    Anyway, back on topic. I think its a good idea to get as many of us as possible nationally together at the same time. Any more takers?

    I'd go to the Midlands one. It'd be nice to meet those of you that go to that one... its a shame we can't all meet up together, but I know its not feasible.

    Another one for the midlands here ... but if a London one is being arranged I might go to that so that Russ and I don't do a double act all night (though I did it with Stephen last time ...)

Guinness only contains 198 calories (838 kilojoules) per imperial pint (20oz UK) (1460 kJ/L), less than an equal-sized serving of skimmed milk or orange juice and most other non-light beers.

    The water used comes from Lady's Well in the Wicklow Mountains.

    Draught Guinness and its canned counterpart contain nitrogen (N2) as well as carbon dioxide.

    I'm with Geoff here lager doesn't really have enough of a flavour to bother drinking it and I ashamedly admit to drinking lager when I was younger, Real Ales are the way to go now though!



    Would be a midlands one for me too! Where? and When? Hopefully the girlfriend won't go into labour while I'm away drinking lol!

    Re: Christmas get-togethers.....

    ah, the delights of brew 11.
    I'd like to put my name down for the edugeek north do. I may have a problem staying for the meal as I live in the sticks and my last guaranteed train back is 21:21, otherwise I'll have to kip on victoria station, and I'm not as young as I used to be (don't laugh, but since I started typing this I've had to go to the toilet 3 times. ok, on the first 2 occasions I'd forgotten why I was there)

    Plus it rots your teeth, which is nice.

    This is why we are starting early, so we can all have a few drinks together before the meal, and people can still be home at a decent time if they need to leave early.

    Anyhow, I'm going to create a couple of forums tonight for this very subject as I envisage it will get quite busy, and I now need organisers for each region to step forwards and be counted.

    Re: Christmas get-togethers.....

    Where do you suggest the S/SW lot should go (now, now)? Somewhere like Plymouth is a long way from here and quite difficult to get to - do we have a definitive list of where everyone is so that we could chose a suitable place?
