is just to buy a selection and then explore others from the same breweries that you like.

edit: my favourite is lytham ipa by lytham brewery, which is only round the corner from me. 5.6% and tastes bloody lovely. might treat myself tomorrow now it's in my head.

tbf I probably only drank it because I was a poor apprentice and it was cheaper than Tetley's. End of the month was Mitchell's best at 1.49 a pint. Eeh it's grim oop north

Marston's Pedigree was always very nice even out of a tin.

Anything from Summer Wine, Magic Rock, Red Willow - all good breweries and pretty local.

The best I've had lately though was Duvel Tripel Hop. Like regular Duvel but dry hopped for extra depth of flavour. 9.5% abv. (4.80 a bottle, mind). Stunning though.

Off to belgium in a couple of weeks to drink, basically.

When my Dad's mate retired we bought him 65 different bottles of beer.

Joseph Holt had a promotion where you got 30 (I think) different ales, that might be worth looking at.

Sainsbury's did some decent selections of 5-6 different bottles for 6 just before Christmas..

Those deals will no doubt have finished, but they may have different ( possibly better ) ones on now.

Morrisons are good for Ales as well.
