There was a great beer in Bath called Smiles. I loved it and I amn't usually a fan of bitter.

There's plenty of pubs in Gloucester that have Boddingtons. I'm pretty sure that they have it in it's creamflow form in most of the pubs around the ground, and in it's tastier cask variety in a few pubs too. I shall keep my eye out for it when out and about over the next few weeks and report back for you.

Pubs to visit:
http://www.caferene.co.uk they have a new rugby bar opening on friday, i'll let you know what it's like in a few days once I recover from the opening night.
http://www.teaguesbar.com as said before, opposite the ground and owned by Gloucester and Lions legend Mike Teague.
http://www.countynightlife.co.uk/Gloucester-Pubs-Bars-Page.htm has a list of pubs in Gloucester.

The Kingsholm Inn - aka the Jockey, opposite the ground and rammed on matchday.

Jumpin Jak's - pub/club, won't let you in in your Rugby shirt, but a great laugh.

The New Inn - late license pub/club - older customers 40+, but a good laugh.

Sloane's - was the home of the Ulster supporters club on thier visit, great town pub, lots of real ales, and next door to Jumpin' Jaks.

The Royal Oak (Hucclecote) - my local, great pub, but out of town.

Zebra Bar - down the Chav zone of eastgate street.

The Coach & Horses - just round the corner from the ground, it's Gloucester's only official gay pub, should that be your bag.

TNT - another Chav bar down eastgate street

Baker Street - a local pub in town, although on the outskirts of town, late license.

Cafe Rene - my favourite. Loads of real beers and ciders. Good food, a rugby friendly downstairs bar, oh and it's Gloucester's only 24hr bar, although they only stay open until about 4am most nights.

The Station - as the name suggests it's next to the train station. has a hotel too, for your overnight needs. lots of tv's and pool tables.

Fosters on the Docks - in the Docks (no sh!t sherlock) and is busy with tourists in the day and dead at night (at least it was last time i went there).

The Northend Vaults - situated at the top of Kingholm Road/Worcester St. A nice little local pub in town.

H20 - Chav zone of Eastgate st.

The Gate - does good offers to those wearing glaws (or away shirt) badge, packed at weekends with beautiful girls and guys intent on getting smashed. has loads of screens and a garden too. not a bad stop off between Kingsholm and town.

Zest - next door to H20 in Chav zone, a privately owned cheap as chips alco pop shop.

The Old Bell - very old pub, used to be gay, may, may not be now, I haven't been back!

The Regal (Wetherspoons), it's a wetherspoons, you know what to expect, it used to be a three screen cinema, it's huge!

The Windmill - into Chav zone on eastgate street, but not as bad as the rest.

The Queens Head - there's two, the one in Longford (great food) and the one in Kingsholm (great location).

The Pig in the City - Not been in for ages, although used to drink in there regularly. at the bottom of westgate st. a nice enough bar with all your requirements catered for.
