Have they taken over from the men.
So many different wines and spirits tbh I'm lost  Doh
The good lady had some Demi-Sec Alliance wine followed by Strawberry Gin and Tonic last night (from the new gin store).
i see a Fellowship Sauvignon Blanc chilling in the fridge today and another Demi-Sec alongside it..
What happened to the Girl's Pale Ale's and Brandy and Babycham's ?

More importantly what's everyone else drinking in the brave new world ? 
I'm a Stowford Press or a Thatchers sampler myself Big Grin

Diet Pepsi ......

Only kidding ...... Vodka and diet pepsi at home, shared with my better half or real ale on draft when the pubs / restaurants finally reopen.

Don't really drink in pubs ..... Just one with a meal. Usually driving so over the course of an hour no danger to other road users ......

I've always loved Banks's, Batham's, Brew XI. But down here (Cornwall) I love Sharp's DoomBar.

Just hope the Brewery are back working, and turning it out, in time for the Pubs re-opening.
Meanwhile I fill me boots with bottles of Merrydown.

Banks''s is a personal favorite, John Smith's another, never keen on Brew Xl each to there own.

Let's hope in May sorry, july, August or whenever this bloody season ends we can raise a glass to promotion and the title.

What's happened to the ladies "Spritzers" - Cheeky Vimto's - WKD's - Malibu -  Bacardi Breezers - Smirnoff Ice 
Have they all been dumped into the history books ?

I was a Banks's man - well originally I prefered the slightly sweeter smoother Julia "Hansons" but alas they are on the decline.

Although living in the Scottish Borders, my local Tesco stocks Banks’s at only £1 per bottle. Whenever I go back down to Birmingham in the car, always call in at the Holdens brewery to stock up as can’t get this in Scotland

I like foreign lagers and pilsners. Tyskie (Polish), Asahi (Japanese) and Holsten (German) are my current favourites.

I also like a nice gin and lemonade when I want something a bit different.

..... ANYTHING!! Big Grin

A real aler at heart, and live 3 miles from Tenby where there's a brilliant brewery that does fab Real ales. Also really good in bottles these days - unlike the horrible fizz that you used to get in beer bottles years ago. So the same beer in pubs AND at home is now a real treat!

Only go for ales in pubs - the occasional really cold cider on a hot day too - but enjoy beer AND wine at home - a nice cool Sav Blanc, or Yellowtail Shiraz for a wonderful, and not too pricey, red!

Cask ale all the way, partial to an occasional single malt Scotch for a treat. Some of the craft beers out there are nice as well - Brewdog in particular do some great ones - but I have to admit, it annoys me a bit that supermarkets seem to have cut down their bottled ale selection over the last five years or so to accommodate all the new craft beers. I know they have limited shelf space, but it shouldn't be a zero-sum game.

Naturally you get fads in drinks like anything else - particularly for women, as beer tends to permanently rule the roost for men - and it wouldn't surprise me if alcopops have grown a bit dated in a lot of people's eyes. Not a gin fan myself, but there's a real range out there and a lot of stuff you can do with it to get a selection of flavours, which isn't really the case with Blue WKD.

You're right Ska'd, Brewdog do some good stuff - Punk IPA is my favourite, and my 13 year old daughter loves it too!
(I have always believed that kids should be introduced to alcohol at an early age; limited, moderated obviously, so it loses the novelty value early and IN THEORY they'll be more controlled ("cool") when they get to 16/17/18)
