    I used to work in office next door to the brewery. The smell they pumped out day in day out made us all feel sick.

    The way I see it, we all have the choice - I don't have a television either, I'm happy to do without it - but I do drink copious amounts of fizzy pop at times.

    Hair of the dog?

    We have a crate of Carlesberg under my desk in the office, waiting of the right occasion. It has sat there since xmas because a) only 2 of us drink beer and it was given to us as a team so we'd feel bad about scarfing it and b) none of us particulalry like Carlsberg. We'll probably take it to the Staff Summer BBQ and neck it all!!

    Also drinking Thwaites makes your web filtering a tiny bit better (as they are also Smoothie users!)

    Whisky lovers: try Glenkinchie 20yr old. Expensive... but worth it.

    I can't believe no-one's mentioned a good pint of Speckled Hen! That'll be my evening.
