    Sounds like the name my live on via Hopcraft to a certain extent.
    I like Waen beers so am sad to see them go.

    Fisher Brewery in Noke have gone.

    No great loss, I'd say.

    Looks like the end for Wrekin Brewery (formerly Ironbridge) , both their pubs have changed hands the Fighting Cocks has gone to Hop and Stagger Brewery and the Pheasant where the Brewery was situated has gone to Rowton Brewery , Rowton are to continue brewing the bestseller Wrekin Gold but whether at the pub brewery or at their own is not yet known .

    Their Wills Neck was the winner in SIBA's national competition 2013 and class Gold Medalist in 2013 & 2014, I vaguely remember it being a runner up in Camra's Champion Beer of Britain competition but that isn't on their website so I could be wrong. I had it around then and thought it a pretty good drop.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    I've seen and tried Will's Neck in JDWs. Their Plastered Pheasant is on the current National list. I tried it in the Southsea JDW the Thursday before last and it was a pleasant enough strongish dark beer. You need to be quite a big brewer to get on the JDW national list as I would guess you need to potentially supply up to 200 barrels. Maybe they are just too big for the area they are based and of course there is cider as a distraction.
