Seeings as it is technically my home pint, I have a very soft spot for Timothy Taylor, although I don't think Landlord is their best pint. But for some reason best known to themselves they don't bottle the rest of them!
I do enjoy the controversy BrewDog cause, it's quite amusing watching how some people get very wound up by the strong beers. But realistically, as others have pointed out, your average Ned can't afford £55 for a bottle of STB. From my experience selling the stuff, only the really dedicated fans buy the high end BrewDogs anyway.
I actually made a very good Christmas cake using Tokyo*....
Which was devoured by my whole family, especially by my beer hating Mother. It tastes strangely sweet, lots of cranberries. Reminded me very much of the Nigerian Guinness I sell at work. Nice enough but I'm not sure you would want to drink a lot of it. Especially at 18%!
As for TNP and STB, you can buy them by the nip in the BD pubs. They're not cheap at around £5 a go but worth it for the experience. IMO I would rather use the money for a nice whisky, I would definitely rather be having a tasty Lagavulin than TNP / STB which I thought tasted like wet leaves....
