The 10(ish) Westcountry beers my readers think you should try

January 11, 2011

Yesterday I posted 10 Westcountry beers I think you should try. Some of you agreed with me, some of you didn’t.

So as a way of furthering debate (and hopefully sales), here are some “crowd-sourced” suggestions from comments left on here, tweets and Facebook messages:

Much agree with these fine sips especially Proper Job. Couple I haven’t had. Try O’Hanlons Yellowhammer and Firefly Bitter– truly, madly slurpy! – Stephen Barrett via the Blog

What about some of the Red Rock Beers from Bishospteignton? Apparently excellent – @grazingkate via Twitter

Chalky’s Bite from Sharp’s – I’m a recent convert – @Growingownfood via Twitter

Beer – shocking you’ve missed Badger Brewery totally! 😦 – @chalknewton via Twitter

No Butcombe Bitter 😮 #shocking – @rupturedduck via Twitter

No Bays on the list either? Their Devon Dumpling is very good & I’ll also make a girly vote for Skinner’s Hunney Bunney@missbishops va Twitter

What? No Skinner’s?! – @mcguiredavid via Twitter

Anything by Sharp’s, St Austell, Otter, Dartmoor, SummerSkills. I just love a pint of Indiana’s Bones? – Nick Ingram via Facebook
