    Default BBC2: Alexis Polizzi 'The Fixer' and Hunter's Microbrewery.

    It seems that programmes about breweries are a bit like buses...

    The slightly scary Ms. Polizzi casts her eye over the financial difficulties of a struggling Devon micro. Should prove rather informative. To be shown Monday 1st September 21.00.

    I've never tried any Hunter's output,but this sounds like an interesting programme.Lots of micros fall by the wayside,this may shed some light on the issues that need to be considered.

    I don't know them either, but according to the almost defunct GBG they expanded from a five barrel plant to a sixty barrel one. 240 firkins is an awful lot of beer to sell especially outside the holiday season. Devon also has a lot of cider available and a few fairly well established micros. Their four beers listed in the GBG have a range from 3.8% to 4.3% so maybe they are all too similar and not that interesting.

    I don't think Ms Polizzi is scary, she's downright terrifying!

    I think Mrs May, our esteemed Home Secretary, makes a much better Dominatrix figure than young ms Polizzi.

    You Southerners don't have the delights of Carol Mather on your telly screens of course, perhaps Hondo can point his aerial towards the BBC in the North East & Cumbria area or even enjoy her delightful vision when next in York.

    It comes from the East

    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    I have had 2 Hunters beers and they were very average.I was in north Devon last week and Locale hasn't really caught on.Iwas surprised how few local beers were on and Doombar was on in nearly every pub.

    That's what the GBG says and your reaction probably speaks volumes.
    The drinks trade has alway been fickle and prone to fashions and trends.
    For various reasons I am quite concerned about Brodie's as they have been talking for the last year about having a new (I think 40 barrel) brewery for their core beers up and running by Autumn this year. To date there doesn't seem to be any sign of this happening so there has been a year of pubs wanting their beer and them not being able to provide it, including the William IV.
    There are enough quality micros in London today for it to easily go unnoticed if one were to fall by the wayside and there are many that I haven't even tried.
