Favourite Beer

Shrimp in a Kilt

Inspired by an excellent post from Matt on the Chit Chat forum:

Crouch Vale Brewery
Mighty Oak Brewey
Felstar Brewery
Blanchfields Brewery
Farmer's Ales (The Maldon Brewing Co.)
Mersea Island Brewery
Greene King
I wonder which is your favourite beer? A description of the beer and reason for loving it?

Matt seems to favour Crouch Vale, which I must confess I hadn't heard of.

My current nomination, (though I reserve the right to change my preference as often as I lift a glass) is Black Cuillin from the Isle of Skye Brewery, described in The Good Beer Guide 2005 as ‘a complex, tasty brew worthy of its many awards. Full-bodied with a malty richness, malts do hold sway but there are plenty of hops and fruit to be discovered in its varied character. A truly delicious Scottish old ale.’

There is a small brewery at Dundonnell, just down the road from me, which is brewing some excellent beer at the moment too, but I am still reasearching.
