Where can you find good beer?

Of course, it depends what kind of beer you like.

For some people, beer is just a liquid to pour down the throat. For others, it is something to savour and think about, to explore and research. If you are inclined towards the latter view, there are plenty of opportunities for R&D, starting with your local supermarket, or off-licence. Look for brands that appear to be taking some trouble, and are serious about their product.

Avoid foreign beers brewed under licence in the UK – they are rarely as good as the original. Go to a pub that puts some thought into selecting its beers; talk to the publican. Have a look at the specialist beer websites (you can buy hundreds of interesting beers on line). Go to a beer festival.
