    Default Favourite tipple.

    For those of you who like something with a nautical flavour which is lighter than the Rum, Brandy, or Gin.
    Trying to keep things in the spirit of the Navy, how about these two beers my brave lads.

    Quite nice. Though I dislike the contents, I wouldn't mind starting a collection of such bottles.

    I was hoping that we might get an example of such ales with a nautical flavour from around the world when I started this. Thanks for kick starting us Dave.

    Wisconsin has a ton of microbreweries and many do have a nautical theme. Without much searching I found tributes to Commodore Perry (Ale) and the Edmund Fitzgerald (Porter). If you want more let me know?

    Oh, I forgot to mention the slogan for Commodore Perry Ale. . . ."Don't Give Up the Sip".

    I'll post a few more if/when I track them down.

    Nothing like a little bit of research to open ones eyes. It would seem Wisconsin is well known for craft beers and microbreweries. Our state ranked 11th last year and the boom continues. While I didn't find a huge number of nautical themed beer names here are a couple more. If you want unusual names for beers Wisconsin definitely has a few.

    I have discovered that there is a Shipyard Brewing Company in Portland, Maine. Here is a picture of some of their products.

    Can any of our U.S. members tell me whether they actually make ale from pumpkins?

    Well, I don't think I have an excuse to not start collecting. We have several nice stores in town that carry a wide range of microbrewery beers. Next week, I will make a visit.

    Adnams produce lots of nautically named beers. It may be because they are based in Southwold, Suffolk on the East Coast.

    They also produce some very palatable ales.

    I like Sharp's Doom Bar, both the taste and the name. Could have Nautical connotations? A dark night, a hidden sandbank, a strong wind! That sort of thing.Name:  31dover-doombar_1.jpg

    I think that is pushing my brief a bit too far Reg, but I do like your thinking.
    As they don't explain the actual meaning on the bottle I will let you run with that one, but I don't want anyone else getting fancy Board of the Admiralty ideas like this one. Keep to the script . If you want a thread on drinks in general open another thread please.

    Sorry, I didn't know that the label had to tell a story which is why I made one up. Quite a good one I thought!

    It was an excellent tale Reg, and you don't need to tell a story. It is just that the beer must have a picture with an actual nautical theme. I can see I did not set the parameters accurately enough. A ship, sailor or dockyard, or even mermaid or whale might pass, but an iceberg might be pushing it a bit, because the connection is a bit more obtuse.
    Let's open it up a bit and see how ingenious people can be then. Doom bar is in!
