Default Clone,

Well better than a clone.

I've just bottled My Norfolk nog, its made by the brewery and is th same as they serve in the pubs.

It's tastey.

I brewed up some Norfolk Nog earlier this year. I found it a little thin and treacly. However, it was my first homebrew attempt.

I still have a couple of bottles of it left. It does improve with aging!

Theres a nice english pub in Dallas, near one of the universitys. Drank many bitters there and played a lot of darts on a business trip. Also a bar downtown that has like 100 beers on tap - sorry no names.

well, we have the Ginger Man Pub www.gingermanpub.com (Houston, Dallas, Austin, NYC) and it's a cool old house/pub atmosphere, and they have 70-74 taps, but not brewed on site like a cool old pub in England. plus it's in the middle of the Rice Village by Rice University. the Eddie Bauer across the street kinda reminds you your in Texas! ;~)
also across the street is Two Row's Brewpub that has good food and brews (www.tworows.com)

Also in the Dallas area, The Flying Saucer. No homebrews, but dozens of taps and oddity imports. For brewed-on-premises, try Two Rows or Humperdinks (Dallas location only). Pretty good-tasting brew. In fact, a lovely bartender at Two Rows was the one who finally convinced me to home brew. Of course, she probably could've convinced me to gargle with arsenic, but that's another story.

yea, there's a Saucer in downtown Houston too, but i don't think it has the atmosphere that The Ginger Man does (in Houston any way).

yep, "those" bartenders will do it to you every time!

We have a Saucer here in Raleigh, too. I went there long enough to get a plate on the wall and ogle the barmaids, and that seemed to be long enough for their lines to get fouled beyond help (or at least that's what it tastes like). BTW, if you try to drink 200 different beers in one bar, you will have some bad ones.

Thor, you need to make it over to Fort Worth and hit the Bull and Bush. It's on Montgomery street over by the museum. It's a neat little pub.
