    Her response, whilst occasionally straying toward the intemperate, rather neatly encapsulates some of my initial thoughts as well. "Brewers know beer best" is a lot of cock-waving nonsense.

    Oh that's been going on always. The same people who whinge about Wot's Bruin taking expensive display ads from the big brewers. And it gets even whingier if the pint depicted is not deemed full enough.

    One of the things that annoys me about some of the newer brewers is their decision to only produce unfined beers. I've heard people spouting on about beer not needing to be clear to be good and will go along with that only to a degree. The trouble is that cloudy beer often means there's something wrong with it and if these people get their way it will surely open the flood gates to second rate publicans and bar staff foisting poor cloudy beer onto the punters.
    The Vegan argument is ridiculous as they are in a tiny minority and to me Vegan=Fruitcake. I know a few Vegetarians and respect their views even to the extent of occasionally trying and even cooking myself vegetarian meals, although I must admit the JDW vegetarian options aren't that great.

    I agree. Second rate brewers, too.

    A poor reason for rejecting the argument - what if they happen to be right? Does it matter that there are so few of them?

    ...an even worse argument. When in a hole, stop digging. There are other ways of fining beer - it is not necessary to use isinglass.

    That's a little better. Bon appetite!
