Bath Ales have a pub in Oxford now. It's brill. Although probably not very exciting for Bath Alty  Grin

Oxfordshire Ales, Hook Norton, Wychwood and Brakspear are the big local ones. But there's sh*t loads of choice throughout the city. No Dunham Massey, though  Cheesy

Hook Norton do a couple of very good ales.

Hooky Dark is my favourite, I think. I quite like most of their range though.

Don't they do one called Old Hooky, very nice , I think.
It's a constant source of annoyance to me that real ale is so much better down south!

Lovely beer.

Look hard and you can find some gems - Dunham Massey Ales are superb, up here we have Arran, Black Isle and the unconventional Brewdog. Then there's some decent Ales in the Lake District: Jennings, Hawkshead, Coniston Ales etc.

Brewdog have sold out a bit by moving towards keg. I still like their bottled beers though. Most of them being ridiculously strong.

As for real ale being better down south...madness! Loads of great breweries up north. Marble might be my absolute favourite (although Brodies of London are challenging).

PS. Can we change the name of the thread to Invasion Game/Massive Altrinchamian Piss-up in Oxford?

Not actually been to that area, but seems to be a bus ride away from the train station, or walkable if you enjoy long walks, it'd be pretty scenic.

Many Northern beers are improved immeasurably if you get them to take the infernal sparkler off the pump.

SW i normally agree with you perspicacious comments however this time you are talking bollocks proper beer should have a creamy head boddingtons poured without the dogs dick was not worth paying for and beers like Tetleys, Timmy Taylors, Theakstons etc are better for this method of dispense. you are entitled to your incoreect opinion but have obviously turned into a shandy drinking southern poof (can one still say that)

I await a substantive reply containing reasoning for your  current southern girly status.

Decent beer is served through pumps with no sparkler, and is pulled by a comely wench whose pectoral embellishments are all the better for the exercise. She herself may be pulled later in ideal conditions.

This match wasn't in my plan for the season, but I could be tempted if finances permit !
