The number of British breweries is pushing 1400, and there are 70 in London alone – in 2006 there were only two in the capital. Hundreds of small, highly experimental craft brewers have sprung up in garages and industrial estates using borrowed, begged or second-hand equipment. They are infusing beer with chilli and chocolate, ageing it in whisky barrels, hopping the hell out of it, and they still can’t make the beer fast enough to satisfy a new, young, discerning drinkers who want to be floored by the hop-smacking, flavour-packing, tongue-partying beers. Big-brand bland beer it ain’t. Here we’ve picked out thirteen frankly, cuckoo-minded beers from around Britain, yet remain true to what a great beer is: quality, balanced, and most of all, drinkable.

Vans (Dajiban) are the HOT SHIZ in Japanland I guess Saw this on another board:People have been asking what this is in the "2010 trends" thread, so I thought I'd make an appearance thread about it. I suppose it's like any other wacky JDM style (i.e. shakotan, yanky, vanning-zoku, Dekotora, etc), but I think this one is tits.I first stumbled across this back in July on the Japanese RS Watanabe website in the "owner car" section.It's been referred to as "Youga Base" style, "Hentai Vans", and a few other things, but apparently they just refer to their cars as "Dajjibans", or Dodge Vans.
