    Fair comment.

    It's a local brewery for me but I've only ever tried one of their products and that was at a "sale" price. I'd be a lot more worried if it was Redemption or ELB going this way.

    The very first night Beavertown beer went on sale I had a pint of the beer .It was Neckoil and it was a pretty poor pale ale brewed in the basement of a restaurant.Seven years later they are now valued at about £100 million. Unbelievable.

    Tickety Brew have hung their boots up, the few beers I tried didn't blow me away.

    I've seen their beers around more often than I've tried them. I had an East India Porter last December. I can work that out as it's a week when I had Batham's XXX!
    About all I feel qualified to say about them is that they weren't complete rubbish. I wonder if the recent hot weather had anything to do with their demise. If it did then there will probably be more to follow.

    Just heard today, from a friend, that Bradford Brewery has closed down. A Google search didn't bring up much, but the website would seem to confirm it. Rather like Moby with Tickety Brew, I have to say the Bradford beers didn't do a lot for me.
