    A question for our Friends in the North:has Black Sheep upped its game? I ask, because after a weekend of dull beer, the high spot (I blush to admit) was BS Best Bitter. While it isn't my favourite beer by any stretch of the imagination, it was fresh and refreshing, and well put together. Incidentally 3 other beer drinkers on a beer rating site-not that one! rated it fairly highly this weekend.

    I haven't had any BSB for a while but it's a reasonable choice when there's nothing else or the common North Yorkshire position where its a choice of Theakstons/John Smiths or BSB. It all depends where you get it, here or here it's always good but like all widely sold beers you can get some real disasters.

    Now Black Sheep Imperial Russian Stout is worth climbing over fells to get to

    If I was being cynical, I could just say you were very,very lucky! More seriously, I don't really know. I've not had anything by Black Sheep for months, as the pubs I frequent don't touch the stuff. However, as 'ob' points out, the Impy Stout has caused quite a stir and the seasonal Woolly Jumper porter was well received. Maybe the head brewer's creative juices are flowing and recipes are being tweaked?

    Once upon a time in a galaxy far away a.k.a. the Big Smoke, Black Sheep Best was one of the default guest beers for all and sundry. Now I never see it and I actually really miss it. I will jump at the next Black Sheep Best I come across.

    In my case, more like falling over the fells I reckon

    Askrig Yorkshire Dales Brewery is doing many brews way beyond what Black Sheep, or whatever it is called now, are capable of. I despair really when people walk into a pub and order the most boring brown beer they can see, purely because it's the only one they know.

    I tend to admire rather than enjoy YDB beers,though I haven't tried all their range. I would, naturally choose them over the mafia when offered it.This pub, at least under the old dispensation, kept a fine pint of Muker Silver:Farmers Arms

    I am off to the Yorkshire Dales this year. I will also be off for a second pilgrimage to Whitby...

    I would like to come across the magnificent Riggwelter. I haven't seen it in a pub since I visited the Bridge Inn in Pateley Bridge 4 years ago...

    Three Riggwelter pubs for you, General:Punch Bowl Inn, Punch Bowl Inn and Punch Bowl Inn.
    I haven't been to the Red Lion for a few years now: I hope the legendary landlady is still ruling the roost!
    Sorry, I cocked -up the link business. The other 2 pubs are the CB Inn at Langthwaite in Arkengarthdale, and the Red Lion, also in Langthwaite
