    I've only had three of their beers, so not a huge sample, but two of them I found to be pretty good and the other had a bit of an odd taste to it. May or may not have been the brewery's fault, of course.

    They have been around for a good few years.Had about 3 of there beers and cant recall any so just average imo.The bar is getting set higher by the really good breweries so I think the breweries that have muddled along for years are most at risk.I notice the lack of variety in London pubs this last year .The pubs that used to take any old crap as long as it was cheap seem to be disappearing apart from Wetherspoons.

    I found 4 on my BOTW list and I don't remember anything about them. There are a few micros in the NW that have been around a long time (I'm not suggesting they are any better) that probably have quite a grip on the market. I can think of three, Moorhouse, Coach House & Phoenix. They are certainly common in JDWs. On the Crafty side I believe that Marble have been brewing for some time.

    Had plenty of good pints from Phoenix but the other two no way.I am amazed that Coach House have kept going as I rate them as one of my least fav breweries.

    I've had a few Coach House beers within living memory. I found their Lemon & Ginger and Plum beers to be fairly good, but the others I have had have been pretty unremarkable.

    Going back to one of the previous posts about Bradford Brewery folding, looks like EYES Brewing are set to take over the site of the former Bradford Brewery.

    https://www.thetelegraphandargus.co....wery-building/

    No indication that they will be reviving any of the Bradford beers and looks like they will be using the site for their own brewing operations.

    Ealing beer fest usually has about 10 beers on from Coach House all with fruit flavouring and they are very popular with the younger crowd who attend Camra fests but don't really like the taste of beer.

    I like to try something a bit different every now and then, so those have ticked the box for me.
