I know I'm a bit late posting this as the news broke last month about them stopping production, but I can't remember seeing it discussed and it is really sad - obviously first and foremost from a jobs point of view but also because their beer and pubs are good.

 

What are the chances of their 'Beer Quarter' proposal or whetever it is coming off? It seemed a bit far-fetched when they announced it but the line from the owners seems to be that without it, then it really is the end for the brewery. Not sure when the final decision on it is.

 

All seems a bit strange and I'm not quite sure how they've managed to make such a mess of it at a time when real ale is more popular than it has been for years and they seemed to have a real foothold in a quite a few supermarkets. Is there more to it than meets the eye?

Tbh I thought the quality of the beer dropped after the last closure, and the only pub of theirs that I've been in recently (Dr Duncan's) felt a bit tired and shabby. I don't know if that's representative of all of them.

 

Still very sad though and, as you say, you saw their bottles on supermarket shelves, but maybe that was only in local stores.

He had the beard of a man who wanted people to say "oo, I like your beard".

 

There's a lot of that about now. They wear converses and sport a beard.

A salesman came to my door recently who had cultured a brylcreemed centre parting and a curly black moustache. He was dying for me to say something about the go compare adverts but I just said I wasn't interested while shutting the door. I think that's his sales gimmick, his little conversation opener.

This guy had a curly moustache and a little chin beard. He also wore braces.

 

I wear converse, btw. You know why? They look nice, Tony. Is that ok? Is it?!

It's the pairing of them with an affected beard that is noteworthy. (But noteworthy is what they want isnt it ? )

You are just being yourself, wearing your little shoes, doing all your s***. I'm not for one minute trying to rain on your converse parade.
