What's with the glass? Kind of thing I'd expect to see Stella Artois in.

That's a tulip glass. Used for Belgian ales like that.

Stella provide chalices to bars for serving, but that's nothing more than bullshit marketing.

The sake sommeliers at Sakagura on heddon street will be able to recommend - taste before you buy. Was there in February really good sake collection

it's excellent and only £14.99, probs trying to emulate Monkey 47, at the price it's worth buying a few of these if you can, local store only had 1 left.

Things are heating up so I thought it would be a good idea to bump this thread. What's everyone drinking?

I've been on a bourbon trip lately and my favourite has been Four Roses single barrel. Sad to hear that the new US tariffs are probably going to force the EU to respond with more taxes on US goods imports.
