It came as a surprise to me but when people discovered NZ in the early days for the Gold Rush along with many others the Irish came so you can get some Good Guinness here.
February is a good time to come mate.
We are absolutely spoiled for proper beer in Yorkshire but on the whole the Tetley's (supposedly Yorkshire's drink) is garbage. If you really want to drink the good stuff I'd be happy to run a pub crawl in Leeds!
Went on a Camerons brewery trip and the bar inside the brewery served excellent ale. We then went to the pub literally 100 yards over the road and the Camerons in there was abominable. Clearly does not travel well
Thats quite common. One of the reasons behind it is that the cellar training courses are usually run at the brewery and as a result the lines get cleaned more often. Another reason is that the in brewery bar is quite often free or heavily discounted for staff. The through put is much higher as a result so the 9s or 18s depending what they are using change probably daily. The pub across the road likely has a lower through put as the brewery workers are supping for free at work without the need to go out to the pub.
Most pubs clean their bitter lines once a week. I do my after every 9 gallon keg (firkin) has been dispenced. I know then that the line is always as clean as it can be which protects the quality and taste of the beer.
I was selling Adnams Ghost ship before xmas. Ive switched that back to Moorehouse Blonde Witch at the moment. I have a choice of 5 on most of the time sometimes 6. Theakstones Best, Reedley hallows Pendleside, Wainwrights Golden ale and Timothy Taylor Boltmaker.
Anyone coming over to Lancashire can have a forum discount
Naughty naughty Dave.
But I have to agree that they will have a limited life probably not much over 10 years.
As I have said before keep an eye on them and if you catch it in time it won't destroy the engine as I know from my very own project car still going strong since I put a new assembly in.
