The people have spoken!

The poll is in. The question was “Ought Beer Festivals stock a nice keg of ice cold fizzy lout?” An astonishing 37 people bothered to take part and if that’s not conclusive I don’t know what is.

Out of 37 people (37 people actually bother to read this tosh?, has the internet run out of Abi Titmuss videos?) 43%, or 16 voted a resounding YES agreeing the lout is a traditional beer style in its own right. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it. Considering that 72% of people with nothing better to do than read crap on the internet are pongy ale drinkers, see here, that means pong lovers want to see the lout on.

Half that sum 21% or 8 people voted that only "proper" lager defined by what beardies like and what they don't ought be at the geekery events. Fence sitters maybe, but at least they want to see some form of lager to break the tedium of endless scoops of pong.

A pitfull few 13 people or 35% voted No way AT ALL, EVER, lager is for puffs. So there you have it. Tandy and Clarkey take note. We expect to find some lout on at whatever festival you’ve got coming up.

I hate the name of my blog but couldn't think of anything better to call it five years ago, and still couldn't afterwards. Until just now.

Too late to rebrand as "Endless Scoops of Pong" you reckon?

If you want it Nutty, you can have it. So long as I can still call you Nutty. Seems rude to call you Pongy.

Herr'man is secretly into lout. He's going to Chicago for a meet up with his American mates for a beer party. Chicago??? Chicago is one of the best US cities for lout. Old Style was born there. Filled with Irish bars, some bars that serve Belgians, and Goose Island, what else does it have?? Vienna Beef Hot Dogs?? The Cubs?? Christ give me a break! I'm thinking he needs to speak to a travel agent, or someone who can guide him to proper beery destinations. Many of the best beers in the world are brewed in Southern California. If that isn't your thing, there's also lout galore! I'm sick and tired of Southern California being snubbed by these supposed beer experts. If they're experts, why is Chicago their beery destination???

Keep up the nice line in German lout-peddling totty, CL. It's much appreciated. :-)

Woolpack Dave said...

It might be a sad reflection on my character, but I agree with Dick.

Barm said...

It's not lout they're drinking. it's proper lager that beardies like.

Tyson said...

Who's looking at the lout???

Love the Brewdog poll. But surely there is room for compromise here? Anyone for Tedious Nazi Glitter's Paedophile Anal Rape IPA?

Tandleman said...

You've never been to Chicago Sausage. That's clear!

I would not use most of the best SoCal beers to put out a fire. If I want grapefruit juice I'll squeeze a grapefruit. They lack the balance of a fine cooking lager.

Rabidbarfly said...

Surely it should be Gary Glitters Paedoph-ale?

Cooking Lager said...

Paedoph-Ale. I like it. Can't change a poll after people vote but if Glitter wins it's Paedoph-Ale.

Damn right. Whorst you're just a SoCal beer faggot.
