    Got to be concerns about the place being spoilt and / or the brewery being discontinued. Same owners since 1968.
    I thought (probably wrongly) that the brewery had expanded away from the pub. That small pub near Winchester Station looked like a brewery tied house to me.

    Heard rumors about this two months ago but couldn't find anything online to confirm it ,depending on how it pans out could be very bad news as its a cracking pub and very good beer.

    The Albion is owned by Flowerpots, nice little pub.

    Is it owned or leased from a pubco? If the home pub and brewery are up for sale then presumably this would be as well if they own the freehold.
    I think it's going to become a regular thing older microbreweries retiring which I assume is what is going on here. At least there's no sign of Titanic stopping as they are currently working on a new BOD outlet in a former bank at Trentham.

    Default York Brewery

    Not quite disappearing, but the present brewery and tap room will close on the 21st June due to failure to agree a new lease.

    https://www.blacksheepbrewery.com/ne...ry-relocation/

    The beers will be brewed at Black Sheep in Masham (who own York Brewery) while a new site in York is found.

    I'm afraid I share the cynical view being expressed elsewhere, that once the bean counters realise the economies of doing all the brewing up at Masham, they'll find reasons for it not to return.

    I was told by a bloke in the Stourbridge Royal Exchange this week that there's a rumour going around that Batham's will sell up as they have no new blood willing to continue the business. I'm in the Victor Meldrew camp on this one but you never know.
