    I was overlooking the Progressive Beer Duty that some of the regional brewers keep on whingeing about (why don't they just stop supplying the supermarkets?).
    I don't know the exact details but I believe the full 50% discount only applies to breweries producing less than 5,000 hectolitres per annum which if I've calculated correctly is just under 400 firkins. I would have thought that they brew a lot more than this. I still agree that it's a rip-off irrespective of how much they brew.

    EDIT: I have checked my calculation and think that should be just under 4,000 firkins!
    Given that Dark Star have two tied houses and are seen as guests all over the place I would think they must easily exceed that figure.

    I paid £2.50 for a half of keg crap Whistable Bay Pale Ale in this pub http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/76666/,it has put me off from going down
    down London again for a while.

    I do hope i get the urge to go down again,but when i can drink in pubs in West Yorkshire and get most halfs at £1.50 or less and a bag of proper chips
    with scraps on for 90p,worth a trip to Sowerby Bridge just for the chips and scraps,but the pub were also decent.
    We are all equal,but some are more equal than others
