    That's a shame.

    Never came across their beers before that I recall, though had heard of them.

    Was it supposed to be sour?

    It's a double whammy for me as I've never tried their beer or even heard of them!

    He seems to have taken the, admirable in my view, decision to brew what he wants to drink often using local ingredients and many of those he forages. I've tried a one or two that have missed badly for me, including the odd sour, but many, many more that have hit and hit well. I've always enjoyed the IPA's and porters particularly.

    Sad to see it go.

    It's small and mainly distributed in Norfolk I think. Never made it to 'Spoons.

    That would explain it, I'm not keen on Norfolk or East Anglia generally, partly because the trains are rubbish.
