After posting what I thought was a rather nice/funny advert in the Sainburys thread I have stumbled across some more that made me chuckle....Purely for entertainment reasons. The w/end will be here soon.

Enjoy :)

I saw them in the coffee shop fridge when I went to Eden camp. Right alongside Lancaster beer. Took a photo, I think it's on the Eden camp thread.

Wonder what it tastes like. Wish I'd bought a bottle now instead of wasting my money on 5 machine gun bullets. :rolleyes:

I do like the "Downed all over Kent" slogan, particularly good. Ale however is not my thing. Give me a good German Hefe-Weiss over Ale any day!!

It's a fine brew, especially the draft. Sheps is the oldest independent brewery in the country and do an outstanding range. It's just up the road from me at Faversham. Most irritating part is watching lorries of it rolling past on the way to Dover, to end up in French supermarches so much cheaper.

Incidently there is a Pub in Sheffield called 'The Spitfire' with a picture of the obvious outside. Not sure what the story is there though :)

They used to do tours of the brewery for nothing, I looked about 6 months ago and they charge now, sign of the times I suppose, but the tour used to be great especially as you'd finsih off 'trying some of the beer' - in other words get as much beer down ya neck in about 45 minutes :)

Now available in Sainsbury's for the bargain price of a quid a bottle - -however it's not a favorite of mine. I'll stick with Greene King Abbot.

I'll have to try this if I can find it here in the States. If it's as good as Fuller's, Young's, and Old Speckled Hen I'll be satisfied.

If it helps, the current brew makes pretty good boot polish.

Here is a photograph that I meant to post at the time.
Better late than never!

It is from the book SPITFIRE by Alfred Price.

Spitfire ale was originally brewed for the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. I believe that the profits went, and still go, to the RAFBF.

Remembering my good mates Flt Lt Al Squires and CXX/3 who died in Afghanistan on 2 Sep 06.

And Sqn Ldr Ant Downing who died of wounds received in Afghanistan on 23 Dec 11 - another one of the best.

Also remembering my ggf Pte Thomas Roberts who fought for his country in The Great War and died on 25 Sep 15 at Loos.

And my gf Pte Thomas Roxburgh who fought for his country in the Second World War and survived.
