North Bar Leeds, claims in a recent article to have been the first in the UK to serve Erdinger in May 2011. But I had this tipple in Alberts Harrogate April 2011.

They're away with the fairies in that case, I had Erdinger on tap 4 years ago when I was working in a Mitchells and Butlers bar!

Erdinger was in the UCL student union 2 years ago!!! Does any one know where you can get Erdinger Kristal in the UK? it is elusive!

Hi, I'm afraid you've misquoted or we've been misquoted, North has been selling Erdinger on draught since the turn of the century… Where did you see the article?

Hello, sorry combination of misquotes.
The article I believe, as it was 6 months ago, was in May 2011 edition of imbibe.
The claim was north bar started serving erdinger from May 2007 or May 2006. But I'd had it in Alberts, Harrogate the April before in the same year.

Erdinger was first imported in kegs by James Clay in 2003 – North Bar were amongst the first to have on draught. If that's a help!

In the heady days of 2011 it seems like a regular sort of beer.

I owned a pub in Lake District where in the mid 1980s we had draught Liefmans Kriek and St Georgen dark lager. I can also remember the introduction of Becks by S and N – with a ceramic font – that was wowzer in them days!! We agreed with S and N to be the only pub in South Lakes to have it on draught.
That seems ever more surreal>

overall misleading and nonsensical garbage designed to mislead people. I had Erdinger installed in our bar – Aikman's Bar in St. Andrews in Scotland – in at least the early 90's!!! It's been so long now I can't even remember when but it was in the days of the excellent and sadly missed Robert Newlands who did so much to promote Erdinger across the country.

It's just a pity that someone who has presumably only just arrived in the business looks to deceive people into what they know and are committed to. Sad sign of the times I suppose.

thanks malcolm.

10 months later and i finally get a reply that make some sense and can be backed up.
i knew it had been in the uk for many years, but it was interesting to see how many claim they were the first!
