    In Kent The Dog House and Sunshine Brewery have just closed. Not sure if the brewery part ever really got going.

    I was wondering about that-hadn't heard of them for a while.

    Having seen this, I've marked the Dog House as closed.

    Only saw Sunny Republic in the Market Porter regularly and they also had a cuckoo brewer or maybe it was a brand from them also in the MP called Kingston Farm.Sunny Republic brewed on a farm in a village called Kingston so a bit suspicious.

    Brodie's are not currently brewing in Leyton but I think at the Wobbly brewery in Hereford. The Leyton brewery is supposed to be having work done but there are other issues with the pub. I haven't been there for a few months as I've heard it's pretty grim.
    Brodies are brewing elsewhere while they have a 20bbl brewery installed at the pub.

    Their first few batches were pretty good but quality control went down the toilet.
