    A possible silver lining for CMIC members - Fullers is about 15% of total holdings - as it's been a very poor year so far.
    Mmmmm, yummy! ESB & raw fish. I hope this means that London Pride will be removed from certain East London JDWs.

    There already is a keg version but it is only in competition with John Smiths smooth.

    Probably the opposite.They will brew massive quantities at Meantime without compromising the Brewed in London part of it and be able to price it to suit Wetherspoon.
    This now makes Zerodegrees the largest independent brewer in London and Twickenham second.

    What's envisaged is likely to be a keg and bottled version produced somewhere in China and sold in fancy hotels in the far east as Authentic English Craft Beer. And similarly in other parts of the world. Remember we are kidded into thinking that the likes of Staropromen and Pilsner Urquell are genuine Czech beer of ancient tradition, not a soup of British chemicals. It works both ways.

    The far east is def a big market.Fullers are traditionally a British brewer but they export 70% of their beer and are a well known brand abroad. As much as Fullers have tried to join the Craft revolution with collaborations and a new pilot plant for small batch beers they have dismally failed to impress me this year.

    Thanks hondo.I will keep an eye out for Aprirose,but with just under 200 pubs they are below (my somewhat arbitrary 200 ) limit for inclusion in the Second Division on post #26

    So that's four owners for this 'lucky' 45 in four years: Spirit > Greene King > British Land > Apirose?

    Thanks for the heads up.I won't change post#5 until shareholder approval is gained but it looks a done deal.The pubco majors will then shrink from 10 to 9,and we should get an accurate pub count figure for the Ei/Stonegate combination once the deal closes.
