    That's more than fair enough, do what you enjoy, just doesn't float my particular boat, variety is the spice of life.

    Interesting. So GFB was not Gilbert's first brew - that may have been the likes of SW1, SW2 that were produced for OB? Now just called Orange, with a boutique hotel upstairs.

    I don't remember all that much about the Orange brewery. I think I only went there once and had a strongish Porter or Stout. The GFB name is still appropriate as it would have been the first beer at his own brewery.

    I don't know who puts these lists together,they certainly haven't been there lately in the case of number 3, a good while now since they showcased any TT beers.
    Only done two, nos 2 and 3.

    I've definitely been to five and may have been to six as number 10 the Old Green Tree in Bath certainly rings a bell. I've definitely been to 3,5,6,7 and 8. I didn't like 7 & 8 on my visit over the last year and 5 & 6 are both Adnam's tied houses in the Southwold area which I visited over 20 years ago. It's debatable whether they are the best Adnam's houses in town.

    A better hit-rate than usual for me - 8/10 from this list

    As Pub Curmudgeon pointed out on his twitter not one north of Nottingham, unsurprisingly I've only been in the Nottingham one and the Bath one.

    Only been in one, the Betjeman, and it certainly wouldn't make my top 100.
