While supping a pint of Bushy's in the Rover's Return in Douglas, I noticed on the wall, an old advert for a long defunct brewery, Clinch's. Clearly with what I saw contained in it, it was an Isle of Man brewery and the name seemed familiar, but I couldn't remember where I'd seen it before.

Later while waiting for the lovely E who had been on the steam train to Port Erin, it all came flooding back as I surveyed the building in front of me, which is pictured (right). Wikipedia has a good piece on it here. I can add for their info, that it is now a tapas bar, in part at least.

Looks great doesn't it?
