Hi, my name is Dave and I'm from Yorkshire in the UK. I'm a bit of an audiophile, a music lover and I'm rather fond of real ale and single malt scotch.
I've been toying with the idea of trying pipe smoking for a couple of years and finally decided to jump in. I did a bunch of research and picked up a corn cob, so now I'm ready to start sampling some blends. So far I've just tried Samuel Gawith Squadron Leader. I look forward to discussing more options as I try to find my way in the mysterious world of pipe tobacco. :thumbs:
You had me at music, ale, and whiskey and I can tell that we will be great friends! :lol:
WELCOME Sir!!! :D
Not just Ale.. REAL Ale. If it has been adulterated by forced carbon dioxide, it's just not the same. Beer should be dispensed with a beer engine, from cask, by a lovely bar lady with some serious arm strength.

(sorry, I am a homebrewer, and I brew my own Real Ale :) )

About 31 years ago I got the opportunity to go to an English style pub in Houston called the "Red Lion" where the walls were decorated with portraits of the Queen and Winston Churchill, the cook was frying up fish and chips, the game was darts and the beer was on tap. That day I had a Bass Pale Ale that was from a keg that had been imported from England and was served only slightly chilled, I then followed that up with a "Black & Tan" which is Bass and Guinness poured with expert precision to get a nice separation in the colors of the ingredients,... to this day that was probably... no DEFINITELY was the best beer experience of my life. :D

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.
