Discourse

Just out of interest, how many of the occasional visitors to this ng are now contributing to CAMRA's "Discourse" message board? Or lurking there?

I can post here without having to disclose my working e-mail address or joining CAMRA. So what do I gain by giving ip my privacy?

Membership of CAMRA and a smug feeling of being part of an "exclusive" club...
I don't see why discussion shouldn't be open - CAMRA membership has other benefits and being part of a closed talking shop online shouldn't really be one of them.

The sad fact remains that posts to this ng are few and far between. I get the impression that CAMRA members no longer post here, myself excepted. Perhaps there are still CAMRA members lurking here, or perhaps not.
FWIW, I don't find Discourse much busier, with just a handful of people repeating themselves over and over again. (OK, so that's pretty much like Usenet then. But with fancy graphics.)

I find most web forums consume more bandwith (fancy graphics) and less user control. This helps with communication?

Seems pretty dull to me.
Looks as if CAMRA have adopted "craft" beer de facto (I may have missed the announcement as such); keg beer appeared at the Cardiff^w Great Welsh Beer Festival recently. NuCamra anybody?

PS where's the big campaign highlighting pub closures and the questionable ombudsman?

Keg beer? Or proper unpasteurised, unfiltered, beer using a key-keg system?

That sounds pretty grim. We have no traditional keg at our local beer festival (Peterborough). We do have KeyKeg - which does have beers which undergo secondary fermentation, and are not artificially carbonated by CO2.
However there are two problems with KeyKeg for me - the beers are too chilled, and too expensive.

I am not sure if I am on the right hymnsheet here. Could you give a few examples of KeyKeg beers? I may have had some, but I am not sure.

A lot of them also exist as ordinary cask beer too. Well beers with the same name, I don't know if there are tweaks to the recipe for beer intended for key keg.
The local pub that just does key keg is hosting a Magic Rock takeover. So 18 of their brews are on at the moment stuff like Salty Kiss, Dancing Bear, Dark Arts etc. But in the past they have had Thornbridge, Elusive, Cloudwater, Wild Weather, Beavertown, Bexar County, Weird Beard, 3 Blind Mice etc.

he announcement as such)
There will be a Great Debate about this at next year's CAMRA National Confe rence in Warwick. The only announcement that you may have missed would be t he one that informed us that certain "key-keg" beers are now considered kos her. Personally I beg to remain Orthodox on this one.
I'm starting to wonder if we may have to rethink the Charter for our little newsgroup, which since time immemorial [1] has been "used for the discussi on of Traditional cask or bottle-conditioned beers and the places they are consumed in". See .
[1] Akshully not immemorial at all. My browser tells me that our Charter wa s last modified on 20 October 2000 at 11:23:42.
