I believe that is Shere Drop from Surrey Hills Brewery

The bottle in the bottom right corner would appear to be a bottle of Bass. Interestingly the Bass Red Triangle was the first registered trademark!!

Tremendous stuff Mick, love the evidence from the books being posted up. Take as many bonus points as you want. :-D What would you prefer from the drinks on offer...gin and tonic with a lime, or a red-stripe beer :-D

SNAX "Hot cock soup fresh daily" tongue-in-cheek stuff from Mr Fleming? Did Roger Moore raise an eyebrow at the sign in the film? :-D

I think I'll draw a line at 10 beer related questions, anyone care to add a couple more so I can have a delve :?: :-D

As far as choosing G&T or any form of lager its an absolute no brainer for me but it would have to be Fever Tree Light Tonic!! :-D

I'll put up a couple more beer questions in a bit to complete the set!!

Number 9 comes from Southwold in Suffolk, and is a very nice beer in my opinion :)

And number 10 is this :lol:

Well I think we're done so 9 and 10 are
Spoiler: show
Southwold Broadside and Fullers London Pride with Bobins flowers being "london Pride", unless there is something more cryptic in the clue.
All the answers are there in the spoilers if anyone wants to play along.

I declare the Pickled Egg Quiz Beer-Themed 10, a resounding success thanks to all our viewers and joiners-in :-D
