    I can't find any reference to this brewery anywhere. Anybody got any idea?

    doesnt help that much but page 5

    Just used the link from 'hondo' and saw this beer mentioned. It's actually brewed by Brewsters not Prospect. I'm not nit picking, but just wanted to say that Brewsters 'Decadence' was one of my favourite beers last year. RHL is described as a red ale hopped with American varieties. Sounds fascinating, would love to try it, given the brewery's track record for awards.

    An early leader for me, Dorset Ammonite. Not my usual style, but well worth a try or two. Mind you, it might not stay on top for long, I'm off to try the Bengal Lancer tonight...........

    Still don't know who they are though.

    You are of course correct a&h. I even have the pump clip here at home (before it goes on Ebay) and still got it wrong.

    Sadly it went after I'd had one pint last night, still the Phoenix Massacre replaced it, so it wasn't all bad news.

    Another of our local breweries Green Mill delivered last night (from the back of his estate car as usual, it must play hell with the cars springs). Another 9 of Big Chief, it always goes down well at the Baum.

    He got a silver medal at the SIBA North awards. Did you see any at the SIBA beer festival in Nottingham trainman?

    My BOTW definitely goes to Exmoor's BEAST in The Britannia, Rowley Regis. Now I know why Runningdog loves to drink the BEAST. It is frigging awesome! Very DANGEROUSLY drinkable..



    I felt very light headed after just one pint..

    Yep, I looked up Brewster's Brewery after enjoying Daffy's Elixir last year. This enlightened me with the fact that a brewster is a female brewer and this one, Sara Barton, is producing some excellent ales. Perhaps a visit to Grantham could be on the cards...

    No ROB, but I wouldn't necessarily have remembered! I see the list has a Mill Green MILD, but that's just coincidence of similar brewery name - full list att'd;

    Bizarrely, The North seems not to have been represented in the Best, Premium, & Strong Bitter Categories.
