    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?

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Piraat is a wickedly rich and rounded brew that packs a mighty punch 10.5%. The powerful glow builds up from inside. Deep golden with a subtle haze. Lots of hops and malt. Mild sweetness. Reminiscent of bread dough, spices and tropical fruits.

    OK, OK lets stop all this beer nonsense and break open a cask of Rum to celebrate my (very) recent promotion from Landsman to Ordinary (I like to think that the prefix 'Extra' was left off by mistake) Seaman. All right so I've already had a couple but all are welcome to join me on the Lower Deck to get a couple in before I pass out.

    Congratulations, Reg.

    It's a shame I dislike the taste of beer with respect to drinking; I enjoy it in marinades, doughs, etc. I have tried 300+ beers from around the world, including home-brews, but nothing has tempted me to a second taste but one.

    Let's see, I golfed with three of my graduating seniors this past May after our last class together. The time before that was around 2000 with three friends. The time before that was in 1991 after the first Gulf War with my ECM shop mates. So, we're looking at once per decade, not enough times to develop a taste.

    I always try when someone has one I never tried before, but a sip never grows to more.
