    Craft Beer

    " It is a beer made in a non traditional way" Sorry but I have had to come out of retirement to have a little chuckle at some of the rubbish being spouted on here. Specially by people who apparently work at Brewery. Beer has largely been made the same way since the dawn of making beer. You soak the grains and extract the sugar creating wort. The wort is then boiled adding hops as required to create a level of bitterness and aroma. You then add yeast and ferment. Then you put it in a bottle, keg or cask of some description and carbonate it either naturally or by force carbonating it. Craft beer has no definition unlike Real Ale. Many people have argued over a definition and this is the best one I can find (bottom of post).... I wouldn't say its a perfect list but there is no definition agreed upon... It certainly has nothing to do with brewing beer in a non traditional way. I can only think people saying this are calling brewing methods used by the massive brewery's where they sacrifice taste for profit, force carbonate and pasteurises and add additives is being seen as traditional - when in fact its relativity new in the history of making beer and results in really shit beer the masses seem to flock too. Just to add a lot of craft beer is forced carbonated ( if not it would have claim to be Real Ale) Look up Real Ale if you want to go the next level of drinking better beer (although not always better tasting - often a craft beer can be better than a real ale for taste alone). A European Craft Brewery: 1) Is Small Brews less than 500,000 HL annually. *see point 3 below 2) Is Authentic a) brews all their beers at original gravity b) does not use rice, corn or any other adjuncts to lessen flavour and reduce costs 3) Is Honest a) All ingredients are clearly listed on the label of all of their beers. b) The place where the beer is brewed is clearly listed on all of their beers. c) All their beer is brewed at craft breweries. 4) Is Independent Is not more than 20% owned by a brewing company which operates any brewery which is not a craft brewery

    I find it hard to see why anyone votes for them... What does it achieve ?

    So what happened to all the SNP nutters that used to post on here ? Just wondering on what their take is on Scotland imposing Tory rule on the English

    True... The more i think about it the more I wonder how much was him and how much was a piss poor campaign by the Tories. He certainly motivated the young, that much is clear.

    Listening to her speech Its amazing really... She asked for a mandate, didn't get it and just carried on regardless

    My initial thoughts where it was going to lead to a softer brexit, but now I am not so certain. So much less happy.

    Very questionable... Like I said, he would need a big shift in Scottish voting practices I feel. Need to see the analysis of what happened.

    It depends on the power plays within the Tory party. She is damaged and the wolves are smelling blood.

    I said earlier hats off to him but I think we are a long way of him being a potential PM... He was still way off having the numbers to be in power. If he is to take power he realistically needs to wipe out the SNP and Tories in Scotland and given a heck of a lot of them just choose Tories over him I doubt he can do that. So maybe towards the end of Brexit but I don't see him winning in six months if there is a another election.

    Doing well thank you! Hope you are well. Feeling much better after last night. May deserved a massive punch in the face. Shame Scotland ruined what could of been a truly wonderful day. I take my hat off to Corbyn... Think he ran a great campaign.

    That was easily the worse end to a season so far...

    The Dirty Independence Question

    I think Sturgeon asking for a referendum during the middle of the brexit negotiations is totally immature. She knows the UK can't allow it. Its the worse form of point scoring and the scots aren't stupid, this will back fire on her. The took a decision that was based on the knowledge that a EU referendum would happen and they would be bound by it. Time to move on.

    It was certainly more brutal than normal... It was probably more brutal than I would like to see on a regular basis. Nice start to the season though.

    Films

    Watched Creed mainly because it was free on Netflix... What utter garbage... Could of been a wonderful film if done properly but it was just plain awful in every way possible... The emotional scenes where dull and unbelievable, the fighting scenes where rushed and aimed at people with no attention span, the motorbike scene was cringe worthy and it shamelessly borrowed from the original film and executed the like for like scenes with nothing of what made the original special. Just awful... In every way possible...
