Possibly the most irritating and sad people on the entire planet. Real Ale bores can not only tell you the Specific Gravity of the beer they're drinking and most other beers in the known universe, they even know what Specific Gravity means.

I'll node it soon, after i've had a chance to look it up. Real Ale Bores are inevitably bearded middle-aged men with nothing better to do than than tell people over and over again about what they're drinking is inferior and they should really switch to Ragwort's Old Combustible or something equally foul, inane and undrinkable.

Real Ale Bores are right up there with trainspotters in the league of sad, lifeless bastards but much more irritating as they are inclined to proselytize.

Either hide from them or bait them, they deserve it.
