Even as a former resident of the City of Liverpool, I often find it hard to like Liverpool's Cain's Brewery, due to a number of factors, not least of which is that their beer is pretty much crap. Nonetheless, I am on their email list and couldn't resist showing you all this pump clip for their newest beer, Blonde Bird Ale, featuring the wonderful city emblem of the Liver Bird. It is the first new cask beer brewed by their new Head Brewer, Jim Kerr.

Hopefully the beer will be really good - I do hope so - but either way, I love the pumpclip.

For me though, Cain's Brewery will always be Higson's Brewery even though it started out as, err, well, Cain's Brewery. It's a long story.
