The idea that Brits just drink warm beer is a myth, and most pubs have glass fridges full of cold bottled beers, whilst those on draught are also often chilled.

Cider can also be served be served cold, and bottles are sometimes in the fridge alongside the array if fashionable cocktail drinks.

The general rule is that lighter (in colour) beers should be served colder than darker ones, weaker beers should be served colder than stronger ones and lagers should be served colder than other beers. There are however some exceptions to every rule, and these include Newcastle Brown Ale or Guinness

If you want cold beer from the tap then just order lager from the tap or ask for a bottle from the fridge, and in terms of bottled lagers you will probably be spoilt for choice.

As for draught lagers you will usually find the likes of Stella, Carlsberg, Kronenbourg, Fosters etc, although my local pub also has ice cold San Miguel on tap. Ciders on tap will most likely include the likes of Bulmers, Magners, Kopparberg, Thatchers etc whilst the most likely stout will be Guinness.

In terms of the large chain pubs, Weatherspoons serves Abbot Ale, Doom Bar Amber Ale and Ruddles Best, together with a selection of guest ales in terms of real ale and also has Guinness, John Smith’s (Bitter) and Magners (Cider) on draught.

In terms of Lager selections they include including Bud Light, Carling, Carlsberg, Coors, Foster’s, Heineken, Kronenbourg 1664, Punk IPA, San Miguel and Stella Artois.

Whilst in terms of spirits the selection includes gins including Bombay Bramble blackberry & raspberry gin, vodkas, whiskies, rums, brandies and liqueurs.
