    Thanks for the breakdown LC. The real surprise is Wishbone, as they're really just down the road in Keighley. With the West Yorkshire market being so crowded, it's perhaps understandable I've not come across those from further afield, but with sampling 450-500 beers a year, I should have come across Wishbone by now.

    They had about 6 of their beers on that week and I only went to the pub with a slim hope that a Wishbone beer was still on.My findings may not reflect how good or bad this brewer is.

    A bit late this week. An incredibly difficult choice between Brass Castle Bad Kitty and Harrogate Brewing Co's Kursaal Imperial Stout. As it was barrel aged for six months the Kursaal Imperial Stout just has it.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Dark Star Hophead DRY. The usual 3.8% but dry hopped with Cascade & Amarillo.

    It really is dry as well, once you've drunk one you need another to get some moisture back in your mouth.

    Tried several times in The Baum.
