Been a while since this was discussed, if at all?

Which club has the best pint?

Whitefriars SC, for all it is great in so many ways, just has a few cans in stock in the kitchen, so must be pretty near the bottom of the pile.

Where should I go visit?!

Anywhere on the East Coast selling Adnams, anywhere in Cormwall selling Doom Bar.

I also enjoyed a black one in one of the YCs in Dun Laoghaire... that was nice.

At m.w.y.c we have adnams and old speckled hen in bottles in the bar all the time plus a small selection of others ie hook Norton, badger or doom bar. It just depends what takes my fancy when i am doing a bar orderSmile

Lager wise, we have Becks or Stella, it just depends which is cheaper when I am buying.LOL

No bar at our club but for opens we normally get in a keg of the local micro brewery ale. Won lots of prizes.

Phantom Southern series has been sponsored by Exmoor Ales for the last couple of years, resulting in provision of Exmoor Beast or Exmoor Gold at each host club on event days.   Truly excellent beer made all the more enjoyable at the end of a good days yachting.  ClapClap

Our club has potentially the best pint a man can drink, paid for by those Bandits in the Merlin when we beat them, the rest of the time it tastes crap because we're buying..

Burton sailing club always has a huge selection of bottled beers behind the bar.

Thornbury SC has a selection of Butcombe and Wickwar bottled beers including BOB and Cotswold Way. For big events we normally get in polypins of these.

No bar in our club i am afraid but nice pub in the village of Combs near by. At Southport a few years ago I was talking to a member of South Staffs. S.C. He asked about our water and the bar, "We have no bar".  He was visibly shocked, "No bar? Why do you sail there"?

The Ouse Amateur Sailing Club clubhouse in the heart of Kings Lynn. I believe CAMRA recommended. Great beer, great views, great heritage.

Most sailing is done some way away at saddlebow (no bar), but the occassional event on the river is still held.

Otherwise I have wobbled out of Brightlingsea SC a few times many years back - hopefully it will still be as good.

Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else

Ahh, but when the sailing is held on the saddlebow, every time i have been they have handed out beer from a local microbrewery as prizes!

and the flip side of this question Craiggo... my vote is for the bucket of punch each team received at the Bradford Barrel back in the '90's.  Loopyjooze!

Woodfordes Wherry at Norfolk Broads Yacht Club (Wroxham).  The brewery is only a couple of miles away so you can stock up on the way home!

And Pin Mill SC (although mainly cruising yachts I believe) is right next door to the Butt and Oyster (Adnams).

I don't think bottled beers should count. Anyone can serve ale grabbed from their nearest cash and carry. Real respect needs to go to those who are putting some care and attention to their ales.

East Coast Piers Race ( http://www.eastcoastpiersrace.com" rel="nofollow - www.eastcoastpiersrace.com ) is sponsored by Adnams, always have a few kegs of their specials available for £2 a pint - all money goes to charity.... Smile

Trouble is these days it can be hard for a club to generate sufficient sales to do proper beer. We had to go to all bottled when we started throwing away the end of most barrels because it wasn't selling fast enough.

we had the same talking point at an AGM a while ago.... the crowd who actually use the bar apparently couldn't drink the beer quick enough.  'Ullage' became the default answer to any problems...   Apparently thanks to a better social programme, the bar now makes a profit and they've still retained some tapped beer.

Oh dear God, why did you bring that up?

The last time I did the Barrel as part of our old boys team, due to flight arrivals etc. I consumed the whole of our punch bowl. It's no surprise I was a bit ill.

Trust me it was close. Being thrown out of the club due to repeatedly falling asleep/unconscious and being carried back to my bed in the uni gym!

Still sailed a blinder the next day!

Don't you mean "sailed blind the next day"?

to be fair having seen the boats that Craiggo kept afloat for his team back then (somehow, god only knows), being blind would have been an advantage.... at least you wouldn't have actually known you were racing an utterly shagged out 420 against a flight of newish Larks.

a decent bottle is better than a poorly looked after/expired cask

snap! and i think these days at our club, there are more wine drinkers than bitter drinkers.

Adnams Regatta ale at Brightlingsea club is the one that stands out in our memories.
 
And although RogerD gets Milk Street brew in for events, the Crockerton Classic from Wessex brewery in the nearby Bath Arms pub is always good especially after a Tuesday night drift. And listed in the GBG!

But if you are looking for the true best then I'd discount anyone that goes to the nearest cash and carry. Yes, barrels are hard to look after, but I've seen it done well before. North Devon YC had an ale festival last time I was there with the Dart18's and that went down very well.

Our club paradoxically sells a brew called best !!! , contradiction of terms if you ask me :(. Other font has tenants lager , hey ho 

But big kev our new commodore has sourced and stocked the fridges with some fine bottled ales , last nights quaffing of "good times " , "kelpie" , "fraoch " left me feeling mighty fine

Funny, little Grumpf our new commodore was scoping Aldi for some cheap bottled crap to appease the dinghy wallers.. His favourite draft Becks Vier will continue to be served ice cool however.

Lee on Solent has Fullers HSB and Seafarers on all the time plus a guest beer which is normally from one of our small local producers like Oakleaf(Gosport) or Bowman Ales. We also have fosters, San Mig and Allinsons Cider.
Well we have this until the club get demolished next year to make way for new which should be ready late 2015.We will have a temporary club in a portacabin with a bar in it while we wait.

Gordon
