    Default Corona Quiz 03

    Are you ready for another? A couple of railway ones for Aqualung, beer for all.

    1. Name all the breweries in Tadcaster and who currently owns them?

    2. Monty Python star Terry Jones once owned a brewery, what was it called?

    3. Which south eastern railway was run from the Midlands?

    4. Which ground breaking brewer became a taxi driver before returning to brewing? Why is his brewery and some of it's beers called what they are?

    5. Which brewery's logo looks the same when upside down?

    6. What links a London railway terminus with a famous rural author and poet? Clue; is this obscure or just maddening the crowd by far?

    7. Who invented Firkin pubs?

    8. Pin, Firkin.... name the next three in the sequence?

    9. Which English brewery claims to be the oldest and which one says they're wrong?

    10. How are the Somerset village of Monkton Combe and Liverpool linked by railway? Which Liverpool pub is involved? And where does a London suburb fit into the show?
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    I knew 1,2,7 and 8 with the qualification of looking in the GBG to see if there were any new ones for question one. I'm really struggling with some of the others!
    9 seems to be under current dispute but I've got two names.
