    And they called Mitchell and Butler a brewer! I guessed Marston for the West Midlands due to Banks's and Heineken UK for Notts where S&N took over Home and Greenalls took over Shipstones.

    The general public and dozy, lazy journalists believe nothing has changed in pubs and brewing for years, they think it's lots of nice little family brewers owning a few local tied houses with an old school landlord and lady running the pub. They've never heard of the likes of Punch, EI, Admiral, GK etc, let alone what kind of shenanigans they get up to. They may think Newton & Ridley is a real brewery.

    It is encouraged by certain companies who have umpteen brands of pubs and beers and of course don't put the actual brewery of origin on the pump clip etc or the true owner of a pub on the signage.

    I'm sure all the breweries in Greater Grotley are quite wonderful

    Even this shoddy tosh isn't quite as blatant as Young & Co's Brewery PLC...

    Yeah you get it all the time on local facebook groups and so on. Whenever another one closes down those who only ever went in the place on Mother's Day and complained all the time about the noise at closing time are the first to blame 'The Brewery' for their much loved but clearly underused local's demise.
